The threat of climate change and the quality of the very air we breathe are two of the most pressing environmental challenges we face today. Something has to be done; and it all begins at home.
As part of our green commitment, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City wants to share some small things you can do now that will have great environmental impact. If you think you can’t make a huge difference, discover the profound effects of doing the following:
1. Replace Inefficient Doors and Windows
Did you know that simply getting replacement windows in Kansas City can significantly reduce your carbon footprints at home? As vital architectural features, the energy performance of your windows helps define the sustainability of your home.
If you notice red flags, such as condensation and drafts while your windows are closed, get new ones ASAP.
2. Choose Products with Impressive Ratings
Replacing your windows is one thing; getting energy-efficient replacements is another. Compared to other products, our window solutions never fail to impress critics. From double-hung to casement windows in Kansas City, and everything in between, all of our products have the ENERGY STAR® with remarkable ratings from the NFRC—which validates our strong energy efficiency claims.
3. Improve Indoor Air
Our brand, along with our parent company, is a proud recipient of a Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold™ certification. It means our solutions pass the rigorous indoor air emission standard in America. Unlike other products that produce toxins to your air your family breathes, our replacement windows wouldn’t pose that hazard for decades.
4. Support Recycled
There’s no better way to show care to the environment than recycling. Our company doesn’t just manufacture high-performance products, but also recycled windows to ease the ecology impacts of our operations.
Our very own Fibrex® comprises 40% of reclaimed wood fiber by weight—which remains unbeaten by any window replacement window up to this day.
