Important Questions and Answers About Indoor Air Quality

Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?

We spend the majority of our time indoors, so we need to be careful about the air we breathe. Problems with ventilation can lead to a concentration of indoor air pollutants. These pollutants can aggravate existing health problems and make your interior feel uncomfortable.

What Kinds of Health Problems Does Poor Indoor Air Quality Cause?

Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are typically emitted by building materials and other chemicals. VOCs can cause throat, eye and nose irritation among other problems. Mold spores are also a problem because they can trigger asthma and allergies. We recommend opening a casement or double-hung window to keep fresh air circulating and prevent the concentration of air pollutants.

How Can We Improve Indoor Air Quality?

Regular ventilation and source control can improve your home’s indoor air quality. Locate and remove the sources of VOCs within your home and make sure that your interior receives plenty of fresh air. Mechanical ventilation works, but you can also use natural ventilation. This involves opening your windows when the weather is nice and letting fresh air into your home. Fortunately, we offer screens with our operable windows to help you with this. The screens will prevent insects and airborne debris from entering your home.

Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee can make and install high-quality picture windows, casement windows, double-hung windows and more. Our operable window types can help you create a healthier home by improving natural ventilation. Our replacement windows also don’t emit any harmful VOCs.

Hear From Our Customers

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.

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!!!

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.
