This past spring, the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized Pella
with its 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year-Sustained Excellence Award. This
is the second time Pella has earned this distinction,
which notes the company’s continuing commitment
to the development and promotion of energy-efficient
products and the education of consumers on conservation issues.
One of the projects that
helped gain the Sustained Excellence Award was the
research into the creation of a highly insulating
residential window with innovative automatic shading in an
exclusive partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.
Pella Windows and Doors has a clear
focus on environmental stewardship and giving
consumers energy-efficient possibilities for new or
replacement windows and doors. There are a lot of steps
taken in the development and design process to help you live in a
comfortable home without hurting
the environment. Here are a couple reasons to come
by our Sunset Hills showroom when you’re in the
market for replacement windows and doors.
- The Architect Series® wood casement
windows, for example, are generally six times tighter than what’s required by the industry for air infiltration.
- We offer Designer Series
windows and patio doors with triple-pane glass as well as between the
glass blinds or shades.
- Our Low-E insulating glass with argon1
helps prevent the transfer of heat and blocks ultraviolet
rays that can damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.
Your windows and doors have a bigger
impact on your energy usage and home comfort than you might
think. According to energystar.gov2,
a normal home can save $101 to $538
per year on energy costs by just interchanging
single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also reduces
your home’s carbon footprint.
At Pella Windows and Doors, you don’t
need to sacrifice style or comfort to save a few
bucks. If you are interested in learning more about your options for
replacement windows or doors, drop by our showroom in
Sunset Hills or schedule an appointment online.
