Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle is an eco friendly window replacement company that is focused on providing value for its customers. In addition, we care about the environment and do our best to answer the environmental challenges faced by the world today. We do this through the following:
Why Does Energy Efficiency Matter?
Improving the energy efficiency throughout your home significantly reduces the use of electricity, which demands less use from a carbon intensive power plant. Did you know that an average household uses more energy than is required for an automobile to produce carbon emissions? This can be an unknown danger to your environment due to how much electricity a home can use. We do our best to encourage homeowners to live in a more energy-efficient home to minimize energy wastage. A simple replacement of energy star certified windows will do wonders for the environment.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Improper air ventilation inside the home may cause high levels of humidity. This encourages the growth of molds and mildew. On top of that, you may be subject to toxins due to the off-gassing of building materials. Even years after construction, your building materials may still be releasing these toxic gases into your home and the environment. We recommend the use of an energy efficient framing material, which is used for all of our windows to improve the ventilation of your home. This way it is possible to safely ventilate without releasing toxins into the air, and your home, because the materials we use are responsibly manufactured.
Eco Friendly Material Frames
We don’t just use any material for our windows. At Renewal by Andersen® our eco friendly material frames are made of 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight. This is a major component of our composite framing material, Fibrex® which ensures that our material is strong and offers proper insulation. Our window frames are resistant to cracking, peeling, or rotting, with a lifetime warranty. Our windows are also available with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which is made from at least 12% reclaimed glass by weight.
Minimize Construction Waste
Aside from using reclaimed glass and wood in our windows, we also manufacture our products to a high standard so they last for a long time. Our product is also Energy Star Certified, which we highly recommend to have for any product purchased for your home. A homeowner contributes to the landfills through construction waste if their windows need replacement within a decade of installation. Our products are built to last to avoid such waste.
