3D®and 3D MAX® provide increased levels of energy efficiency for builders

LAS VEGAS (January 20, 2009) - Milgard Windows & Doors introduces two new energy efficiency package upgrades on select vinyl and fiberglass lines. The 3D and 3D MAX energy package options provide builders high quality, environmentally responsible windows and doors for new construction and remodeling projects. The 3D name represents the three dimensions of a Milgard window - the overall design, the frame material and the glazing unit. Milgard formulated the packages to deliver energy efficient solutions, where and when it is needed, by customizing the packages for specific climate regions.

By starting with an ENERGY STAR® qualified window and door, builders can be assured they have chosen an energy efficient product. The new 3D and 3D MAX package options provide builders better and best scenarios to meet the demand for increased energy efficiency. The 3D package offers a window or door that is at least 10 percent more energy efficient than ENERGY STAR qualified models, while the 3D MAX package provides up to 26 percent more energy efficiency, depending on the series chosen.

"Energy efficiency is on the minds of consumers, and they are actively seeking housing solutions such as appliances, lighting and of course windows and doors that are both environmentally sound and perform to that meet standards like ENERGY STAR," said Maureen Faccia, Director of Marketing for Milgard. “By providing the 3D and 3D MAX energy efficiency options, we are making it easy for builders and contractors to market packages that meet clearly defined efficiency levels, as well as meet the demand of consumers.”

Milgard ensures builders that all solar and thermal performance requirements are being met, and in the case of 3D MAX, the ultimate in energy efficiency, helping builders achieve the maximum possible LEED points.

Regional Variations and Value-Added Benefits Included

Milgard's regional manufacturing locations help deliver quick turnaround and provide customized packages to meet energy efficiency standards based on different climate zones around the country. With Milgard and a Milgard Certified Dealer, most windows can be manufactured and installed in two weeks or less.

"We manufacture windows and doors to the same high standard but different efficiency requirements for specific geographic regions," Faccia said. "Builders benefit from our forward thinking. The development is extensive, but the final product is two simple packages for builders to choose from."

The packages provide value beyond energy efficiency, such as helping homes maintain comfort throughout all seasons, protecting furniture from damaging UV rays and can help provide improved sound insulation depending on the package chosen.
