At Kolbe, energy efficiency is built into our windows and doors as standard. In fact, we offer more than 20,000 products that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® qualifications in both the United States and Canada.
Kolbe uses the latest innovations in LoE technologies in various combinations, so we are able to offer glass that is best suited to any climate. These elements provide great thermal performance as well as excellent UV protection. We also offer LoE glass coatings that help minimize solar heat gain in very warm climates. For even better energy performance, numerous products are available with triple pane glass.
Jesse Lizer, AIA, relied on window sizes, glass types and placement to achieve energy efficiency in this home.
The builder specified Kolbe products both for their aesthetic match and their energy efficiency track record. The builder noted, "...the superior ratings of Kolbe's products means homeowners can enjoy the views without thinking that their dollars are flying out the windows – or the doors."

Ultra Series windows and doors were chosen for this adobe home. LoE²-340 solar control glass has reflective solar properties that helps manage unwanted heat gain, tone down the glare and preserve the clarity of view.
Several of Kolbe's products have met the most rigorous standards set by ENERGY STAR. For this reason, they have been designated as among ENERGY STAR's Most Efficient for 2017.
This lake home project on Pearl Lake near Traverse City, Michigan showcases 82 Kolbe-crafted windows & doors. Our Ultra Series products helped this project earn a Michigan ENERGY STAR grant.
Kolbe also offers a wide range of VistaLuxe® Collection and Ultra Series windows and doors that have been verified by the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS). Our range of certified products means that American-made windows and doors are available from one manufacturer.
Finally, for windows and doors to provide optimal energy efficiency, they must be flashed, caulked and sealed properly at the time of installation. All of our products are shipped with detailed installation instructions, which emphasize the importance of these final steps. Once properly installed, the energy efficient technology built into Kolbe products will further ensure your design project provides all the benefits of a healthy and comfortable living or working environment.
