Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Bloomington, IL

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Bloomington, IL

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 commitment to the advancement and promotion of energy-efficient products and the education of consumers on conservation issues.

One of the projects that helped gain the Sustained Excellence Award was the research into the development 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 dedicated focus on environmental stewardship and offering consumers energy-efficient options 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 a comfortable home without damaging the environment. Here are three reasons to drop by our Bloomington 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 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 prevent the transfer of heat and blocks ultraviolet rays that could damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.

Your windows and doors have a larger impact on your energy usage and home comfort than you might have thought. According to energystar.gov2, a normal home may save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by just exchanging 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 on your energy costs. If you are interested in learning more about your possibilities for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Bloomington or schedule an appointment online.
