Home Comfort that Helps the Environment

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Newport, Rhode Island

Published on

This past spring, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded 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 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 offering consumers energy-efficient choices 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 comfort without negatively impacting the environment. Here are three reasons to come by our Newport showroom when searching 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 protect 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 may think. According to energystar.gov2, a typical home is able to save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by just exchanging 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 on your energy costs. If you are interested in learning more about your options for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Newport or schedule an appointment online.
