Streetsboro, OH (PRWEB) November 07, 2014
Soft-Lite Windows is proud to partner with the American Window & Door Institute to ensure that the company complies with the new ENERGY STAR standards for 2015. Soft-Lite has contracted to use AWDI's WIXSYS Portal Solution to offer its dealers a comprehensive library of on-line installation instructions -- which will be required for all ENERGY STAR labeled windows and doors, beginning January 1, 2015. This will give Soft-Lite dealers access to a unique web site portal that offers 40 fully illustrated sections of installation instructions.
D&R International, who facilitates the ENERGY STAR program, just finished a complete review of all the segments and matched them to the eight requirements of the new ENERGY STAR Version 6 mandate. According to AWDI, D&R concluded "…that all of the required elements are present when the entirety of the documents are considered." This analysis confirmed that the WIXSYS Portal will ensure full compliance.
"Soft-Lite is a dedicated ENERGY STAR partner, and we've been actively working with the EPA on the new ENERGY STAR criteria for windows and doors," said Tyson Schwartz, Soft-Lite Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "We have always worked hard to ensure that our windows and doors meet the required performance criteria to be ENERGY STAR labeled. By partnering with AWDI, Soft-Lite is being proactive and preparing for the 2015 ENERGY STAR criteria to take effect -- by having its new library of installation instructions ready to go well in advance. We want to do everything we can to support ENERGY STAR, help protect the environment and, at the same time, position ourselves at the front of the pack."
