In order to qualify for the Energy Star Label, the windows must be independently tested and certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) to meet specific energy-efficiency standards which are set by the EPA.
The parts of the windows which are examined during the rating process include the number of panes in the replacement windows, the type of glass used, the type of framing, whether there is a spacer, and the gas used to fill the spaces between window panes.
