Environmental and Energy Challenges Homeowners Face Part 1June 08, 2016
Based on a statement made by the Environmental Defense Fund or EDF, we are close to being overwhelmed by energy issues. That said, it is essential to consider switching to eco-friendly products to improve our homes so we can help save the planet.
In this first part of our blog series, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, your specialist in replacement windows in Milwaukee talks about common environmental and energy challenges homeowners face today:
A growing number of gadgets and appliances are being used in homes, all of which eat a large sum of energy. Based on EDF, up to 65% of climate pollution comes from the use of energy alone. In addition, you end up spending more on your energy bills, which is not sustainable. An efficient way of preventing this from happening is by installing energy-efficient products. At Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, our patio doors and casement window in Milwaukee can be the solution.
Indoor Air Quality
Many factors can affect indoor air quality, such as carbon footprint emitted by HVAC units, use of cooking appliances, or mold growth caused by drafts. These can pollute the air your household breathes, endangering everyone’s health. By choosing eco-friendly products such as our specialty windows in Milwaukee, WI, you can safeguard your health.
This is one of the biggest threats to our environment. Sub-par products with short service lives tend to require a need for replacement, which exhaust natural resources. They also lack recyclability, which makes them a liability to nature. When you choose quality products, however, you can expect them to last longer, reducing the need for replacement and resources.
