How Renewal by Andersen® Windows Improve Indoor Air Quality

February 02, 2016

Many people spend the majority of their time indoors. According to a recent study, most of us spend 90% of our lives indoors where harmful chemicals can enter via off-gassing. This eventually causes some health issues, as recent studies also indicate that indoor air is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Essentially, poor indoor air quality is among the top five health hazards nationwide.

Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, the most trusted provider of replacement windows in Waukesha and the surrounding areas, discusses the top causes of poor indoor air quality in your home.

What causes poor indoor air quality?

Several factors affect the quality of your indoor atmosphere. Moisture problems, for one, can cause mold growth, which can result in the dispersal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Other household products and furniture can also emit harmful VOCs .These chemicals cause numerous health effects, such as eye, nose, and throat irritation, nausea, and damage to the nervous system.

Poor ventilation is also one of the causes of poor indoor air quality. Tightly sealed rooms block the entrance of unconditioned air from the outdoors while keeping in the air produced by HVAC systems. This is extremely harmful, as hazardous chemicals may also be present in conditioned air.

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.
