The Andersen Corporation and the Environment
Environmental citizenship is one of the core values of the Andersen Corporation. In 2015, they were on the first major building product manufacturers to sign the Ceres Climate Declaration. This declaration works to accelerate the adoption of sustainable business practices.
The Andersen Corporation also unveiled new operational goals to reduce energy use, solid waste, and water use by 20% per unit of production by 2020, with 2013 as the baseline. As an expert in window replacement in Seattle, we follow our parent company’s example. Our replacement windows and doors are environmentally friendly and energy-efficient.
Renewal by Andersen and the Environment
For example, Renewal by Andersen manufactures all of our window frames from Fibrex® material. The frames and sashes contain 40% clean, reclaimed wood fiber by weight and have reduced wasted material. Through the years, this has saved nearly 90 million board feet lumber. Fibrex also makes our casement windows in Seattle long-lasting. Fibrex won’t blister, peel, chip, corrode, rot, or flake. It also stays stable and rigid under any kind of temperature.
In addition, all of our windows come standard with our energy-saving High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. This glass is more energy-efficient compared with regular dual-pane glass, helping you save more money and making your home more comfortable.
This glass has a spectrally selective multi-layer low emissivity coating that acts as a thermal barrier. It prevents heat from invading in summer, and escaping your home in winter. With our high-performance glass, your bay windows in Seattle can help reduce your home’s energy consumption and cut your energy bills by up to 25%. Since your home consumes less energy, power plants also require fewer natural resources.
