Renewal by Andersen® And Environmental Commitment Part 1May 04, 2017
Renewal by Andersen® – Milwaukee and our parent company, Andersen Corporation, are the first window manufacturers to ever receive the coveted Green Seal Certification for Environmental Stewardship. Today, we continue our efforts to remain environmentally committed and responsible. We have also created solutions to the top five environmental challenges homeowners face.
As homeowners, energy efficiency has always presented itself as a long-term problem. As your trusted local windows contractor, we know that your windows play a huge role in ensuring that your household remains energy-efficient. A little know fact is that the average home actually uses more energy and is responsible for more carbon emissions than your average automobile, and this is especially true with older homes
We have replaced over two million windows in over 300,000 homes and replaced them with our line of energy-efficient windows. Our solution is a big step towards making your home more energy-efficient and environmentally responsible.
Poor Indoor Air Quality and Our Solution
Many homeowners still struggle with poor indoor air quality, and did you know that this problem is actually one of the top five health hazards in America? As recipients of the Scientific Certification Systems Indoor Advantage Gold Certification, our windows ensure that your home is naturally ventilated by getting the fresh air it needs.
As an environmentally responsible company, we take leadership in reclaiming and reusing materials. Our Fibrex® material frames contain 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight. This isn’t just for show either. This composite material boasts the strength and insulating value of wood and the maintenance features of vinyl. What you get is a long-lasting and attractive frame for your window that won’t crack, corrode, or rot.
Our Window Solutions Lower Your Bills
The price of electricity is steadily increasing and according to the Energy Information Agency, there will be a dramatic increase at around 36% in home heating oil as well as a 23% increase in natural gas prices. We present our line of energy-efficient windows as a solution to help lower your home’s energy consumption.
Did you know that windows account for as much as 40% of your annual heating and cooling costs? Replacing your old, worn out windows with ours can help you save up to 25% on your energy bills thanks to our energy-efficient glass packages.
