Pella and ENERGY STAR.

Pella products offer the energy-efficient options that will meet or exceed ENERGY STAR guidelines in all 50 states.1


What is ENERGY STAR?
ENERGY STAR is the simple choice for energy efficiency achievements. For more than 20 years, people across America have looked to the EPA's ENERGY STAR program for guidance on how to save energy, save money, and protect the environment. Behind each blue label is a product, building, or home that is independently certified to use less energy and cause fewer of the emissions that contribute to climate change. Today, ENERGY STAR, is the most widely recognized symbol for energy efficiency in the world, helping families and businesses save $362 billion on utility bills, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2.4 billion metric tons since 1992. Join the millions who are already making a difference at www.energystar.gov.


Why does ENERGY STAR matter?

  • Save money – and more. Installing ENERGY STAR certified windows and doors lower energy bills and saves you money.  With more efficient windows, you also use less energy, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. For typical homes, choose ENERGY STAR and save on average $101-$538 and 1,006 to 6,072 pounds of CO2 which is equivalent to 51 to 310 gallons of gasoline a year when replacing single-pane windows.
  • Get comfortable. Put an end to cold drafts and overheated spaces. ENERGY STAR certified windows and doors help keep your home's temperature consistently comfortable. Even relaxing on your loveseat right by the window can be cozy with ENERGY STAR.
  • Protect your valuables. Many ENERGY STAR certified windows and doors have a special coating on the glass that is like sunscreen for your house.


How do I know if my Pella window or door meets ENERGY STAR requirements?

  • Look for the ENERGY STAR logo on the product's NFRC label.
  • Pella products offer the energy-efficient options that will meet or exceed ENERGY STAR guidelines in all 50 states. 1
  • Some Pella products significantly exceed U.S. ENERGY STAR guidelines.

What are the benefits of ENERGY STAR to consumers?

  • Lower utility bills. By using less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating, ENERGY STAR certified homes deliver approximately 20% savings on annual utility bills. Over the 7 to 8 years that a typical family lives in a home, you can save thousands of dollars in maintenance costs.
  • Enhanced performance. In ENERGY STAR certified homes, comfort is ensured with consistent temperatures between and across rooms; indoor air quality is enhanced by reducing dust, pollen, bugs, and excessive humidity; and durability is improved with comprehensive water protection, windows that block damaging sunlight, and better grade equipment.
  • Environmental Protection. The energy used in our homes comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants. So, by using less energy to operate, ENERGY STAR certified homes help to prevent air pollution – an added benefit for today's environmentally-conscious consumer looking for more "green" choices.
