When installing new windows in your home, it is important to check out all of your options. Windows will allow light into your home and keep air out. So what kind of windows will you choose for your home? Read on to find out your options!
Casement windows are easily operated without requiring upward force to open. These windows open outward to allow air into your home. Hinged on the right or left, casement windows are opened by a crank mechanism.
Double-hung windows operate with two mobile sashes that can move up or down. Having an opening at the top and bottom of the window allows warm air leave through the top and cooler air to sink to the bottom.
The same shapes as double-hung, single-hung windows only allow the bottom sash to move to let air into your home. They are typically less expensive and they require less reaching than double-hung windows.
These windows are easily opened or shut with a push or pull of a handle and operate on a hinge at the top of the window. Awning windows are great for rainy climates because they don’t allow rain in.
Similar to single- and double-hung windows, sliding windows have mobile sashes that move horizontally along a track to allow air into the home.
Bay and Bow Windows
These two windows protrude from your home’s exterior. A bay window is made up of one picture window with two smaller frames set at an angle on each side. A bow window has many different panels of the same width that create a rounded effect. Either of these windows is great for flooding the room with natural light and providing beautiful views of your landscape.
These windows will add light, energy efficiency, and beauty to your home. Whether you are changing your windows completely or installing new windows and siding, your home will look better than ever when you call Absolute Home Solutions!
