One of the most thrilling benefits of installing replacement windows is the opportunity to improve the way your current windows look and operate. A picture window in the living room frames a gorgeous view of the outdoors and lets in natural daylight, but can make the space really warm during summer months. It would be ideal to get a nice cross breeze blowing through your home.
If you are considering upgrading the operating style of your windows, you may be wondering what the difference is between a sliding window and a double sliding window. While both styles are guaranteed to allow fresh air to circulate throughout the house, there are a few differences to take into account as you determine what will work best for you.
If you have a spot in your house that could take advantage of increased airflow, a standard sliding window replacement may be just what you need. A popular window style for residential spaces, a sliding window is a window that opens by gliding horizontally along a top and bottom track in the window frame. Only one panel slides and the other is stationary.
A double sliding window also allows you to delight in improved airflow. However, unlike a traditional slider that opens on one side, a double slider opens on both ends of the window unit. When you wish to open your window, you can choose to open the left or right panel or both to provide you with maximum control over the ventilation in your room.
