This past spring, the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded Pella
with its 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year-Sustained Excellence Award. This
is the second time Pella has been given this distinction,
which recognizes the company’s continuing dedication
to the creation and promotion of energy-efficient
products and the education of consumers on conservation issues.
One of the projects that
helped us earn the Sustained Excellence Award was the
research into the creation of a highly insulating
residential window with smart automatic shading in an
exclusive partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.
Pella Windows and Doors has a clear
focus on environmental stewardship and offering
consumers energy-efficient possibilities for new or
replacement windows and doors. There are many steps
taken in the development and design process to help you live in a
comfortable home without damaging
the environment. Here are a couple reasons to stop
by our Minneapolis 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
the industry requires 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 inhibit the transfer of heat and blocks ultraviolet
rays that may damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.
Your windows and doors have a bigger
influence on your energy usage and home comfort than you might have thought. According to energystar.gov2,
a standard home is able to save $101 to $538
per year on energy costs by solely exchanging
single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also lowers
your home’s carbon footprint.
At Pella Windows and Doors, you don’t
need to give up style or comfort to save a few
bucks. If you are interested in hearing more about your possibilities for
replacement windows or doors, visit our showroom in
Minneapolis or schedule an appointment online.
