Nebraska is perhaps one of the U.S. states that experiences widely variable weather. Warm temperatures with thunderstorms characterize Nebraskan summer, while snow and cold wind dominate Nebraskan winter. According to a study made by the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, the Cornhusker State will be experiencing a four- to nine-degree increase in its temperature before the century ends. Furthermore, the state may also see an increase in the frequency of floods and severe storms.
There are many ways Nebraskans could protect themselves from varying weather conditions. One of these is to install energy-efficient and environment-friendly replacement windows in Lincoln from Renewal by Andersen® (RbA) of Omaha and Lincoln. Our windows can help you stay comfortable no matter what the weather is. They are composed of innovative materials and products that have been engineered to meet the energy efficiency and environment sustainability requirements of ENERGY STAR and our clients.
By switching to RbA windows, you get the following:
Windows Made of Fibrex®
Fibrex is an environmentally sustainable material made of 40% retrieved wood. It can withstand extreme temperature changes with very little expansion and contraction that won’t result in air gaps or bowing of the glass. Furthermore, it’s popular for its superior insulating features. Fibrex is 700 times better at insulation than aluminum. It’s also known for resisting decay, rot, rust, and mold growth.
