Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Owensboro, KY
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 notes 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 creation of a highly insulating residential window with smart automatic shading in an exclusive partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.
Pella Windows and Doors has a strong 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 comfortably without damaging the environment. Here are a couple reasons to come by our Owensboro 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 have 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 larger impact 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 just interchanging single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also reduces your home’s carbon footprint.
At Pella Windows and Doors, you don’t need to sacrifice style or comfort to save money. If you are interested in finding out more about your choices for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Owensboro or schedule an appointment online.
