Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Edmonton, AB
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 devotion to the advancement and promotion of energy-efficient products and the education of consumers on conservation issues.
One of the projects that helped us earn the Sustained Excellence Award was the research into the design 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 clear focus on environmental stewardship and giving consumers energy-efficient options 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 damaging the environment. Here are three reasons to drop by our Edmonton 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 the industry requirement 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 greater impact on your energy usage and home comfort than you might think. According to energystar.gov2, a standard home can save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by just interchanging 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 money. If you are interested in finding out more about your choices for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Edmonton or schedule an appointment online.
