Whether you are looking to replace your existing windows or are building a home from the ground up, you are probably finding out that there is a huge variety of window options available in today’s market. While classic casement or double-hung windows are the most popular window replacement options, installing picture windows offers its own unique advantages. In today’s post, your friends over at Renewal by Andersen® of Denver explores just three of those advantages to make a strong case for choosing picture windows.
1. Natural Light
Because of a picture window’s structural simplicity, they are usually made larger than other types of windows which means they let in more natural light. Letting in more natural light reduces the need for artificial lighting and is a great way to save a few bucks on electricity bills. Natural light is also your main source of Vitamin D which is an essential nutrient.
2. Breathtaking Views
As the name suggests, picture windows act as a picture frame with your view from the outside serving as the artwork. If you happen to own a home with a breathtaking view of the outside, then you should definitely consider picture windows for your window replacement project.
3. Energy Efficiency
Also called fixed windows because they cannot be opened and are fixed in place, picture windows are considered to be one of the most energy-efficient window options especially when combined with insulated glass. Other window types with complicated mechanisms are prone to drafts. With a picture window, this isn’t really a problem since they are stationary and creates a tight seal for your home.
