What are the most important factors that a building professional should consider for regarding windows, doors, and skylights for ECBC compliance?

The SHGC and U-factor ratings are the most important items to verify during inspections. Building professionals should verify that the ratings of the installed windows, doors, and skylights meet or exceed the ratings specified on the plans. It is also important to verify that the same window area has been installed as the area shown on the plans and that the glass orientation on the plans and building are consistent.
