Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Calgary, AB
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 earned 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 earn the Sustained Excellence Award was the research into the creation of a highly insulating residential window with advanced automatic shading in an exclusive partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.
Pella Windows and Doors has a clear focus on environmental stewardship and providing consumers energy-efficient possibilities for new or replacement windows and doors. There are many steps taken in the development and design process to help you live in comfort without hurting the environment. Here are three reasons to stop by our Calgary showroom when looking 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 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 could 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 normal home can save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by simply interchanging 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 learning more about your possibilities for replacement windows or doors, drop by our showroom in Calgary or schedule an appointment online.
