Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in El Paso, Texas

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in El Paso, Texas

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 notes the company’s continuing commitment 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 development of a highly insulating residential window with smart automatic shading in an exclusive partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.

Pella Windows and Doors Southwest has a clear focus on environmental stewardship and giving consumers energy-efficient possibilities 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 comfort without hurting the environment. Here are a few reasons to drop by our El Paso showroom when looking 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 protect the transfer of heat and blocks ultraviolet rays that can 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 standard home can save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by solely interchanging single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. This also lowers your home’s carbon footprint.

At Pella Windows and Doors Southwest, you don’t need to sacrifice 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, come by our showroom in El Paso or schedule an appointment online.
