The AERC Rating and Certification Process

AERC’s Energy Improvement rating and certification program, developed with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), has been designed to offer independent and accurate information about the energy performance of window attachment products.

Together, our many program stakeholders work to ensure that the information on the AERC Energy Improvement label is accurate, reliable and consistent. Each product that features the AERC Energy Improvement label has been measured according to stringent standards and have been reviewed and certified by AERC.
