TORONTO, June 4, 2024

JELD-WEN of Canada, part of JELD-WEN Holding, Inc., has once again been named the ENERGY STAR® Manufacturer of the Year in the Fenestration Products category for 2024. The ENERGY STAR Canada Awards recognize organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy achievements.

As a twelve-time ENERGY STAR Canada Award Winner, JELD-WEN of Canada is proud to continue to lead the way in energy efficiency. The ENERGY STAR program is internationally recognized, and the symbol is known by consumers as a trusted mark for high-efficiency products. JELD-WEN of Canada has been a participant in ENERGY STAR Canada since 2003 and continually shows a strong commitment to energy efficiency.

With its continued dedication, JELD-WEN of Canada successfully launched its JWC8500 series window throughout a prosperous 2023 year. Meticulously engineered to exceed customer expectations, this window is like no other and JELD-WEN of Canada has continued to innovate, maintaining both finesse and function, by introducing the timely deployment of the JWC8500 hybrid as an addition to the JWC8500 window series in 2024. This new JWC8500 hybrid option exceeds performance, offering an aluminum-clad exterior finish with an exquisite selection of colours to choose from. With a 26% slimmer frame maximizing the glass area and capable of reaching a U-factor of 0.82 W/m²·C to meet Canada's 2030 aspirational energy efficiency window target, exceeding performance in all regions of Canada, the JWC8500 series windows are designed to significantly reduce energy costs, while ensuring year-round comfort for Canadians. These high-performance windows not only help in reducing the carbon footprint but also lower energy bills by maintaining consistent indoor temperatures, thus enhancing overall comfort.

JELD-WEN of Canada has an established portfolio of demonstrated loyalty to energy efficiency through the evolution of its education campaign in 2021, by adding calculators for energy efficiency, to inform consumers on the benefits of installing ENERGY STAR certified windows. Likewise, JELD-WEN continued its pledge as an energy efficient leader in 2022 by aggregating Canadian window rebate programs through its “Keep Outside Out” awareness campaign designed to market its specialized Northern Tri-Pane Collection™ windows across Canada. The Energy Rebate Program for Windows is designed to encourage homeowners and businesses to upgrade to energy-efficient windows, contributing to significant energy savings and environmental conservation. By participating in this program, eligible entities can receive substantial rebates, making the transition to greener alternatives more accessible and cost-effective.

JELD-WEN of Canada is a leading manufacturer of interior and exterior windows and doors and is committed to continuously developing high-performing, energy efficient products for the Canadian consumer. JELD-WEN products that bear the ENERGY STAR symbol are designed to endure the test of time.
