Window Styles That Can Increase Ventilation

The right window type can significantly increase your home’s comfort and ventilation. That’s why you should choose carefully and consult experts regarding the best options for your property. 

Window Styles

Generally, you should look for operable windows that are easy to open and close. This will make it easier for you to develop a habit of opening your windows regularly, making sure fresh air finds its way into your home.

That said, window professionals recommend getting any of these window styles to improve the airflow throughout your home and ensure indoor comfort.

Double-Hung Windows

Double-hung windows have a simple and charming design, which makes them versatile and suitable for any architectural style. Their two sashes can be opened simultaneously, allowing stale indoor air to escape through the upper sash and welcoming cool outdoor air through the bottom sash. Opening these windows during summer evenings guarantees better comfort and good air circulation in your home.

Bay Windows

Bay windows usually have a fixed larger window at the center and two smaller operable windows on both sides, introducing fresh air into your home from different angles. These windows can add square footage to a room and look great in any home. Their protruding profile allows it to catch more breeze and improve airflow inside the home. 

Casement Windows

Casement windows look elegant and timeless due to their simple design. They have a crank to open wide and catch the breeze from outside. Experts recommend opening casements at a 45-degree angle to capture cool air efficiently.
