The procedures for testing, conducted and certified by the NFRC
, provide the customers with energy performance numbers that can be trusted.
The calorimeter was developed, characterized, and calibrated based on NFRC
USA has established the NFRC
to provide refrigeration solutions on a global scale.

The thermal performances (SHGC, U-factor) are calculated at the NFRC
Ploughcroft also has an NVQ solar roofing training centre and has worked with the National Federation of Roofing Contractors to develop and deliver the NFRC
solar roofing course, which has been delivered to more than 150 companies.
labels detail independent verification of product performance and allow homeowners, architects and builders to compare windows' energy ratings.
is a unique industry, government public interest group collaboration developing and implementing a nationwide system for rating and labeling the thermal performance of all types of windows, doors, skylights, and other fenestration products.
To compare windows, read the NFRC
(National Fenestration Rating Council) energy-ratings label that's pasted on most units (photo right).
As one example, products certified by NFRC
can display labels that attest to insulation value, visible transmittance, or solar heat gain.
labels are also used on door and skylight products that are part of the EPA's Energy Star program.
The third requirement of the NFRC
test is that the applicant's interest must be substantially affected by the disposition of the action.
