Home Comfort that Helps the Environment

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Albany, NY

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 notes 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 receive 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 dedicated focus on environmental stewardship and providing consumers energy-efficient possibilities 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 comfort without hurting the environment. Here are a few reasons to come by our Albany showroom when looking 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 have thought. According to energystar.gov2, a typical home is able to save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by solely 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 lose style or comfort to save money. If you are interested in learning more about your choices for replacement windows or doors, visit our showroom in Albany or schedule an appointment online.
