3 Window Types for Improved Ventilation in Your Home

Apart from giving you a view and providing natural light, your windows can also be utilized as a means of added ventilation. Today’s post from Renewal by Andersen® of Quad Cities highlights the features of three operable window types that can contribute to your home’s ventilation.

Home Window Installation

Casement Windows

Casement windows are the primary style choice for tight and inaccessible places, such as bathrooms and kitchens. They can be opened outwards using only one hand. Bathrooms and kitchens, in particular, tend to get stuffy due to the activities performed in these areas. Casement windows provide much-needed ventilation to these high-traffic and high-activity areas in your home.

The use of casement windows isn’t limited to just your kitchen and bathroom. Feel free to use them in the living and dining rooms as well. Regularly check the cranks and hinges to keep your casement windows functioning optimally.

Double-Hung Windows

It’s not difficult to see why double-hung windows remain one of the most popular window options in the U.S. Double-hung windows marry form and function by providing a timeless design coupled with easy operation. There’s not a room in your home that will not benefit from the stylishness and functionality of double-hung windows.

Bow Windows

Bow windows usually feature between three to six window panels that form a gentle arch extending outward. Bow windows can be composed exclusively of operable windows like casement or double-hung windows. As with bay windows, you can also utilize the extended space created by the gentle arch of bow windows either as a reading area or additional storage space. Since they have a large glass area, they can greatly improve the ventilation in whichever area you choose to install them.
