Finding the Right Window Placement: Things to Consider

Finding the Right Window Placement: Things to Consider

October 10, 2018

Your windows are not just there to protect you from the elements and to ventilate your home. They are also responsible for bringing light indoors and capturing the best views. With all these elements considered, choosing the right placement is vital, especially when finding the right replacement windows.

Finding the Right Window Placement: Things to Consider

Here are things to consider when it comes to window placement.

Taking Advantage of Sunlight and Wind

The orientation of your home to the sun and wind is something to account for during window placement. When you want natural lighting and ventilation at the same time, choose the best window style that will take advantage of these natural forces.

For instance, you can place a double hung window or any operable window in an area facing the direction of the wind. In addition, look for parts of your home where the sun shines and also where it doesn’t. Take note of the seasons, however, as the position of the sunrise and sunset varies as the year progresses.

Framing the Views

Sometimes, windows are effective in capturing the outdoor scenery, making them the focal point of any room in your home. Whether the view is an ideal one or not, the right window can be positioned to utilize focus on the best sightline while obstructing the less desirable ones.

In this instance, the suitable fixtures you should consider are picture windows. They are non-operable, which means they can’t be opened or closed. Despite this, they have large glass areas and narrow frames to help highlight your outdoors.

Hear From Our Customers

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
