Trinity Exteriors installs one of the highest Energy Star-qualified windows found on the market today. Energy Star is a government program designed to help owners choose products that will save them money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It’s the window’s U-factor (the rate of heat loss) that determines the window's energy efficiency and whether it qualifies for Energy Star certification. On average, the windows we install have a .27 rating, which is below the required .30, and with a slight upgrade to triple pane, the rating increases with an even lower U-factor of .22.
While energy efficiency and reducing carbon footprint are significant factors, homeowners largely look for beauty and functionality with their windows. A range of interior colors (White and Beige as well as laminate wood grains in White, Rich Maple, Light Oak, Dark Oak, Foxwood and Cherry) and exterior options (White and Beige as well as special finishes in Architectural Bronze, Hudson Khaki, Desert Clay, English Red, Forest Green, American Terra and Castle Gray) with custom hardwood means these windows look beautiful and work with your personal style and design.
