When it comes to a window installation, the style of the window affects more than just the appearance—it also determines ventilation. If ventilation is a priority for you, then you need to invest in window styles with superior ventilating capabilities.
In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Cincinnati shares four window designs that greatly improve ventilation:
The sliding window is one of the newer window designs available. It’s a great choice if you want to improve ventilation in a room. As an added bonus, it’s also one of the easier window designs to operate, making it ideal for aging-in-place homes.
If you’re looking for a classic-style window that provides ample ventilation, you can’t go wrong with casement windows. These windows feature a hinge on the side that you crank, allowing the window to open outward. Also, because they are taller than they are wide, they’re a good choice for smaller rooms that require extra ventilation.
Bay windows, like their bow counterparts, extend outwards from the wall, giving you additional interior space that you can use for a variety of purposes such as extra seating or storage. Unlike the bow window, which has a central, non-operable picture window, bay windows have three or more windows flanked by casement windows for ventilation. Alternatively, they can all be casement windows, which allows more natural airflow into your room.
Double hung windows boast practical elegance. Featuring two sashes that slide vertically within the frame, these windows allow for more versatility when it comes to ventilation. We recommend this design if you want to have complete control of your room’s ventilation and airflow. Double hung windows also work well in smaller spaces.
