Dodge Data and Analytics conducted a survey on homeowner use of healthy design and practices. Based on the data, homeowners prefer having a healthier home environment, despite a lack of understanding on how it will affect their health. In fact, 60% of homeowners are willing to invest more for a healthier home compared with a traditional one. Meanwhile, 70% are willing to invest more in healthier home products, such as casement windows in Seattle.
According to the survey, 39% of the respondents had a better sleeping experience, while 31% reported an improvement in their moods. Additionally, 31% were more comfortable while at in home and 30% experienced fewer instances of having an illness.
Impact of a Healthy Home
Additionally, 34% of homeowners did not note any impact on living in a healthier home. This lack of data is a clear indicator that many respondents lack the general knowledge of how a healthy home can affect their health. Many of them did not recognize the idea of a healthier home affecting conditions, such as headaches, migraines, depression, and seasonal colds and flu. For instance, a window replacement in Seattle can help lessen your use of HVAC units for more energy savings and reduced carbon footprint.
Our Eco-Friendly Windows
At Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle, we offer a wide selection of windows that can help you realize a healthier home. They feature Fibrex® frame composite made of reclaimed wood fiber and polyvinyl chloride from Andersen® Corporation factories. This gives our windows the natural beauty of wood, twice the strength and low-maintenance features of vinyl. This makes them resistant to fading, rotting, and warping, reducing the need for an early replacement, making them an environment-friendly product.
Additionally, they come with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that offers high-insulating properties for a cooler home. Aside from this, it can block harmful UV rays that can damage furniture and drapes, while letting in more daylight into a home. This can improve your mood and enhance Vitamin D intake.
An ideal window option would be our bay windows in Seattle. This particular style features a fixed central window, flanked by windows projecting out of your home for more sunlight and enhanced beauty. Another would be our casement windows, which will let you control airflow in your home for maximum ventilation.
