Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Birmingham, AL
This past spring, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized 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 devotion to the creation 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 dedicated focus on environmental stewardship and offering consumers energy-efficient possibilities 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 hurting the environment. Here are a couple reasons to drop by our Birmingham showroom when you’re in the market 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 larger influence on your energy usage and home comfort than you may think. According to energystar.gov2, a standard home is able to save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by solely replacing 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 give up style or comfort to save on your energy costs. If you are interested in finding out more about your options for replacement windows or doors, visit our showroom in Birmingham or schedule an appointment online.
