3 Ways Renewal by Andersen® Promotes Sustainability

Much like our parent company, Andersen Corporation, Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois puts sustainability as a top priority. That’s why we are great supporters of advancements that make it possible for homeowners to enjoy greener options for their home improvement project. This, in turn, has earned us the trust of homeowners aiming to improve the comfort and energy efficiency of their living spaces.

We help them achieve that goal through quality window replacement. Here are three ways we promote sustainability with our replacement windows in Springfield, IL:

1. We use a durable and eco-friendly framing material. All of our windows use our exclusive Fibrex® composite for sashes and frames. This material combines the strength and insulating properties of wood with the low maintenance value of vinyl. Fibrex is made from 40% clean, reclaimed wood fiber, a fully recyclable material that reduces landfill waste.

Fibrex keeps an airtight seal that prevents air leakage, which can cause significant energy loss in your home. This material doesn’t pit, crack, or corrode. Unlike other framing materials, it doesn’t expand or contract when exposed to extreme changes in weather and temperature. Since its very durable, we can shape Fibrex into any window style, allowing for narrower frames and maximum glass area.

2. We use advanced window glass options. Combining our framing material with our selection of Low-E glass can help you enhance your home’s comfort levels and efficiency. Our windows come with High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, which reduces heat transfer and protects the interior from sun damage. This lets you enjoy warmer rooms in winter and cooler rooms in summer. Since it reduces the load on your HVAC system and maximizes available lighting in your home, you can save considerably on energy.

3. We continuously support the ENERGY STAR program. Renewal by Andersen is a top supporter of the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR program. This helps homeowners choose the most energy-efficient products, including windows. We take pride in the fact that all of our windows are ENERGY STAR-qualified, ensuring lasting comfort and efficiency for your home.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
