Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Salt Lake City, UT

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Salt Lake City, UT

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 been given this distinction, which notes 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 receive the Sustained Excellence Award was the research into the development 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 dedicated focus on environmental stewardship and giving 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 a comfortable home without damaging the environment. Here are a couple reasons to stop by our Salt Lake City 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 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 may 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 standard home may save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by just interchanging single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also decreases 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, visit our showroom in Salt Lake City or schedule an appointment online.
