Because buying new windows can be an important investment, we recently developed a portion of our library that focuses solely on various window types and brands. One of the top manufacturers with a solid reputation is the Andersen Window & Door Company.
Already known for high-quality, energy efficient, and beautiful wood products, Andersen was recently given one more feather for their well-rounded cap. It obtained the distinction of being the only window manufacturer yet to receive the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage & Trade Gold Certification for indoor air quality.
So what exactly does this mean? Well, this standard was developed to measure the indoor air quality in the hopes of creating as healthy an environment as possible. The standard was established by the State of California’s strict emission policies for school children. This certification guarantees that Andersen windows will help to maintain the right balance of ventilation and energy efficiency within a building to ensure a healthy environment.
Not only does this certification give The Andersen Window & Door Company a one-up over its competitors, it also automatically accepts the company to LEED and other environmental rating programs. Andersen is already known for being committed to environmentally sound principles. Not only does it have LEED certification, the Green Seal of Approval, and Energy Star approval, but they also produce a product out of reclaimed materials called “Fibrex.”
I guess this is just one more reason why purchasing Andersen windows is a wise investment. Request free estimates from prescreened window installersin your area.
