Home Comfort that Helps the Environment

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in North Carolina, and Roanoke, Virginia

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 been given this distinction, which recognizes the company’s continuing commitment to the development 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 development of a highly insulating residential window with advanced automatic shading in an exclusive partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.

Pella has a clear focus on environmental stewardship and giving consumers energy-efficient options for new or replacement windows and doors. There are a number of steps taken in the development and design process to help you live in a comfortable home without damaging the environment. Here are three reasons to stop by our North Carolina showroom when searching 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 could damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.

Your windows and doors have a greater influence on your energy usage and home comfort than you might think. According to energystar.gov2, a standard home may save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by simply replacing single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also reduces your home’s carbon footprint.

At Pella, you don’t need to sacrifice style or comfort to save a few bucks. If you are interested in learning more about your options for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in North Carolina or schedule an appointment online.
