Andersen Corporation’s Commitment
We all have a duty to safeguard the environment. As an industry leader, Andersen carries a greater responsibility. In 2014, Andersen signed the Ceres Climate Declaration. This declaration is intended to accelerate the adoption of sustainable business practices.
It recognizes that tackling climate change is the right thing to do, along with the economic potential in going green. In support of this program, Andersen has committed to reduce energy, water and solid-waste use by 20% per unit of product by 2020, with 2013 as the baseline. As a business leader in the building sector, Andersen sees the opportunity to contribute significantly to the climate change solution.
Renewal By Andersen’s Environmentally Friendly Practices
Renewal by Andersen of New Mexico is also dedicated to the stewardship of our environment through our use of energy-efficient replacement windows in Albuquerque, NM. Nationwide, Renewal by Andersen has replaced over 2,000,000 windows in over 300,000 homes. Since the average home uses more energy and creates more carbon emissions than the average automobile, this is beneficial in reducing energy consumption.
Green Seal estimates that if all windows in the US were as energy-efficient as those made by Andersen Windows, up to 2.5% of the US energy consumption each year would be saved. That’s equivalent to 200 gallons of oil for every US household. In addition, the highest SCS certified recycled content among window replacement companies was attained by Renewal by Andersen windows.
Our Fibrex® material frames and sash have 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight, so when you order our casement windows in Albuquerque, NM, you are helping reduce waste. Aside from that, Fibrex is a great window material choice because of its low maintenance features, along with its strength and insulation value. This composite material also has a higher heat tolerance and lower heat gain than other materials like vinyl and wood. This gives it a clear advantage as an energy-efficient frame material and really shines during the hotter seasons. Due to its innate heat resistance, we can manufacture narrower window frames and maximize glass area for our replacement windows.
Our Fibrex-framed windows also won’t crack or fade as easily as their counterparts. More importantly, the innate stability and low-maintenance properties of our windows give it a resistance to shrinking, a common window problem that’s the primary cause of drafts in the home.
