What could be greener than saving energy and natural resources with high-efficiency Thermo-Tech Premium Windows and Doors? Our green solutions start long before our windows are delivered. Our entire company works toward responsible purchasing and use of our natural resources. From the way we manufacture our products to the materials we use and those we recycle, Thermo-Tech keeps a keen eye on the processes that minimize our impact on the environment while improving the indoor environment.
Vinyl is Green Smart
Thermo-Tech Premium Windows and Doors are made of vinyl, a sustainable, environmentally friendly material that lasts. Building products made of other materials, like wood, may seem to be greener solutions at first glance, but they are less energy efficient. They also break down many times faster than vinyl, which means they need to be replaced more often—requiring more energy consumption. Then consider that our products need no additional paint, stain, stripper, thinner or other solvents. Completely recyclable, vinyl simply makes environmental sense.
And naturally, Thermo-Tech helps reduce your home’s energy use with high-performance technology built into every Thermo-Tech window and patio door. Multiple chambers inside the frame trap air for superb insulation against heat loss. LoE glass options surpass Energy Star® ratings and provide superior protection for your home’s interior, even improving the view of your interior environment by minimizing furniture fading caused by the sun.
The U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is an important certification for recognizing builders for environmental and public health excellence. While building components themselves are not individually certified, they can contribute to the points awarded to a project as a whole. Thermo-Tech Premium Windows and Doors meet or exceed the requirements of Energy Star rating—a very significant part of meeting LEED certification standards as well as other green building rating systems.
