Energy Efficiency

We're committed to environmental stewardship

When you purchase energy-efficient doors or windows from ProVia, you’re doing more than conserving energy in your own home. You’re supporting our company’s commitment to protecting the environment that we all call home.

About Energy Star

ProVia has partnered with ENERGY STAR® since 2002 to ensure that we produce energy-efficient, professional-class windows and doors that meet or exceed their certified criteria. ENERGY STAR windows and doors have been independently tested and certified to meet strict energy-efficiency standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency. Our engineers have worked closely with the voluntary ENERGY STAR program to design and produce entry doors and replacement windows that provide energy savings and value to our customers.

We are proud to have been recognized over the years for our efforts. In 2022, we received our 15th Energy Star Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award from the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy.

Products that meet these criteria have the distinctive blue ENERGY STAR logo as part of their packaging or marketing materials.

At ProVia, we consistently raise the bar in our engineering and manufacturing processes to bring top-performing products to market, as evidenced by this, our 15th ENERGY STAR award. We’re honored to help American families and businesses save energy and money every day. ProVia prioritizes energy efficiency education as well, through dealer/distributor training and marketing materials.

Energy Efficiency & Sustainability

We are committed to exercising corporate environmental stewardship because it aligns with our Core Values of Integrity, Continuous Improvement and Sustainability. Every day, we strive to do our part to protect our natural resources by recycling, reusing materials where appropriate, and reducing pollution emissions.

In 2021, we completed installation of a 1.792 MW solar array at our stone manufacturing facility, comprised of 4,480 solar panels. It is expected to reduce electrical power consumption by 60% and to prevent emission of 1,472 tons of CO2 annually.

Sustainable product development is important to ProVia—in addition to the solar array, our stone manufacturing plant employs rainwater holding tanks and uses recycled water on the production line, our residential metal shake and slate roofs are manufactured from domestically sourced recycled steel, and our siding products contribute to LEED and ICC 700 National Green Building standards.

In addition:

  • We use a nonflammable liquid blowing agent that improves energy efficiency and lowers global warming potential.
  • Our Pollution Prevention Program dramatically reduces solvent usage.
  • To save fuel, our trucks use the TriPac Idle Reduction and Temperature Management System.
  • We use paperless online ordering and internal paperless fax systems to reduce paper usage.
  • We recycle paper, metals, and glass.

LEED Certification

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a non-profit/non-government agency developed by USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) in 1998 to encourage sustainable building practices in several different markets.

The LEED green building certification program is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of green buildings. It is a voluntary certification program that can be applied to any building type and any building life-cycle phase. It promotes the whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in key categories. For a building to become LEED certified, it must meet specific prerequisites and achieve specified performance levels to qualify for rating points.

All rating categories can achieve 1 of 4 levels of certification. ProVia door products can contribute to LEED points in 3 credit categories, helping your project satisfy all prerequisites to be certified. The three categories ProVia doors contribute to are as follows:

Energy and Atmosphere (EA)—This credit category encourages a variety of energy strategies such as reducing carbon impact and energy consumption.

Material and Resources (MR)—This credit category encourages sustainably grown, harvested, produced and transported products and materials. Reuse and recycle existing building materials. Use more recycled content.

Regional Priority (RP)—This credit category encourages use of regional products to reduce carbon impact of fossil fuels in transportation and to support local economies.

We are here to help you build LEED-certified projects which are designed to:
  • Lower operating costs and increase asset value.
  • Reduce waste sent to landfills.
  • Conserve energy and water.
  • Be healthier and safer for occupants.
  • Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives in hundreds of cities.
  • Demonstrate an owner’s commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility.

ENERGY-EFFICIENCY TAX CREDITS

For ProVia doors and windows

This manufacturer’s certification statement provides the documentation needed to receive an energy tax credit per Non-business Energy Property Credit (on IRS form 5695)
 through December 31, 2021.

HOW TO QUALIFY FOR THE TAX CREDIT
  1. Purchase and install ENERGY STAR® certified products beginning January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2021. Tax credit is for cost of product only – it does not include installation costs. Tax credit is for taxpayer’s principal residence only.
  2. This act enables homeowners to receive a tax credit for 10% of the product cost or a maximum amount of $200 for qualifying windows and 10% of the product costs or a maximum amount of $500 for qualifying doors (cannot exceed $500 total tax credit).
    If the homeowner has claimed a Non-business Energy Property Tax Credit of $500 or more in the 2006 through 2017 tax years, they are not eligible for this tax credit for 2018 – 2021.
  3. The homeowner may be required to have a Manufacturer’s Certification Statement to qualify for the tax credit. This is a signed statement from ProVia certifying that the product or component listed qualifies for the 2018-2021 tax credits.
