When choosing windows for your home, it’s important to consider the best styles that will allow for proper airflow and ventilation. Not only will this improve the quality of your indoor air, but also boost your home’s energy efficiency and overall comfort due to the all-natural cooling. Here are some of the best windows for ventilation.
- Bay and Bow Windows
Bay windows are three windows forming a single unit, featuring one larger, fixed window in between two smaller, operable windows. Bow windows, on the other hand, have three or more windows, but the whole structure is rounded. These popular window styles catch breezes from different directions, allowing you to maximize ventilation along with natural light and views.
- Casement Windows
Traditional casement windows are ideal for improving ventilation. This window style is hinged on one side and swings outward. You can crank them open to catch a breath of wind or open them fully to draw air in during scorching summer days. Casements can also capture side breezes, which is something conventional double-hung windows don’t do often. Since good-quality casements are firmly sealed, they will not develop air leaks and, therefore, further enhance your home’s energy efficiency.
- Horizontal Sliding Windows
A horizontal 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. Since sliders are easier to operate than crank-style windows, some people find them more appealing when looking for ventilation-friendly windows.
