Getting great windows and saving the environment don’t have to be mutually exclusive. With Renewal by Anderson® of Kansas, you get both. In this post, we look at the five steps that make up our environmental commitment. We also show how this will affect you and your home.
1. Renewing Existing Housing
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average home uses more energy than an automobile. With our windows in Wichita, KS, you get energy-efficiency. These lower your home’s carbon footprint and conserves energy—all of that without compromising on the quality and look of our window options.
2. Indoor Air Quality
Windows play a big part in keeping the air in your home clean. With people spending 90% of their lives indoors, it is an important factor to consider. Renewal by Andersen of Kansas and our parent company are the only ones with the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold™ certification. This assures you that our windows help keep your air clean and free of contaminants.
3. Smart Use of Materials
All our windows feature Fibrex® frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass panes. Fibrex comes from reclaimed wood fiber combined with recycled thermoplastic polymer. The special panes are also made of reclaimed glass. This saves on resources and provides several benefits to your windows, primarily energy efficiency.
4. Smart Use of Energy
With the Energy Information Agency predicting an increase in prices of natural gas and heating oil, you have to be more energy-conscious. The US Department of Energy estimates that bad windows can make up over 40% of your homes heating and cooling bills. Renewal by Andersen windows regulate heat transfer across their surface effectively, resulting in energy savings up to 25%.
5. Long Product Lifecycles
Low-priced windows might save you money in the short term, but the need to replace them constantly will cost you. This is not just in terms of money, but also in the amount of waste your home will generate. Renewal by Andersen windows in Topeka, KS, last longer, saving you money and lessening the waste output of your home.
