Producing aluminum, which is not found in nature in a clean form, also requires a complex process, including chemical processing of a raw material and the use of electrolysis that involves high power consumption.

Producing one kilogram of aluminum requires an expenditure of about 17 kilowatt hours, equivalent to a family consumption of one or two days.

In addition, the aluminum industry pollutes the air with emissions of hazardous fluoride compounds.

Many have seen (at least on TV) the huge smoking chimneys of iron factories and furnaces heated to thousands of degrees. Certainly a "green" window is one that will save more energy for heating / cooling and thus reduce fuel burning with all its implications.

The more our window is insulated, the less fuel we will spend on heating or generating electricity for air conditioning, less smoke will be emitted from the chimneys of power plants and less polluted water will spill into streams and rivers, thereby decreasing global warming.

How are PVC windows the "greenest" of all windows?

The term "green" is used to describe the extent to which a product's ecological properties in its production and operation. What is greener than a wooden window? On the surface, it would seem that it is made of the most natural material. But in order for the window to withstand heat, cold, rain,

rot and pests it must be processed with different types of chemicals even before it is painted. Additionally, it is important to know that in the preparation of a modern multi-layered tree profile only certain types of wood are used, which grow in northern regions of the earth, where the trees grow more slowly. They only use the highest quality parts of the trunk.

In the end, in order to have one "green" window, you have to cut down an entire tree. Even though the tree is green, the window frame made of wood is quite the opposite. We will admit, all types of window manufacturing (like all industries in general) do not benefit the environment, and PVC production is no exception.

PVC profiles still have ecological benefits. The most important of these is the possibility of recycling the material up to five times and the option of using the natural color, as the process of dying causes environmental damage, which must also be taken into account.

Conclusion: If the environment is important to you, we can take care of installing insulated windows in your home!
