Green Seal has stringent standards when it comes to how products affect the environment. Renewal by Andersen®, as well as our parent company Andersen Corporation, have earned Green Seal’s Certification for Environmental Stewardship. We are the first manufacturers of residential windows to earn this certification, and it’s all thanks to our environmental commitment.
We understand the environmental challenges we face today, and we have been diligent in using these five solutions to guide our company:
1. Renewing Existing Housing
Did you know that the average home uses more energy and emits more carbon dioxide than the average automobile? This means making a home more energy-efficient should be high priority. We have replaced the windows on more than 300,000 homes, reducing their carbon footprint and helping them save energy. We use the latest technology when it comes to our materials to ensure energy efficiency.
2. Indoor Air Quality
One of the top five health hazards in the U.S. is poor indoor air quality, and when you realize that most people spend about 90% of their lives indoors, that’s definitely bad news. Our products are manufactured responsibly, so we never introduce toxins to your home when we replace your windows or doors.
3. Smart Use of Materials
Renewal by Andersen uses Fibrex to manufacture frames and sashes. Fibrex is a material that contains up to 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight. It’s as strong and insulative as wood, while also being as low-maintenance as vinyl. In other words, it combines the best features of wood and vinyl while eliminating their weaknesses. Most of the wood fiber we use comes from Andersen Corporation’s wood window manufacturing facilities.
Our windows come with High-Performance Low-E4 glass as standard. This glass blocks harmful UV rays and reduces the entry of outdoor noise.
4. Smart Use of Energy
Renewal by Andersen double hung windows and all other window types can help lower your energy bills by as much as 25%. Upgrading to SmartSun™ glass can help you save even more energy, as this glass is up to 70% more efficient during the summer months and up to 45% more efficient during winter than regular dual-pane glass.
5. Long Product Lifecycles
Our products are simply built to last in any weather. That’s why we can back them with the strongest warranties in the industry. This means that, for a long time, your home won’t be adding to the construction waste that ends up in landfills.
