ENERGY STAR Window Criteria

  • Windows must have NFRC ratings that meet strict energy guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), which include a U-Factor (which rates how well the window insulates) of less than or equal to 0.32 and a SHGC rating (which rates how well the product blocks heat from the sun) of less than or equal to 0.40

Customer Testimonial

“The entire company from the owner down to the crew who did the installation were top notch. The crew discovered a lot of rotten wood in the frame work, which they replaced without issue. The enlarged window turned out great, the sliders work great, and all of the windows and exterior framing/wrapping/sealing were done perfectly. I am extremely happy with the work that was done and had a great experience during the whole process. I would recommend Potomac View Energy to anyone looking to have windows or doors replaced.”
