The company’s Green Seal Certification makes Renewal by Andersen the only window manufacturer to receive this distinction which includes the certification of all Renewal by Andersen® windows. Green Seal is a national nonprofit environmental organization that helps consumers choose environmentally responsible products.

- Energy Efficiency

Green Seal estimates that if all windows in the U.S. were as energy efficient as those made by Andersen Windows, Americans would save up to 2.5 percent of the annual U.S. energy consumption—an estimated 200 gallons of oil for every household in the U.S.
Renewal by Andersen has achieved the ENERGY STAR Qualified Window Specialist top rating in performance criteria for all climate regions of the U.S. Products with the ENERGY STAR label are designed to use less energy, help consumers save money on energy bills and protect the environment.
