Alside Energy Star Most Efficient 2013 Recognition

Alside Windows Earn ENERGY STAR’s Most Efficient 2013 Designation

Four Associated Materials window brands are recognized for meeting stringent energy efficiency guidelines. 


CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio —April 23, 2013— Four window brands produced by Associated Materials Inc., parent company of Alside, have earned recognition in ENERGY STAR’s Most Efficient 2013 program for “demonstrating efficiency performance that is exceptional, inspirational or leading edge and consistent with the interests of environmentally motivated consumers,” according to the ENERGY STAR program criteria.

The AMI recognized windows, which include several styles within the Alside, Gentek, Revere and Preservation brands, were identified for meeting rigorous ENERGY STAR criteria, including achieving highly efficient U-Factor and SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient) performance in all four U.S. climate zones. Windows with a lower U-Factor provide increased resistance to heat loss during winter months; a lower SHGC reduces solar heat penetration in the summer to conserve air-conditioning usage. The combination of precision manufacturing and advanced insulating components in the windows, such as high-performance specialty glass systems, helps to lower energy use year-round.

“Alside is extremely proud to have such a large representation of our products qualify as most efficient status,” said Dana Schindler, Vice President of Marketing. “Homeowners want windows that are attractive, durable and easy to maintain, but also highly efficient when it comes to energy performance. No matter where you’re located, Alside has a window designed to provide superior protection as well as aesthetic appeal.”
