Windows are traditionally designed to allow natural light and air into your home. But they come in different styles, and not all of them can effectively increase your access to natural ventilation. If you want to improve your home ventilation, here are your best choices:
Double Hung Windows
With their neat and simple design, double hung windows grace millions of homes across the country. They are recognizable by their two operable sashes, which allow cooling breezes to enter your home. Just open both sashes at the same time, and warm, stale air will exit your rooms via the top sash while healthier, cooler air comes in through the bottom sash. Because double hung windows reduce your home’s humidity levels, they eliminate the potential for mold and mildew growth in your living space and ensure improved indoor air quality.
Unlike double hung windows, casements operate by swinging out, creating a wide opening where fresh air can enter. In fact, you can even angle their sashes to better direct cooling breezes into your home. Casement windows are a great option in rooms that use a considerable amount of water, such as the kitchen, laundry room or bath. They prevent moisture buildup in these spaces while also getting rid of leftover food smells and cleaning odors.
Do you want a window that can maximize your viewing area while naturally cooling your home? Then, you should consider sliding windows. They’re basically operable picture windows – their expansive glass can frame outdoor views beautifully, and their wide opening allows fresh air to stream easily into your living space.
