More of today’s homeowners are incorporating environmental impact into their home improvement plans. Fortunately, there are products that let you achieve this goal without making compromises with your home’s aesthetics, comfort and long-term performance. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City shares a look at how our replacement windows help make your home greener.
Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are among the top most energy-efficient, ENERGY STAR®-certified replacement windows available today. One of the immediate benefits of choosing energy-efficient windows is the energy savings: they help reduce heat loss during heating season (and heat-gain during cooling season) by slowing down heat transfer.
This helps maintain consistent indoor temperatures, which keeps indoor cooling and heating levels at minimum levels. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass and Fibrex® material frames are engineered to make this possible. With less usage of energy from the grid, which still relies a great deal on using fossil-based fuel, our replacement windows help reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
Renovations generate a lot of waste material. Proper disposal procedures sort out recyclable material, but it doesn’t eliminate all of the waste. Using sustainable products—that is, products with long life spans—can help slow down the rate landfills get filled up by increasing the periods between renovations. Renewal by Andersen replacement windows offer the advantage of long life spans, as well as some of the some of the best limited warranty coverage in the industry. We also help do our part in reducing landfill waste by disposing of our customers’ discarded windows ourselves.
Our replacement windows are certified by the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) for having the highest level of recycled content, compared to other window replacement products. Our Fibrex material frames contain up to 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight. We use wood fibers from trimmings sourced from our woodworking facilities in Minnesota. Likewise, our High-Performance Low-E4 glass packages contain up to 12% reclaimed glass by weight.
