The Talk

While most of the population will spend this week and next finalizing Thanksgiving menus and plans—and trying not to get too far ahead of this holiday by focusing on next month’s festivities—we are already entrenched in the New Year, planning the January/February issue.

As part of our coverage, we’ll continue the discussion on Energy Star 6.0 that Rich Walker started in his last column. Window & Door will take a look at the realities and results of the new labeling guidelines to keep you up-to-date.

In speaking with both manufacturers and dealers on the subject, consensus so far is that the industry as a whole is not only well prepared for the new criteria, but anticipates that it will have a positive impact on their business.

Does that ring true for your business? How do you view this update will affect you? What, if any, challenges do the new Energy Star criteria present your company? I’d love to get your thoughts in my inbox: please email me with your perspective. Or, leave a comment when you weigh in on this week’s poll.
