Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Davenport, IA
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 acknowledges the company’s continuing devotion 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 creation 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 clear focus on environmental stewardship and offering 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 comfortably without damaging the environment. Here are a couple reasons to come by our Davenport 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 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 can damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.
Your windows and doors have a greater influence on your energy usage and home comfort than you might think. According to energystar.gov2, a standard home may 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 sacrifice style or comfort to save a few bucks. If you are interested in learning more about your options for replacement windows or doors, visit our showroom in Davenport or schedule an appointment online.
