Today’s home improvement projects should be geared not only towards function, beauty and durability, but also towards helping the environment. Renewal by Andersen® aims to contribute to creating greener homes with every window installation. Here’s how our products make this happen:
- Keeping Indoor Air Healthy – Poor indoor air quality is considered by the U.S. Environmental protection agency as one of today’s top five health hazards. Most of us spend 90% of our time indoors – at work, at home, inside restaurants – that it makes us vulnerable to off-gassing, a phenomenon in which volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other toxins are emitted from common building materials like paint and plastics. This often continues years after installation and can accumulate over time. Renewal by Andersen can help reduce indoor air pollutants, thanks to responsibly manufactured replacement windows made with materials that have minimal emissions.
- Using Reclaimed Materials – All Renewal by Andersen custom window replacement units feature frames and sashes made with Fibrex® material, a composite of wood fibers and polymers that combines the strength of wood and the low maintenance benefits of vinyl. Fibrex material contains up to 40% wood fiber by weight, reclaimed from our parent company Andersen® Corporation’s manufacturing facilities, with pieces that are too small to be reused for other parts. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, standard on all our replacement windows, are likewise responsibly manufactured, containing at least 12% reclaimed glass by weight. We hold the highest Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) certification for recycled content.
- Energy Efficiency – Energy-efficient homes don’t just help homeowners save on their monthly energy costs, but also help reduce the demand for fossil fuels. Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are designed for energy efficiency with frames and glass allowing only minimal heat transfer that may result in heat loss during cold days and heat gain during hot days. With Renewal by Andersen replacement windows, you may see a cut of up to 25% off your monthly energy bills.
- Reducing Landfill Waste – Remodeling projects generate a lot of waste material, which often occupies a large portion of landfills. Materials with long life spans help slow down the rate landfills get filled, and few replacement window options last longer than our replacement windows. As we also take care of disposing of our clients’ old windows ourselves, we make sure that we strip them of all recyclable content first.
