Home Comfort that Helps the Environment

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Ketchum, ID

Published on

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 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 receive the Sustained Excellence Award was the research into the development of a highly insulating residential window with smart automatic shading in an exclusive partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.

Pella Windows and Doors has a strong focus on environmental stewardship and giving consumers energy-efficient choices for new or replacement windows and doors. There are a number of steps taken in the development and design process to help you live comfortably without negatively impacting the environment. Here are three reasons to stop by our Ketchum showroom when searching for replacement windows and doors. 

  • The Architect Series® wood casement windows, for example, are generally six times tighter than what’s required by the industry 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 can damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.

Your windows and doors have a larger influence on your energy usage and home comfort than you might think. According to energystar.gov2, a standard home is able to save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by solely exchanging 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 lose style or comfort to save on your energy costs. If you are interested in learning more about your choices for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Ketchum or schedule an appointment online.
