Home Comfort that Helps the Environment

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Long Island, NY

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 received 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 gain 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 strong 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 hurting the environment. Here are three reasons to come by our Long Island 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 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 prevent the transfer of heat and blocks ultraviolet rays that can damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.

Your windows and doors have a greater effect on your energy usage and home comfort than you might think. According to energystar.gov2, a typical home can save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by just replacing single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also lowers your home’s carbon footprint.

At Pella Windows and Doors, you don’t need to give up style or comfort to save a few bucks. If you are interested in hearing more about your options for replacement windows or doors, drop by our showroom in Long Island or schedule an appointment online.
