Windows don’t just bring natural light into your home; these fixtures also let in air and improve its quality through circulation. Open windows allow fresh outside air in while expelling stale indoor air. For your next window replacement project, take into account ways to maximize ventilation when making your selection.
Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle, your local window and door contractor in this area, discusses the window styles that are best for providing maximum ventilation for your home.
A timeless and elegant window style, double-hung windows are a good choice if you want to restore or renovate your home with historical accuracy in mind. Most units have a lower sash that can be lifted up along a vertical track to initiate airflow. Our double-hung windows, however, have both an operable upper and lower sash which can be opened at the same time for better ventilation.
With fewer muntins and plenty of glass area for a clear, this window style is ideal if you want to frame a spectacular outdoor view. Our casement windows have hinges on the side, giving you free rein to open the sashes up as wide as you’d like. Open them fully or adjust them at an angle to catch a side breeze.
Also known within Renewal by Andersen® as gliding windows, this window style can add a modern touch to your home. Like our double-hung windows, these units operate smoothly and easily. In this case, allowing for side-to-side ventilation. You can even choose if you want both sashes to be operable, or just one.
