You have many things to consider when selecting new windows and doors. One of which is whether they can improve air circulation in your home. The right window styles can help cool your home in summer and expel warm, moist air, which can cause discomfort and other problems.
Here are window styles that can improve your home’s ventilation.
One of the best windows for ventilation are casements. This style hinges on one side and swings outward to open. With casements, you have nearly complete control over ventilation because of how they open. When it’s warm, you can open them to allow breeze inside and when it’s cold, they seal tightly to minimize air leaks.
Sliding doors and windows are especially ideal for homes where space is an issue. They are a great option for areas along with patios or walkways because you can open them without creating obstructions.
Bay and Bow Windows
Bay windows consist of three side-by-side windows. The center unit is usually stationary while the sides can be hung or casement windows. They can be the focal point of a room, making them a typical sight in living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens.
Aside from beauty, double-hung windows can also improve air circulation in your home. Both of their sashes can open, allowing cool air through the bottom and pushing warm, polluted air through the top. These windows are also space-savers like sliding ones.
