The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is a non-profit organization that administers the only uniform, independent rating and labeling system for the energy performance of windows, doors and skylights. Our goal is to provide fair, accurate, and reliable energy performance ratings so that homeowners can compare different products and make informed product choices.
The National Fenestration Rating Council is calling students in the U.S. and Canada to submit an original short film demonstrating the different energy performance ratings that are found on the NFRC label (U-factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, Visible Transmittance, and Air Leakage).
