PELLA, IA--(Marketwired - January 31, 2014) - Versatile vinyl windows from Pella Windows and Doors now include a new product line designed to help save on energy, and home maintenance.
The new Pella 250 Series line is available in popular single-hung, double-hung and sliding window styles. The 250 Series line includes energy-efficient options that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® guidelines in all 50 states, across the USA.
"Our new Pella 250 Series vinyl windows give builders, remodelers and homeowners more of everything they value about vinyl, designed to fit nearly any project and budget," said Pella Product Manager Duane Putz.
Featuring exceptional energy-saving performance
Advanced Low-E insulating double-pane glass comes standard -- a natural choice, especially for climates with hot and cold weather extremes. Pella 250 Series windows with advanced Low-E triple-pane glass are 54 to 77 percent more energy-efficient than single-pane windows1 and block 86 percent of the sun's fading ultraviolet (UV) rays.
- An option of three panes of glass and Advanced Low-E help maximize energy efficiency while increasing comfort year-round.
- As an option, argon can be inserted into the space between insulating glass panes to help enhance energy efficiency.
- Pella 250 Series offers energy-efficient options that will meet or exceed ENERGY STAR guidelines in all 50 states.2
