When homeowners invest in new windows, they often put a lot of thought into material, style and energy efficiency. One factor that sometimes gets overlooked is the amount of ventilation the window can provide.
In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod reveals the best windows for improving your home’s natural ventilation.
Double-hung windows are a mainstay in many American homes. These windows feature a timeless look that enhances your home’s overall aesthetic. Thanks to the double sash design, double-hung windows are also great for enhancing your home’s ventilation. Cool outdoor air enters through the bottom sash, while warm, stale indoor air exits from the top sash away from your home, improving your indoor air quality and ventilation.
Sliding windows don’t provide as much ventilation as double-hung or casement windows, but they can still be a good option. They work particularly well in small spaces, where larger window styles might not be practical. If you’re not sure whether sliding windows are right for you, don’t hesitate to consult with your window company.
If you want to have a versatile window that maximizes your home’s ventilation, then casement windows are a great choice. These windows have two panes that hinge on one side and open outwards with the help of a crank. You can control the amount of ventilation by adjusting the angle of the window opening.
