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 been given this distinction,
which recognizes the company’s continuing commitment
to the advancement 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 design 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 strong
focus on environmental stewardship and giving
consumers energy-efficient options 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 comfort without negatively impacting
the environment. Here are three reasons to stop
by our Raleigh 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 the industry requirement for air infiltration.
- We have 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 protect the transfer of heat and blocks ultraviolet
rays that could damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.
Your windows and doors have a bigger
effect 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 simply 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 money. If you are interested in learning more about your choices for
replacement windows or doors, drop by our showroom in
Raleigh or schedule an appointment online.
