The BFRC energy rating scale

The BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council) uses a rigorous rating scheme to ensure that homeowners know how energy efficient the windows and doors that they are buying actually are. In the scale, products are placed on an alphabetical range of energy efficiency, from the highest performing, A standard, to the lowest performing, E standard. The most energy efficient windows are rated between A-C. Buying a product rated between these standards will ensure that your home has the potential to become amazingly energy efficient.
