Earth Day

Today is International Earth Day, a day dedicated to increasing awareness about environmental issues and broadening support for environmental programs. Since its inception in 1970, Earth Day has become the largest civic event in the world with over a billion people participating in Earth Day campaigns annually.

This Earth Day is an excellent excuse to take some time and think about how you can better appreciate Earth. Here are some suggestions to celebrate Earth Day and help make our world a better place:

  • Donate unwanted or unused household items
    • This eco-friendly way of eliminating clutter can kick-start your spring cleaning while providing local charities the means to make much-needed cash and helping others gain affordable necessities.
  • Learn more about the environment
    • Hit the library or go online and learn more about our amazing world, from recycling tips to jaw-dropping facts about underwater lakes. If you have children, this is a great opportunity to instill awe and respect for our world.
  • Update your home
    • Earth Day is the perfect time to take a critical look at ways to make your home more environmentally responsible. Consider switching to energy efficient LED light bulbs and make sure your fireplace is properly outfitted with dampers, doors, and fireplace inserts to reduce heat loss. Also take a good long look at your windows. By installing energy efficient replacement windows, you can create a more energy efficient home and save money on energy bills.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
