Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Murray, Kentucky

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Murray, Kentucky

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 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 design 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 providing consumers energy-efficient choices for new or replacement windows and doors. There are many steps taken in the development and design process to help you live comfortably without negatively impacting the environment. Here are a couple reasons to come by our Murray 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 what the industry requires 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 bigger effect on your energy usage and home comfort than you may think. According to energystar.gov2, a normal home can save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by simply 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 a few bucks. If you are interested in hearing more about your options for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Murray or schedule an appointment online.
