The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) has introduced a new video that educates homeowners about the benefits of its energy-performance ratings for windows, doors, and skylights. The short video adopts the homeowner’s perspective. By explaining the NFRC label as a tool to identify the fenestration products that can help make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient, it empowers them to make a more-educated purchasing decision. The video will also help position the NFRC as a homeowner advocate and clarify that the organization ultimately serves the public.
The NFRC created the video after research showed that homeowners benefit from knowing that the NFRC ensures windows, doors, and skylights are tested properly, rather than by understanding how the organization’s rating, labeling, and certification program works. Given its commitment to serving the public and developing partnerships in the green building community, the NFRC will disseminate the video to its members, retailers, and various allied organizations, encouraging them to post it on their websites.
The NFRC is a nonprofit organization that administers a voluntary, uniform rating, labeling, and certification system for the energy performance of windows, doors, curtain walls, skylights, and other fenestration products. Its members include manufacturers, suppliers, utilities, consumer groups, representatives from the building and code industries, scientific and educational organizations, and government agencies.
