According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, most of us spend our time indoors. But even inside the comfort of our homes, we can still be exposed to harmful pollutants. These can be in the forms of chemicals, gases, and living organisms that can pose several health problems.
To prevent such issues for you and your family, Renewal by Andersen® of Orange County – a trusted provider of Orange County vinyl windows – presents these tips to improve indoor air quality.
1. Provide proper ventilation by opening windows and doors.
Letting fresh outdoor air into your home is a great way to flush out harmful pollutants. Opening windows and doors lets air enter through natural ventilation. This way, you don’t have to use ventilating fans that consume too much energy.
2. Choose materials and finishes that are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Volatile organic compounds are chemicals that evaporate more easily at room temperature. They originate from different household materials such as solvents and varnishes. To ensure a healthier indoor air environment, choose materials that are low in VOC or that have been certified by SCS Global Services.
3. Maintain a consistent room temperature to prevent mold issues.
A stuffy room can increase the possibility of mold damage. Quality windows from Renewal by Andersen of Orange County can create a comfortable indoor environment by providing a consistent temperature throughout any season. With Low-E4® glass packages and patented Fibrex® material, our windows effectively reflect heat during summer and retain it during winter.

We are the only window company in Orange County, CA, to receive the SCS Indoor Air Advantage Gold certification.
