3 Common Window Styles And Their Ventilation Capabilities

Jul 14, 2017

Different window types are able to let natural light in and keep air circulating properly. Windows also define the exterior appearance of your property. Choose the right one and you’ll not only have a better-looking home, but also a cooler one.

Window Styles

Here are window types to consider when you want to make home improvements or changes.

  1. Casement Type

Casement windows are one of the most recognizable because homeowners can open it to allow air and light into their houses. When you close this window, it seals the inside and outside, reducing energy costs because it improves energy efficiency. This is easy to use because of its sliding mechanism which bears the weight of the actual window.

This type is good for ventilation; if you want to let air in, simply open the window and if you want to keep it out and stay cool or warm, close it. The ideal locations to install this type are above counters and cabinets, or even basements.

       2. Double Hung Windows

Double hung windows are great mainstays in most home styles, but the structure of this type means you can only open these halfway. However, it takes up less space among other types of windows. These are easy to fix and clean because of its small size.

While it does restrict airflow, you can use this same property to ventilate; you can leave a space at the top and bottom—one for intake, and the other as an exit.

       3. Bay Windows

Bay windows are an ideal fit for modern design homes because they provide visual appeal and practical use. These provide extra shelf space, a good framed view of the outdoors and allow air to flow in and out seamlessly. You can also choose to integrate double hung or casement windows with this design.
