This past spring, the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented Pella
with its 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year-Sustained Excellence Award. This
is the second time Pella has received this distinction,
which acknowledges the company’s continuing dedication
to the advancement and promotion of energy-efficient
products and the education of consumers on conservation issues.
One of the projects that
helped us receive 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 dedicated
focus on environmental stewardship and providing
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 three reasons to come
by our Asheville showroom when searching 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 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 inhibit 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 may think. According to energystar.gov2,
a typical home can save $101 to $538
per year on energy costs by just interchanging
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 sacrifice style or comfort to save on your energy costs. If you are interested in hearing more about your possibilities for
replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in
Asheville or schedule an appointment online.
