Your windows aren’t just for show; they’re also responsible for controlling and regulating the ventilation in your home. The design of your windows affects how well they do this, so choosing the right style of windows is very important. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky discusses the window styles that are best at regulating ventilation.
Casement windows are operated by a hand crank that lets them swing open. Casement windows are popular in both contemporary and traditional homes because they are easy to operate and can fill your home with abundant fresh air.
Casement windows can be opened and locked at different angles, which lets you control the direction of the breeze entering your home. Our casement windows also boast a dual-layer weather air seal that prevents wind from entering and escaping unless you allow it.
We also recommend double hung windows. The design features twin sashes with one installed over the other for increased ventilation. You can even open both sashes for maximum airflow. Double-hung windows are very popular for many homes thanks to their versatile design that works well in almost any room of the house—whether it’s the bedroom, kitchen, or living room.
Sliding windows are another window design engineered for maximum ventilation. These windows boast one of the largest glass panes available, and can slide wide open to allow refreshing outside air into your home. This window style also features airtight sealing, giving you complete control of your home’s ventilation.
We always recommend the window designs that allow you to control your home’s ventilation. For expert window installation or to learn more about our services, give us a call at (270) 215-5825. We install casement and double hung windows throughout Kentucky.
