Leaving your windows open for hours at a time is one of our favorite parts of Summer. That ventilation can do wonders, helping you to maintain a home full of fresh air and to use your home cooling system less frequently. With the right window you’ll catch every summer breeze. Here are a few examples of windows that offer added ventilation:
Double Hung Windows
With two sashes, double hung windows allow for double the ventilation offered by single hung windows. They allow you to open both sections of the window, providing a wider opening for the summer breeze. And with new fiberglass screens with built in memory retention, you won’t have to worry about any pesky insects.
Sliding windows also feature two panels and make it easy to create ventilation if and when you need it. Sliding windows offer the best of both worlds. With the touch of a finger you can open and close sliding windows to allow fresh air into your home and to trap cold air within.
Sleek and stylish, casement windows allow for easy ventilation in tight spaces. Casement windows can be installed in any room of your home, helping to bring ventilation to areas that need it the most, like the kitchen or bathroom. Casement windows are often grouped with other window styles, creating a larger ventilation area.
Awning windows allow for ventilation in any weather. When open, the top window panel creates an awning that prevents rain water from entering your home. That means you’ll be able to fill your home with fresh air and that wonderful smell of summer rain without having to worry about dangerous water damage.
It is important to remember the importance of a quality screen when we’re talking about summer ventilation. Open windows can also bring all kinds of insects and bugs, Which makes it essential that the new replacement windows you install now come equipped with quality screens for later. Rescom windows are available with modern, finely woven screens that keep the insects at bay, are practically transparent and won’t impede your view.
