Your windows do more than just serve as static decor for the home. They also play a key role in controlling and regulating the ventilation in your home. Some window styles are better at ventilating the home than others so it’s important to pick the right style.
In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee shares three window styles that offer maximum home ventilation.
This window style is a common choice for traditional and more contemporary homes. It swings open using a hand crank and the width of its swing allows more air into and out of your home. Since this window opens and locks at different angles, you have more control over the direction the air is coming in.
Ask any windows contractor and they’ll always recommend double hung windows if you’re looking for maximum ventilation. We agree; this particular window has a unique feature that gives you versatility on how you ventilate your home. Opening the top sash lets in warm air while the lower sash ushers in cold air. You can also open both sashes for maximum ventilation. This versatile ventilation, on top of the space-efficient size of the windows, makes it the perfect choice for smaller rooms, kitchens and bathrooms.
Also known as gliding windows, these are another window style designed for maximum ventilation. They have large window panes that slide open and admit a lot of air in. Think of them as a casement window that slides open instead of swinging out. This window style has a strong airtight seal that can have a positive impact on the energy efficiency of your home.
