Choosing Energy Star Qualified Windows & Doors

If you are replacing windows or exterior doors as part of a home improvement project, choose Energy Star qualified models to save energy and money, increase the comfort of your home, and protect your valuable possessions from sun damage. Also look for Energy Star qualified skylights.
