Heat Loss Factor (U Factor)
The U factor represents the overall heat loss rate. The lower the U factor, the slower the air transfers from a warm area to a cold area. The U.S. Department of Energy and Natural Resources Canada have defined climatic zones and assigned to them required performance values for window products.
REGIONAL windows have a low enough U factor to be efficient in harsh conditions (D type climatic zones).
