With people always looking for more environmentally friendly solutions, the demand for options that help homeowners “go green” is at an all-time high. According to the leading window contractor in the area, one of the better ways to make your home a bit greener is by getting custom windows from Renewal by Andersen®.
New Windows, Fewer Problems
One of the reasons why many households have relatively large carbon footprints is because they use up more energy than they should, particularly when it comes to air conditioning. Old windows tend to have poor insulation, putting more strain on the HVAC. This, in turn, increases your home’s electric consumption. New windows boast better insulation, which reduces your home’s environmental impact.
Aside from having fewer issues, RBA custom windows also have modern features geared towards going green. Low-E glass greatly reduces the amount of heat that your HVAC has to deal with. Newer frame materials like Fibrex® also boast better thermal resistance compared to regular metal frames. Any leading window company will tell you that you will get more value out of your custom windows over the course of their expected lifespan.
People often forget the environmental impact of window maintenance. Keeping old windows may require the application of paint and coating that, when spilled on the ground, could contribute to ground pollution. Fortunately, today’s windows are fairly low-maintenance and require nothing beyond clean warm water to keep them dirt-free.
Landfill Waste Reduction
RBA’s custom replacement windows are made of recycled material. This helps Mother Nature in two ways. First, it means new windows no longer use as many raw materials as before. Second, since windows are recycled, they help reduce the amount of waste that simply ends up in landfills. This makes newer windows environmentally friendly from the day they were manufactured to the day they are replaced.
