Home Comfort that Helps the Environment

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Champaign, IL

Published on

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.
