Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Terre Haute, IN
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 earned this distinction, which recognizes the company’s continuing dedication to the development 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 clear 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 negatively impacting the environment. Here are three reasons to drop by our Terre Haute 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 what
the industry requires 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 protect the transfer of heat and blocks ultraviolet rays that may damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.
Your windows and doors have a greater effect on your energy usage and home comfort than you might have thought. According to energystar.gov2, a standard home may save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by just exchanging single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also decreases 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 options for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Terre Haute or schedule an appointment online.
