Pella Launches New Energy-Saving Vinyl Window Line

Durable, Versatile Vinyl: Pella(R) 250 Series Windows

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

Distinctive design options abound

Whether a home features a modern or traditional look, vinyl windows can blend into a range of styles. Pella 250 Series windows offer popular design features and options like:

  • Low maintenance, easy-care vinyl frames
  • Full frame profile with edge detailing
  • Fade-resistant formula performance-tested for excellent weathering, durability and color retention
  • Simulated-divided-light and between-the-glass grilles
  • Color-matched hardware

Designed for durability, performance

Pella 250 Series windows sport high-performance features to help stand up to the weather, like:

  • Triple weatherstripping on single-hung and double-hung products provides an advanced barrier from the elements and is tested to withstand wind-driven rain falling at eight inches per hour, with winds up to 55 miles per hour (mph).3
  • Precision welding makes a stronger, more durable window to help resist warping and twisting over time.
  • Multi-chambered, fully welded sash and frame improve strength and thermal performance and reduce sound transmission.
  • Pella tests its windows and doors to meet or exceed industry requirements.

Offering convenience, plus peace of mind

Pella 250 Series windows offer Pella's most-requested features like:

  • Noise reduction -- Optional triple-pane glass helps reduce outside noise by 77 percent.4
  • Optional AutoLock hardware to automatically lock windows when shut. Simply close the sash and confirm it latches.
  • Factory installed window opening control devices are available on Pella 250 double-hung windows.
  • Sashes tilt in, to make it easier to clean exterior glass from inside your home.
  • Standard and special sizes to 1/8" -- Pella 250 Series is available in standard and special sizes to fit most openings.
