When it comes to windows, it is highly essential to make functionality a top priority along with architectural beauty. Choosing the best styles that will allow for excellent ventilation and airflow can significantly enhance the air quality in your property as it increases your comfort level. To help you with your future window replacement purchase, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares styles that offer good ventilation:
- Casement Windows. Commonly used individually or in pairs, these are windows attached to their frame by one or more hinges at the side, usually operated with a crank. Because of how they open, you have complete control over the ventilation. Moreover, this style can be used throughout your home especially in your bathroom or kitchen area.
- Horizontal Sliding Windows. It is important to note that a slider opens with the one sash gliding left and right. For homes with limited indoor and outdoor opening space, sliding windows are one of the ideal choices. Because these are easier to operate than crank-style replacement windows, some people find them more appealing when looking for ventilation-friendly windows.
- Bay Windows. If you have thought of renovating your house to maximize ventilation, experts suggest 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. However, bay windows may require you to have a bigger space to be the focal point of a room— which normally are the dining area or living room.
