A window is one of the many things that makes a house a home. It is indeed a necessity to make sure you choose the right one for your place–primarily, an attractive style that allows great ventilation. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Denver shares three window styles that offer good ventilation:
1. Casement Windows
These are windows attached to their frame by one or more hinges at the side, usually operated with a crank, and commonly used individually or in pairs. Because of how they open, you have almost complete control over the ventilation. Although they are popular in bathrooms and kitchens, this style can be used throughout your home, especially in a living room or dining room.
2. Double-Hung Windows
This type is one of the most common styles in every household, not necessarily because of its traditional aesthetic, but because of how it promotes air circulation. Double-hung windows allow cool air to come in through the bottom as it pushes warmth through the top.
3. Bay Windows
If you have thought of renovating your house to maximize ventilation, this is the best option for your new windows. These are a series of three side-by-side windows that project from the home’s exterior wall at an angle. A bay window, however, may require you to have a bigger space to be the focal point of a room— which normally are the kitchen, dining area or living room.
