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 received this distinction,
which notes 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 advanced automatic shading in an
exclusive partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.
Pella Windows and Doors has a dedicated
focus on environmental stewardship and offering
consumers energy-efficient choices for new or
replacement windows and doors. There are many steps
taken in the development and design process to help you live in comfort without hurting
the environment. Here are a few reasons to come
by our Champaign showroom when searching 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 carry 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 could damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.
Your windows and doors have a bigger
influence on your energy usage and home comfort than you might
think. According to energystar.gov2,
a normal 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 money. If you are interested in hearing more about your choices for
replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in
Champaign or schedule an appointment online.
