Energy efficient choices can save families about a third on their energy bill with similar savings of greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features, style or comfort. ENERGY STAR helps you make the energy efficient choice.
Generations® Energy Efficient Exteriors have earned the ENERGY STAR by meeting strict guidelines set by the EPA and US Department of Energy.
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy designed to help us save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
In 1992 the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) introduced ENERGY STAR as a voluntary labeling program designed to identify and promote energy-efficient products to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Computers and monitors were the first labeled products. Through 1995, EPA expanded the label to additional office equipment products and residential heating and cooling equipment. In 1996, EPA partnered with the US Department of Energy for particular product categories. The ENERGY STAR label is now on major appliances, office equipment, lighting, home electronics, and more. EPA has also extended the label to cover new homes and commercial and industrial buildings.
Recently, energy prices have become a hot news topic and a major concern for consumers. ENERGY STAR provides energy saving solutions. ENERGY STAR is a trustworthy label on over 50 product categories (and thousands of models) for the home and office. These products deliver the same or better performance as comparable models, while using less energy. The result is reduced energy costs.
ENERGY STAR also provides easy-to-use home and building assessment tools so that you can identify ways to achieve greater home energy efficiency and savings.
Generations® Thermal Core Siding and Windows feature the ENERGY STAR label.
When correctly installed, Generations® Thermal Core Siding with the Fullback® Thermal Support System and Generations Insulated Vinyl Replacement Windows can help meet the performance guidelines of an ENERGY STAR qualified home.
