The 3 Best Window Styles for Maximum Ventilation

The 3 Best Window Styles for Maximum Ventilation

December 05, 2018

Your windows do more than just serve as static decor for the home. They also play a key role in controlling and regulating the ventilation in your home. Some window styles are better at ventilating the home than others so it’s important to pick the right style.

In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee shares three window styles that offer maximum home ventilation.

Casement Windows

This window style is a common choice for traditional and more contemporary homes. It swings open using a hand crank and the width of its swing allows more air into and out of your home. Since this window opens and locks at different angles, you have more control over the direction the air is coming in.

Double-Hung Windows

Ask any windows contractor and they’ll always recommend double hung windows if you’re looking for maximum ventilation. We agree; this particular window has a unique feature that gives you versatility on how you ventilate your home. Opening the top sash lets in warm air while the lower sash ushers in cold air. You can also open both sashes for maximum ventilation. This versatile ventilation, on top of the space-efficient size of the windows, makes it the perfect choice for smaller rooms, kitchens and bathrooms.

Sliding Windows

Also known as gliding windows, these are another window style designed for maximum ventilation. They have large window panes that slide open and admit a lot of air in. Think of them as a casement window that slides open instead of swinging out. This window style has a strong airtight seal that can have a positive impact on the energy efficiency of your home.

Hear From Our Customers

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!!!

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.
