ProVia and Tom Adams Windows and Carpets are Stewards of our Earth
ProVia manufactures energy-efficient door and window products and exercise corporate environmental stewardship by recycling, reducing pollution emissions and much more.
They have been awarded this distinction numerous times by the EPA, four for Partner of the Year, seven 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 the Sammy the Star™ ENERGY STAR Educational Program.
ProVia’s dedication to creating energy-efficient products led to an active partnership with the ENERGY STAR Program. Since 2002, ProVia 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. ProVia works 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 their products.
At ProVia, not only do they manufacture energy-efficient doors and windows, but they also exercise corporate environmental stewardship. Here are a few examples:
- ProVia uses Honeywell’s fourth generation Solstice® Liquid Blowing Agent that was formulated to be nonflammable while significantly lowering global warming potential and improve energy efficiency.
- Recycle paper, metals and glass.
- Solar energy panels are used at three production facilities as part of the company’s effort to lower energy costs.
- ProVia ‘s Pollution Prevention Program dramatically reduced solvent usage.
- To save fuel, ProVia trucks use the TriPac Idle Reduction and Temperature Management System.
- Paperless online ordering and internal paperless fax system reduces paper usage.

Marvin Windows & Doors and Tom Adams Windows and Carpets are Stewards of our Earth
Energy-efficient windows can help reduce your utility bills and make your home more comfortable. Not to mention the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re helping the planet by minimizing environmental impact. Marvin offers a variety of window and door options that help you achieve long-term performance and energy cost savings, in any climate.
Replacing windows with energy-efficient ones can help reduce your utility bills, but the benefits go much further. Choosing energy-efficient windows makes your home more comfortable, as their performance determines how much heat comes in and escapes out through the windows.
Certification programs such as those administered by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) and ENERGY STAR provide ratings designed to indicate a window or door’s efficiency. Various performance ratings – like U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient – measure a product’s effectiveness in insulating and blocking heat from the sun, among other things.
