I did some checking on Simonton- online nfrc numbers say it will pass but when I go to order on the Simonton program the computer does the calculations and it doesn't pass. Sculpted grids are changing the numbers too.

These do not pass 0.30 u factor or 0.30 shgc for Simonton
7500 Series(West Coast)
    Double Hung with low366, argon, superspacer
    French Slider any size with low366, argon, superspacer
    Regular Slider 95'x 79.5" or larger with sculpted grids low366, argon and superspacer

New Simonton Verona Vinyl Window Series DO NOT PASS

Amerimax Vinyl Windows - California Woodland Plant

All Lines pass (argon and low366 added) 0.30 u factor and 0.30 shgc except:
    Single Hung
    French Slider any size

As a dealer we are discounting Double Hung so we don't lose business.

Most of the Simonton 5500 pass if upgraded to Super Spacer and either 7/8" or 1" glass.


How can you get 7/8" or 1" glass? I assume you mean *all* panes added up? I have only heard of 1/4 inch glass as the thickest, so even if you mean a triple pane, that still would not reach 1 inch.

Energy Star has finally updated their website and now has the new requirements for 2009/2010 Tax Credits for windows and doors. Old requirements don't mean anything.

the window world product doesn't pass but clear choice is only using the silverline product on the west coast and Canada. on the east coast clear choice is using a another product that does pass. this is a awesome rebate hope is will get people to start buying windows and doors again.
