Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Mankato, Minnesota

Home Comfort That Also Helps the Environment in Mankato, Minnesota

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 recognizes 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 design 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 dedicated focus on environmental stewardship and providing consumers energy-efficient options 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 couple reasons to drop by our Mankato 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 offer 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 greater effect on your energy usage and home comfort than you may think. According to energystar.gov2, a typical home can save $101 to $538 per year on energy costs by simply interchanging 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 sacrifice style or comfort to save money. If you are interested in finding out more about your options for replacement windows or doors, come by our showroom in Mankato or schedule an appointment online.
