Kolbe's triple pane glass windows come standard with insulating glass and LoE coatings designed to achieve low U-factors. Kolbe says the Windquest EP vinyl windows and Ultra EP aluminum clad wood windows can achieve U-factors as low as 0.19 (approximately 1.00 in metric).

Window products can qualify for Energy Star based on their U-factor. The new Energy Star criteria for all Canadian climate zones went into effect Oct. 1, 2010. Internationally, Energy Star-qualified windows are tested and certified by an independent, accredited agency. U-factors for the four Canadian climate zones range from 0.21 to 0.32, expressed in metric units as 1.20-1.80.
