Windows Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) logo

WERS rates the energy impact of windows in housing anywhere in Australia.The Window Energy Rating Scheme enables windows to be rated and labelled for their annual energy impact on a whole house, in any climate of Australia.Rated windows carry a label which certifies that the window has been rated by the Australian Window Association. The window's cooling and heating performance is rated separately on a scale of 0 to 10 stars - the more stars, the better. These stars indicate the effect the window will have on the energy performance of the whole house.
