While environmental initiatives certainly have great relevance today, what many people do not understand are the practical benefits that homeowners can enjoy. Being the first window company to receive the Green Seal Certification for Environmental Stewardship, Renewal by Andersen® certainly helps tend to the environment. Here are the practical benefits that make our windows worth the investment.
As our replacement windows in Portland last longer, little waste is generated from fewer installations. Our frames feature Fibrex®. Made of 40% reclaimed wood and 60% reclaimed thermoplastic polymer, it is twice as strong as vinyl with the look of wood. For our panes, we use High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. Apart from sharing recycled origins, both materials are long lasting and maintenance-free. Our windows help reduce the waste output of the industry and save you money.
2. Energy Efficiency
Another major benefit of our two environmentally friendly materials comes in the form of monthly energy savings. Both Fibrex and High-Performance Low-E4 glass efficiently regulate heat transfer across their surface. This keeps heat where it’s necessary. Not only does this optimize comfort, it also lowers your dependence on artificial cooling or heating systems. Renewal by Andersen of Portland’s windows can save you up to 25 percent on your monthly energy bills.
Poor indoor air quality represents one of the biggest health risks in America today. Much of that comes from volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that older window materials release. Renewal by Andersen of Portland represents the only window company to receive Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold™ certification. After all, our options for window replacement in Portland emit no VOCs or other harmful chemicals.
Coming in a range of popular styles and designs, our window options are certified environmentally friendly. Call Renewal by Andersen of Portland today at (503) 912-2668 for more information.
