Home Comfort that Helps the Environment

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Grand Rapids, MI

Published on

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 acknowledges 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 Windows and Doors has a strong focus on environmental stewardship and giving consumers energy-efficient choices 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 negatively impacting the environment. Here are three reasons to come by our Grand Rapids 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 larger impact on your energy usage and home comfort than you may think. According to energystar.gov2, a standard home may save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by solely 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 give up style or comfort to save money. If you are interested in learning more about your choices for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Grand Rapids or schedule an appointment online.
