Andersen® Corporation, leading replacement window manufacturer, is recognized as an ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award for 2019. As one of the window replacement companies certified by Andersen Corporation, Solid State Construction shares what this award means for us and our clients.
Sustained Excellence Award
The Sustained Excellence Award was started by ENERGY STAR as a way to recognize companies that make headway in environmental protection through energy-efficient products and processes. Andersen Corporation has been an active ENERGY STAR partner since 1999. As an industry leader, Andersen Corporation consistently raises the bar for energy-efficient and responsibly manufactured replacement windows and patio doors.
Andersen Corporation takes steps to meet and exceed ENERGY STAR energy efficiency standards. The company conducts routine evaluations and upgrades to its facilities. A recent upgrade involved switching to all-LED facility lighting, which resulted in in about a 20% reduction in energy consumption. Andersen Corporation also actively reaches out and helps educate consumers on the benefits of energy efficiency.
The Benefits of ENERGY STAR®
Homeowners and roofing contractors count on ENERGY STAR-certified products to make their homes more energy-efficient. Andersen Corporation’s replacement windows are designed to help homeowners save on their utility costs by complementing their existing home insulation in reducing heat transfer. This helps lower indoor heating and cooling requirements, resulting in decreasing monthly energy consumption.
ENERGY STAR-certified products also have a lower environmental impact. Since these products help reduce energy use, they help decrease reliance on fossil fuels, which are still widely used to generate electricity. An average home generates up to 4.5 tons of greenhouse gases in a year. Andersen Corporation is, so far, the only replacement window company to have received the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold™ certification, thanks to their responsible manufacturing processes.
