What Makes Our Replacement Windows Environmentally Friendly?July 09, 2018
At Renewal by Andersen®of Milwaukee, we manufacture our replacement windows with the environment in mind because today’s home improvement products need to be environmentally friendly along with being strong, durable and energy-efficient. Here are some of the ways we try to create more environmentally friendly homes.
Using Reclaimed Materials
Our window frames and sashes are made of our exclusive Fibrex® material, a wood fiber and polymer composite that combines the strengths of wood and vinyl. Fibrex contains 40% wood fiber by weight, and that wood fiber is reclaimed from our the Andersen Corporation’s wood window manufacturing facilities. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages likewise contain at least 12% reclaimed glass by weight.
Improving Indoor Air Quality
We spend most of our time indoors, so making sure that the air we breathe is clean is incredibly important. That’s why our specialty windows and other window types are responsibly manufactured with materials that emit no harmful volatile organic compounds. Certain kinds of windows we install, like casement windows and double-hung windows, can also improve your home’s natural ventilation.
Improving Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Energy-efficient windows don’t just help you save on your monthly energy expenses. They also help conserve our natural resources. The less energy your home uses to keep you comfortable, the fewer resources are consumed by the power plants providing your home with electricity. Our windows minimize thermal transfer through the window glass, which can help reduce the workload on your HVAC systems.
