Window contractors shouldn’t focus only on providing their clients with beautiful windows. They should also be committed to helping find real and achievable solutions to today’s environmental challenges. Renewal by Andersen® takes pride in its commitment to helping protect the environment. With issues like climate change affecting all of us, we believe that we share in the responsibility to do something about.
That said, we also believe that being environmentally aware doesn’t mean you have to make drastic changes in your lifestyle. In fact, simply making your home more sustainable and energy-efficient can certainly make a huge difference. This brings us to our five answers to energy and environmental challenges we face today.
In the first installment of this two-part blog series, we’ll talk about two reasons why investing in Renewal by Andersen windows can help with our environmental efforts:
- Increased Energy Savings
Renewal by Andersen has already replaced over two million windows in over 300,000 homes across the country. This means that we’ve taken significant steps in making your homes more sustainable and energy-efficient. Green Seal, a nonprofit environmental standard development and certification program, even estimated that if every window we use in the country is manufactured by Renewal by Andersen, we could save up to 2.5% of our annual energy consumption nationwide—that’s about 200 gallons of oil per household! This is according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
- Improved Indoor Air Quality
Being environmentally aware isn’t just about being sensitive about the air quality outdoors. You should also take a closer look inside your home. Poor indoor air quality is actually one of the top 5 health hazards in the country. Toxins can be released through evaporation from building materials, or pollution may enter your home through cracks in your windows. This can be dangerous for your family, especially if there are members with ailments or allergies. Each Renewal by Andersen replacement unit, including picture windows in Las Vegas, is a responsibly manufactured product, and we make sure that it’s installed properly.
