We often talk about energy-ef- cient window and door products helping the consumer — the end user — but they have great value for trade profes- sionals, too. Today's homeowners are concerned with their home's energy efciency and want to be assured they are buying products that allow them to make their home more energy efcient. We've found that when a remodeler can use a product that is highly energy efcient, operates easily and fts the homeowner's design needs they have a happier client and a smooth project. What's the next advancement in the energy-efcient window market? New glazing coats that help optimize perfor- mance for various climates and enable window and door manufacturers to achieve changing ener- gy codes will continue to hit the market. Interior and exterior shades, such as Marvin's integrated interior shades and automated exterior shade sys- tem, will continue to evolve and ofer comfort and solar control. Materials and design will evolve to optimize thermal performance, beyond glazing and shades. One example is our Next Generation Ultimate Double Hung with an auto-lock feature, making sure the top and bottom sashes are locked when not in use and prevents sash sag (and the unwanted energy loss that results).

We've recessed the sash on the casement, changed how the glass sits in the sash, added more wood to the frame and given an engineering overhaul to the sills. Plus, we've updated the aesthetics and exploded the options to ensure a perfect ft in any home.
