  • 19. Is your solution the best option for the customer?
  • 20. Why Price/Budget? Value always trumps price Customers usually have an idea of budget range Financing = easier pill to swallow
  • 21. Buying Behavior $$$ $$ $ What % choose B? A B C
  • 22. 1. The most expensive (dream) option 2. Your target option 3. Their budget option Position Yourself $$$ $$ $
  • 23. Option 1 – “Dream Option” “If money was no object” Bay/bow window Wood grain Hardware upgrade French Door vs. Patio Door Energy Efficient glass upgrade If you don’t present it they cannot choose it – and some will!
  • 24. Option 2 – “Target Option” • Meets needs • Exceeds budget 10-30% • “Best bang for the buck” Value always trumps price Done right, this is where most of your customers will end up
  • 25. Option 3 – “Budget Option” At least .01 below budget! • Respect • Effort • Do it right
  • 26. Price Summary • The dream option can increase your average order value significantly. • Your target option is usually where you will land. • The budget option shows the customer the respect they expect from a consultant with good character. • Include a financing option/monthly payment. Presenting three options and monthly financed payments will significantly increase your closing percentage
  • 27. What’s your take? Are these the criteria you need?

  • 45. 50
  • 46. Understanding and Up-selling glass packages “More than meets the eye”
  • 47. Energy Efficiency Window performance is made up of multiple factors. A few to consider; • U-factor (or R-value) • SHGC • VT • Air Infiltration
  • 48. U-Factor According to Wikipedia, U-factor is described as; “The U-factor (sometimes incorrectly referred to as "U-value"), is the overall heat transfer coefficient that describes how well a building element conducts heat. It measures the rate of heat transfer through a building element over a given area under standardized conditions. The usual standard is at a temperature gradient of 24 °C, at 50% humidity with no wind[6] (a smaller U- value is better at reducing heat transfer).”
  • 49. U-Factor • U-factor is how well the window reduces heat transfer through the materials it is made from. • This can also be summarized by using the term conductivity. • Windows with a smaller U-factor rating conduct less heat.
  • 50. SHGC According to Wikipedia, SHGC is described as; "Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)" is used in the United States and most commonly refers to the solar energy transmittance of a window or door as a whole, factoring in the glass, frame material (wood, aluminum, etc.), sash (if present), divided lite bars (if present) and screens (if present).”
  • 51. SHGC • SHGC refers to how much the window allows solar energy transmittance through the window. • SHGC refers to the increase in temperature in a space that results from solar radiation. The amount of solar gain increases with the strength of the sun, and with the ability of any intervening material to transmit or resist the radiation. • Low E is the largest contributing factor to SHGC rating improvements
  • 52. SHGC The NFRC says, What is Solar Heat Gain? The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, also know as SHGC, measures the rate of heat gain through a product. Therefore, the lower the SHGC, the lower the amount of solar heat gain. In hot climates where air- conditioning bills are a major concern, choosing windows with lower SHGC will reduce the amount of heat that comes in from the outside.
  • 53. Visible Transmittance • Visible Transmittance (VT) measures how much light comes through a product. • VT is expressed as a number between 0 and 1. The higher the VT, the higher the potential for daylighting.
  • 54. Air Infiltration ratings • Beginning in 2014, Energy Star will require published testing to be included on the NFRC sticker • Currently reporting of these test results are optional • Our reporting will state Simonton will state: ≤ .3
  • 55. Air Infiltration ratings What does an air infiltration rate mean? Air leakage is measured by physical testing of a standard sized window. The test window is installed on a large wall. On one side, a vacuum is of 75 pascals (1.57 psf) is applied. This corresponds to approximately a 25 mph wind blowing perpendicularly to the window. Flow meters measure the rate of air leakage. This is divided by the total window area to get a reading (in the U.S) in cfm/ft2 to the nearest tenth (i.e., a test value of 0.17 would be given a rating of 0.2). The best possible rating by the NFRC is 0.1, as they will not round to 0.
  • 56. Air Infiltration ratings Does air infiltration rating affect heat bills? If a manufacturer elects to have its product tested, it cannot have more than 0.3 cfm/ft2 of air leakage. If this maximum is met, the energy loss through air leakage is likely considerably less than that through heat loss (ASHRAE 2005 Fundamentals, P. 31.55). Nonetheless, air infiltration has a major effect on perceived performance of the window. Even at the passing value of 0.3, disturbing drafts may be felt.
  • 57. Air Infiltration ratings How to get the most out of air infiltration – Remember, style is the best way to eliminate air infiltration • PW, CSMT, DH, Slider – Remember that more weather stripping = more resistance – 6500 > 6200 > ClearValue
  • 58. Energy Efficiency Overview The NFRC has created a document to better understand energy efficiency. It can be found at ents/ReplacementWindows. pdf
