Kensington HPP’s Quantum Window is recognized by Window and Door Magazine in their October/November 2016 Product Showcase for Energy Efficient Options
The latest window and door options to serve the energy-aware buyer
There is no doubt that consumer interest in energy efficiency has been on an upward trajectory in the last few decades. In fact, one recent report by Global Market Insights Inc. projects the market for energy-efficient windows in the U.S. looks to exceed $15 billion by 2024. Some of the credit, at least in part, has to go to Energy Star initiatives that started in the early 1990s to increase consumer awareness about the energy efficiency of everyday products.
But the fenestration industry has long been aware that movement toward more responsible construction goes far beyond Energy Star initiatives. Many manufacturers have, in turn, incorporated advanced energy technology into their windows and doors to speak to this ever-growing market of energy-conscious consumers.
What follows is the latest collection of such products, with special attention to the energy-efficient attributes of each to help dealers bring the right options to their customers.
