Soft-Lite LLC is proud to announce that most of its energy-efficient windows have been recognized as ENERGY STAR Most Efficient Products. The brand-new ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2013 designation recognizes the most efficient products among those that qualify for the ENERGY STAR. Double-hung, sliding and picture windows from every one of Soft-Lite's product lines -- including Barrington, Bainbridge, Pro, Classic, Imperial LS and Elements -- have earned the Most Efficient designation with various high-performance, insulated glass systems.
