Know Your Zone
Canada is divided into three climate zones (1, 2, and 3). Zone 1 is the warmest and 3 is the coldest. Consumers should know their climate zone and ask for products that are certified for it. The climate zone for which a window, door or skylight is certified ENERGY STAR will be shown on a label on the product and in sales literature.
Many windows, doors and skylights are certified for more than one zone. You may save even more on energy costs by buying a product certified for a colder zone than where you live.
If you live at a significantly higher elevation than the surrounding area, look for a product rated for a zone at least one level colder. This applies especially to areas in southern and central British Columbia where energy efficiency levels are based on major urban centres located in valleys.
