Energy Star

Products may comply for Canada’s Energy

Star program based on two compliance

paths: either their U-factor total, or their

Energy Rating (ER). The Energy Rating is

based on a product’s overall performance

based on three criteria: (1) solar heat gain,

(2) heat loss through the frame, spacer and glass, and (3)

air leakage loss. The higher the ER number, the better the

product’s thermal performance.

The U-factor and ER criteria for Canada’s four climate zones is

shown in the charts provided. For more detailed information

about their Energy Rating system and Kolbe products that

qualify for Canada’s Energy Star Program, visit their

website at
