NFRC’s 30 Years Started with Humble Beginnings

Posted By By Deb Callahan, Thursday, June 27, 2019

Thirty-years ago today, a small group of fenestration professionals met in a hotel to discuss the need for an independent organization to produce fair, accurate and credible energy-efficiency ratings for windows, doors and skylights.

Since that day in June 1989, the National Fenestration Rating Council has paved the way for fenestration products to save consumers money and make their homes and offices more comfortable. NFRC’s ratings and the work of its members address the billions of dollars annually lost from inefficient windows.

As we celebrate the great people who laid the foundation for exemplary work, we still have more to do. Market demand for energy efficiency in buildings is rising, and policymakers around the country are pushing for stricter green building mandates. But our members and staff are poised to meet these challenges.

We’re proud to serve NFRC’s 800 manufacturers and program participants whose innovations make homes and offices more efficient. And consumers get the peace of mind knowing that NFRC-certified windows, doors and skylights are backed by our fair, accurate and credible ratings and research.

Our ratings will always be at the forefront. However, we realize that green buildings need energy-efficient fenestration products. We want to educate and inform the public and empower industry stakeholders to create more comfortable spaces with NFRC-certified products.
