Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in South Portland, ME

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in South Portland, ME

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 received this distinction, which acknowledges the company’s continuing dedication 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 strong focus on environmental stewardship and offering 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 comfortably without negatively impacting the environment. Here are a couple reasons to come by our South Portland showroom when searching 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 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 protect the transfer of heat and blocks ultraviolet rays that may damage carpeting, fabrics and wall coverings.

Your windows and doors have a larger influence 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 simply exchanging single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also reduces 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 finding out more about your choices for replacement windows or doors, visit our showroom in South Portland or schedule an appointment online.
