As with any other homeowner, you want your bedroom to be a cozy space where you can enjoy some peace and quiet. Some of the things that can help you maximize the beauty and comfort of your personal space are windows. When choosing windows for your bedroom, you have to consider a lot of things to ensure they can benefit you in many ways.
Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle, the premier provider of top-quality replacement windows and replacement patio doors in the region, shares are few factors to consider when choosing new units.
- Natural Lighting – Increased natural light in the home offers plenty of advantages for your health such as boosting your immune system, focus, and sleep quality. Make sure your bedroom has ample sunlight by considering the sun’s orientation. You can also use windows to capture your outdoor views, giving your room a beautiful backdrop. Picture windows and other styles with expansive glass areas are ideal for this.
- Energy Efficiency – Most windows today come with energy-efficient features. For example, all our replacement windows have Fibrex® frames and High Performance™ Low-E4® glass that help protect against energy loss, while still admitting abundant daylight. By keeping your home weathertight through these windows, you can maintain your room’s comfort without overworking your HVAC system and ramping up your energy bills.
- Building Codes – Your room’s windows should adhere to local and international building codes. Ideally, bedrooms must have one window that allows egress in case of an emergency. This window should be at least 24 inches tall and 20 inches wide and must be installed 44 inches from the ground. Additionally, it must have a net clear opening of at least five square feet.
