5 Ways Renewal by Andersen® Ensures Sustainable DevelopmentNovember 23, 2015
Renewal by Andersen® and its parent company, Andersen Corporation, are staunch stewards of environmental sustainability. Our company answers today’s environmental challenges in five ways. In this post, we discuss each of them:
#1. Renewing Existing Housing
Green Seal estimates that Americans could save up to 2.5 percent of the U.S. energy consumption yearly. That is, if all homes used windows as energy-efficient as those from Andersen. This would allow us to save approximately 200 gallons of oil for every household.
Working with [company_name] on your next window replacement in Saratoga Springs, NY, can lower your energy cost and consumption. After all, we have worked on 300,000 homes and replaced over two million windows.
#2. Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality presents many health hazards. Most people spend 90% of their time indoors where there is poorer quality of air. This is because of off-gassing, or the process where toxins are released through evaporation from building materials. By working with us for your window replacement, fresh air is easier to attain.
We are the only window company to receive the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold™ certification. This meets the California Section 01350 Specifications, and is the strictest indoor air emission standard in the U.S.
#3. Smart Use of Materials
Our frames and sashes are made of Fibrex, which contains 40% reclaimed wood fiber. This material has the strength and insulating value of wood, and the low maintenance features of vinyl. It never requires painting and will not crack, corrode, pit, or rot.
Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass is made from a minimum of 12% reclaimed glass. This glass features an innovative coating that helps reduce water spots by up to 99%, when activated by sunlight. This makes your view better and the upkeep easier. This glass also helps block harmful UV rays and reduces sound penetration.
#4. Smart Use of Energy
A new window or French patio door in Woodstock, NY, from Renewal by Andersen of Eastern New York can save you up to 25% on your energy bills. Our newest and most energy efficient glass, SmartSun™ glass, is 70% and 45% more energy efficient in summer and winter, respectively.
#5. Long Product Lifespan
Construction waste makes up a large majority of landfill waste. Choosing durable products for your home can significantly help limit landfill waste. Our home replacements and additions have a long life cycle, backed by extensive warranties.
