How BFRC energy rating labels work
BFRC assess the energy performance of windows and doors to give them a rating between A++ and E. Genuine BFRC rated products are labelled with a small official sticker on the inside of the frame and often a large rainbow label on the surface of the window or door: clear, visible proof that they will perform as promised.
But what does the label actually mean?
- The BFRC energy rating label looks very similar to other rating schemes which you may have seen on a range of products, from domestic goods such as washing machines and dishwashers to car tyres.
- The bandings on the BFRC label are the result of a complex calculation which takes into account a number of factors including heat loss, solar gain and air leakage.
- An 'A' rated window means that there is theoretically no energy lost through the window. The lower down the window energy rating label you go, the less energy efficient the windows and doors start to become, and the thermal loss will be greater.
- What was once a ‘nice to have’ in heat retention and lowering energy bills per month has now become a legal requirement. Windows are now required to have a Window Energy Rating (WER) of B and above, and doors are now required to have a DER of C and above.
