Below are four common ratings that are provided for windows certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC):
- U-Factor – A measure of the rate of heat flow through a window. A lower U-Factor indicates a higher performing window that can help reduce heating and cooling costs.
- Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) – The amount of solar radiation allowed to pass through a window. The lower the number, the less solar heat gain and UV rays the window permits to enter.
- Visible Light Transmittance (VT) – Ranging from 0 – 1, visible transmittance is a measure of how much light passes through the window. The higher the number, the more light that can pass through.
- Condensation Rating (CR) – CR measures how well a window resists the formation of condensation on the inside surface. CR is expressed as a number between 1 – 100.The higher the number, the better a product is able to resist condensation.
