MI Windows & Doors recently donated and installed a complete window package of new MI EnergyCore windows into a Habitat for Humanity home being built in Prescott Valley, Ariz. The casements and awnings in the home represented the first-ever installation of the manufacturer's new high-performance window line.

The new line features AirCell PVC co-extruded frame technology, developed for high energy efficiency and strength. The frame is designed to support triple-pane IG, with additional strength provided by internal aluminum reinforcements at the lock rails for maximum security.

"It was satisfying knowing that the first MI EnergyCore windows to ever be installed were going to such a good cause," states Dan Cummings, general manager at MI's Prescott Valley plant. "They installed flawlessly and I was proud of the job that our team did to produce such a quality product. These windows will provide the homeowner with many years of energy savings."

"Prescott Area Habitat for Humanity is thrilled to be the first to have the new EnergyCore windows installed in our current build in Prescott Valley," says Miriam Haubrich, executive director for the local organization. "We are especially pleased for the homeowner who will have increased energy efficiency resulting in lower utility costs and sustained affordability."

Based in Gratz, Pa., MI has donated more than $1.2 million in products and services to Habitat for Humanity over the last 10 years, it reports.
