Kensington High Performance Products (HPP)
Don’t confuse Kensington Windows with Kensington HPP as they are not the same company and aren’t legally related. Kensington HPP manufactures high performance vinyl replacement windows and doors. They are very effective at blocking UV rays and heat energy.
Kensington HPP replacement windows are the 2017 Energy Star Most Efficient windows on the market with 99.5% UV Blockage, which is the light ray which heat travels on. That means your Michigan home will have an easier time keeping the heat in during winter and your woodwork and furnishings won’t dry out or fade from UV damage.
There’s nothing like knowing that your home is energy efficient and comfortable. High performance replacement windows can get you started, but it’s also a good idea to ensure you have enough insulation in the walls, attic, and any crawl spaces. You’ll want to be sure your roof isn’t leaking due to missing insulation or missing sealant around roof projections as well.
