Selecting ENERGY STAR Compliant Door Glass
Dec. 27, 2016 | by Keith Juhola
The Environmental Protection Agency founded its voluntary ENERGY STAR program in 1992 to label computers and monitors, and then office equipment, appliances and lighting as energy-efficient. The ENERGY STAR rating is earned by products that save energy and protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Today, new homes and industrial buildings can qualify to be ENERGY STAR certified.
ODL has met all qualifications and standards to be a registered ENERGY STAR partner. Doors and door glass save energy together, not independently, so it’s important to choose ENERGY STAR ratings on both products. Program criteria were updated by the EPA in January 2015.
Products within ODL’s selection of Decorative Door Glass are engineered with ENERGY STAR requirements based on glass size, assembly materials and combined energy efficiency with specific doors, to meet energy codes and compliance for all four climate zones in the USA.
