Thermal Performance - NFRC® / Energy Star® Information

Arcadia Custom' windows meet stringent energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. These guidelines are based on the heat gain and loss of each product in various regions of the country. See the following charts for windows that are ENERGY STAR (2010) qualified.

Arcadia Custom windows were evaluated in full compliance with NFRC (National Fenestration Rating Council)® requirements to the standards listed below.
