NATIONAL VINYL LLC LAUNCHES PREMIUM R-5 WINDOW for DOE High Efficiency Windows Volume Purchase Program

On May 27th the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the launch of the Highly-Insulating R-5 Windows and Low-e Storm Windows Volume Purchase Program, part of a multi-year integrated strategy to transform the market for high efficiency windows. Scott Channell, National Vinyl’s GM attended the meeting at the NAHB National Headquarters in Washington D.C. "The Department of Energy has played a key role in rapidly advancing window technology in the past few years. This program will help move these technologies into the marketplace, providing significant energy savings to homes and businesses across the country," said Roland Risser, DOE's Building Technologies Program Manager. "This initiative will help drive demand and increase the number of offerings available to builders and project developers."

The program includes both Highly-Insulating R-5 (U value 0.2) Windows and Low-e Storm Windows. When replacing windows or building a new building, R-5 Windows can reduce heat loss through the window by 30 to 40% compared to a typical R-3 window available today. The savings for R-5 windows are a significant improvement over products available today.

Volume purchasers of windows, including government agencies, builders, energy retrofitters, renovators, and weatherization providers, will gain online access to window sellers whose products are certified to meet the High-Insulation R-5 and Low-e Storm Windows specification. For more information, visit the Highly-Insulating Windows and Low-e Storm Windows Volume Purchase Program Web site.

National Vinyl LLC of Chicopee, MA is one of only 30+ suppliers meeting all program requirements and is currently listed on the DOE Web site as ready to sell window products that meet the Highly-Insulating R-5 specifications. “National Vinyl is very excited about this new program. Being based in New England, we know how important energy efficiency is and we are proud to manufacture products that can be a part of this program, ” comments Channell. National Vinyl services the entire northeastern United States.

The May 27th launch event was co-hosted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and included participation from a broad spectrum of building industry stakeholders, including NAHB, American Architectural Manufacturers Association, the Alliance to Save Energy, Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County, Illinois (CEDA), and Habitat for Humanity.
