Environmentalism is on the rise due to heightened awareness and understanding of what is—crucial for the environment. Businesses country-wide are putting extra emphasis on creating and offering environmentally-responsible products to their clients, as the demand continues to increase.
This all translates into current homeownership and craftsmanship. Here at Lifetime Windows & Doors in Portland, OR, for example, our team prides itself in providing high-quality and eco-friendly products. If energy efficiency is your goal, our team has you covered with our windows.
There has been so much advancement in window technology. In fact, finding a window that isn’t energy efficient is tough.
How energy efficient windows benefit your family
Besides making you feel good about your choice and the effect it will have on your environment, here’s how choosing energy efficient windows through Lifetime will help you and yours:
– Energy efficient windows lower HVAC costs
– Energy efficient windows reduce annual heating and cooling bills
– Often times, energy efficient windows effectively reduce UV rays which enter your home and fade furniture, walls, art, rugs, etc.
– Energy efficient windows reduce frost and condensation
– Energy efficient windows have a similar technology to that of the glass used for vehicle windshields—that is to say, they have increased safety and durability
What is ENERGY STAR rating?
The trademark ENERGY STAR is an international standard for energy efficient consumer products which originated in the United States in 1992 by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE). In order for a product, like a window, to boast this rating, it must meet very stringent, very specific stipulations. For more information, go here: https://www.energystar.gov/about
Example: Vinyl Windows—the environmentally sound choice
Our vinyl windows (otherwise known as PVC material) can be 100% recycled and up to 80% of post-industrial vinyl is reclaimed and recycled. For the environmentally-minded, these are incredible statistics. Further, even though vinyl products have gotten bad press in recent years—these are the facts for those concerned with responsible living!
Example: Wood Windows—another environmentally sound choice
It is challenging to find a more environmentally conscious material than wood. Anytime we can use organic materials, we are automatically using something that can be recycled or given back to the Earth, which is the essence of sustainable practices and responsible stewardship. In the past, homeowners have had mixed feeling about using wood windows due to the controversy surrounding deforestation. These days, however, window manufacturers often used their own crops/exclusive forests from which to draw, so as not to affect the forest population and natural habitats we hold so dear.
