The Power of Glass
The glass system in your windows can make a substantial difference. For example, Mezzo Windows with triple-pane ClimaTech ThermD TG2 glass technology are 52% more energy-efficient than clear double-pane windows.
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), a nonprofit organization and authority on energy efficiency of all manufactured products in the US, has defined uniform standards and labeling requirements for windows and doors in order for help you, the consumer, choose the best product for your home.
Under NFRC’s Energy Star program, window products are independently tested, certified and labeled. The Energy Star program uses U-Factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient and Air Leakage to qualify products for certification.

U-Factor 0.22 – measures how well the window prevents heat from entering or escaping the home. Ratings generally fall between 0.2 and 1.25. Windows with a lower U-Factor provide better insulation. U-Factor is important wherever you live, but is a primary concern for homes in colder Northern climates.
SHGC 0.26 (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient) – measures how much heat from the sun is blocked. This number can range from 0 to 1 where windows with lower numbers reflect more heat. This is particularly important during the summer in hot Southern climates
Air Leakage (AL) 0.04 CFM cubic feet per minute – – measures how much outside air comes into the home through a closed window. Rates typically fall in a range between 0.1 and 0.3*. The lower the air leakage number, the lower the potential for draft through the window.
V (Visible Transmittance) 0.45 – measures how much light comes through the whole window. Ranging from 0 to 1, windows with higher numbers allow more light into the home.
C (Condensation Resistance) 69 – measures how well the window resists the formation of condensation on the inside of the window. CR is expressed as a number between 1 and 100. The higher the number, the better the window is able to resist condensation.
The EdgeForce™ low-profile frame and sash creates an expanded glass area while internal chambers increase structural integrity, rigidity and energy efficiency
CoreFX™ composite reinforcement helps reduce the transfer of energy while strengthening meeting rails and allowing for secure mounting of hardware
Defense-Tek™ end-of-throw cam shift locking action delivers increased strength and protection
Forecaster™ quickly directs water runoff, keeping the exterior of the window clean and attractive
The HP3™ telescoping sill dam delivers protection from air and water infiltration, increases structural stability and enhances beauty
Gatekeeper™ interlocking sash-to-sill technology delivers a unified wall of strength
The Ocular ™ screen bulb seal eliminates light penetration between the screen and frame and aids in easy screen installation and removal
A very high quality screen standard: the screen is made of heavy duty extruded aluminum and the spline is on the inside to keep it out of the sun.
Maximum Protection = Minimum Air Leakage
The Air Leakage (AL) Rating makes it easy to compare one window to the next. The lower the Air Leakage rating the less air will pass though the window unit. Mezzo Windows deliver superior protection with AL of only 0.04 CFM (cubic feet per minute) compared to the allowable air infiltration standard of 0.30 set by American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA.)
When you compare Mezzo Windows to other residential windows you will see why Mezzo windows are and excellent choice to protect your home from energy loss year-around.
