Vinyl Window Designs wins Energy Star award

September 2, 2015  By Vinyl Window Designs

For almost 30 years, Vinyl Window Designs (VWD) has been a leader in the development and promotion of high-efficiency window products, utilizing foam insulation, triple glazing, warm edge spacers, and offering a variety of low-E models. One of the few window manufacturers in North America to have a research and development department, VWD continually works at improving existing products and developing new ones. Available across Canada through VWD’s dealers, flagship distributors and directly from the company, virtually every high efficiency window sold for a residential property is Energy Star certified, including nine products that now meet the 2014 Most Efficient specification.

VWD’s commitment to Energy Star is apparent in its prevalent use of the Energy Star symbol and messaging on its website and in information materials. In some cases, VWD uses a tagline alongside the Energy Star Most Efficient symbol to highlight the window’s features ­and “triple glazed, double low-E and gas filled.” In particular, the company focusses its efforts on cooperative advertising with its dealer partners. By investing significant effort and dollars in joint marketing materials and technical factsheets aimed at educating the homeowner on the benefits of purchasing Energy Star certified windows, VWD provides its dealers with useful information that makes selling VWD’s Energy Star products easy and profitable. In order to respond to the increased requests for technical information, all VWD customer service and sales staff receive training about Energy Star initiatives, including Most Efficient.

Vinyl Window Designs has received five Energy Star awards: Promoter of the Year ­Energy Star Most Efficient (2014, 2015); Sustained Excellence (2014); Advocate of the Year – Specific Product (2012); and Manufacturer of the Year – Specific Product (2006).
