How Green Is Your Home?

We all want to be environmentally conscious and “going green” doesn’t just mean recycling. Maintaining an environmentally friendly focus during a home improvement project is as easy as choosing the right supplier and contractor. Vinylume is proud to offer Renewal by Andersen replacement windows that are high quality, energy efficient AND environmentally friendly. Studies show that the average home uses more energy and is responsible for more carbon emissions than the average car. But don’t let that thought ruin your day. Reducing your home’s carbon footprint with Renewal by Andersen Replacement Windows is an easy way to increase your home’s energy efficiency while enhancing its value, beauty and comfort.  
 
Material World
The building materials used in home improvement products can emit toxins into the air we breathe. Renewal by Andersen is the only window company that has been awarded a Gold certification for its indoor emissions by the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) organization, which rates indoor air emission standards throughout the country. This ensures that your replacement windows are made with the safest materials available so you and your family are breathing toxin free, fresh air following your window replacement project.
 
Greening our Frames
Renewal by Andersen’s trademarked Fibrex frames are not only beautiful and strong, they are also made from 40% reclaimed wood fiber. This unbeatable recipe offers the strength and insulation properties of wood with the low maintenance durability of vinyl.
 
Greening our Glass
Our high performance trademarked low E-4 glass is made from a minimum of 12 % recycled glass treated with a top of the line coating. This reduces spotting and helps block harmful UV rays. Most importantly, the glass is 75% more energy efficient in summer and 45% more energy efficient in winter than standard double pane glass, saving you money on energy bills while keeping your house comfortable.
 
Greening our Attitude
Materials alone do not a green project make. The overall focus and attitude of the contractor and supplier have to be in place at every level.  Renewal by Andersen is committed to making every aspect of their business as environmentally focused as possible. To that end, all of our employees strive to make the best choices in the company’s use of natural resources. Vinylume is proud to offer Renewal by Andersen Windows that are environmentally friendly, energy efficient and beautiful.
