The Andersen Corporation Green Movement
Environmental citizenship is one of the core principles of the Andersen Corporation. In 2015, they signed the Ceres Climate Declaration, joining the top names in manufacturing. This declaration works on supporting clean energy policies, transitioning to a greener economy, and protecting our future from climate change.
With 2013 as the baseline, the Andersen Corporation revealed new business practices to reduce energy consumption, water use, and solid waste by 20% per unit of assembly by 2020. As professionals in window replacement in Lincoln, NE, we strive to follow the example of our parent company.
Renewal by Andersen Smart Material Use
Renewal by Andersen® engineers all of our window frames with Fibrex®. This highly durable material contains 40% recycled and cleaned wood byproducts. It will not chip, rot, flake, corrode, blister, and peel, making for long-lasting replacement windows in Omaha. It also stays sturdy under severe weather conditions and extreme shifts in temperature. The production of these windows saves millions of lumber yearly.
Lowering Carbon Footprint
Our windows also come with our standard High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. Compared with dual-pane glass, this option is more energy-efficient, lowering your HVAC consumption and sustaining the ideal temperature in your home.
Designed with multiple layer of low emissivity coating, this glass acts as a thermal barrier. It prevents heat from escaping your home during the cold season, while barring it from entering during hot seasons. Choose this glass for your replacement windows in Bellevue to enjoy significant electricity savings. Consuming less energy also reduces your home’s carbon footprint, helping the environment.
