Milgard® Introduces New Energy Calculator to Help Professionals Meet Project Requirements

Tacoma, Wash. (June 13, 2014)— A new energy calculator is now available on the Milgard Professional Resources webpage to help architects and contractors select windows and doors.

The Milgard energy calculator is designed to provide a quick and easy way to help look up windows and doors that can meet local energy codes and project requirements. The tool automatically determines which Milgard® window or patio door best fit the project need from self-select filter options such as ENERGY STAR® zone, U-Factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) and Visible Transmittance (VT). In addition, the energy calculator helps make selections based on material, operating style, glass type, grids and spacer type.

Milgard designed the energy calculator based on feedback from industry professionals seeking a reference tool to help them meet ever increasing state-wide and local energy codes. To view the new tool, please visit Milgard’s Professional Resources webpage also features installation instruction resources, CAD drawings and AIA, ASID and USGBC approved continuing education courses.
