Energy Efficient Replacement Windows
Champion has been concerned about energy savings long before it went Hollywood. Each replacement window design update or update in the manufacturing process is designed to make replacement our windows more energy efficient and to save the homeowner more money.
We do not believe in a good/better/best window with varying enegy ratings, but instead manufacture one window- the best performing energy efficient replacement window you can have at factory direct savings. Champion stays on the cutting edge of technology and partners with the third party groups that help us continue to offer a window with maximum energy saving performance.
NFRC products are tested and certified by an independent testing agency according to NFRC standards. The NFRC aims to provide information the consumer can easily compare the thermal energy efficiency of products. Like the window sticker on a new car that allows you to compare the car’s mpg performance in the city and on the highway, the NFRC window label allows the consumer to compare window performance in the summer and winter. Champion Window is a member of the NFRC. For more information, visit www.nfrc.org.
AAMA offers air infiltration/water infiltration/structural testing. Champion Windows have been AAMA tested and all ratings exceed the minimum performance requirements established by AAMA. Because Champion Windows have been AAMA tested and have been NFRC certified (thermal rating), we are permitted to permanently affix an AAMA GOLD LABEL to our windows when they leave the factory.
