Our dedication to creating energy-efficient products led to an active partnership with the ENERGY STAR® Program. Since 2002, our engineers have worked closely with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its ENERGY STAR voluntary program to help who dedicate themselves to environmental responsibility. We work hard to produce professional-class doors and custom replacement windows that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR certified criteria and proudly display the distinctive blue label on our products.
ProVia®'s ENERGY STAR certified doors and windows are independently tested and certified to meet strict energy-efficiency standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency. ProVia has been awarded eleven times by the EPA, four for Partner of the Year, six for Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence, and once for Excellence in Promotion for our outstanding efforts to promote and educate our communities on the importance of saving energy with our Sammy the Star™ ENERGY STAR Educational Program.
At ProVia, not only do we manufacture energy-efficient doors and windows, but we also exercise corporate environmental stewardship. Here are a few examples:
- We use Honeywell's fourth generation Solstice® Liquid Blowing Agent that was formulated to be nonflammable while significantly lowering global warming potential and improve energy efficiency.
- We recycle paper, metals and glass.
- Solar energy panels are being used at three production facilities as part of the company's effort to lower energy costs.
- Our Pollution Prevention Program dramatically reduced solvent usage.
- To save fuel, our trucks use the TriPac Idle Reduction and Temperature Management System.
- Paperless online ordering and internal paperless fax system reduces paper usage.
From the dreaming stages of purchasing your windows and doors to the actual installation of your products, ProVia and our partnership with ENERGY STAR, is with you every step of the way to assure you have quality performance products that will not only save you money but stay true for years to come.
