Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Greenfield, MA
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 received this distinction, which acknowledges the company’s continuing dedication to the creation 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 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 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 negatively impacting the environment. Here are a few reasons to come by our Greenfield showroom when searching for replacement windows and doors.
- The Architect Series® wood casement
windows, for example, are generally six times tighter than what’s required by the industry for air infiltration.
- We offer 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 can 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 normal home can save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by simply replacing 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 lose style or comfort to save a few bucks. If you are interested in learning more about your possibilities for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Greenfield or schedule an appointment online.
