What Are the Best Windows for Ventilation?

Best Windows for VentilationPleasant, sunny days have a way of making you want to open up all the windows in your home and enjoy a refreshing cross breeze. So when it comes time for a window replacement, you probably want to find a style that allows for good ventilation. If you’re looking to create a more refreshing atmosphere in your home, consider investing in:

Casement Windows

Few window styles channel bracing breezes through your living spaces quite like casement windows. A large part of this comes from the design—casement windows have hinges on the sides and swing outwards like a door. This allows them to capture passing winds when open, funneling those bracing breezes into your living spaces for you to enjoy.

Double-Hung Windows

Double-hung windows boast a unique design, with two operable sashes that slide up from the bottom of the frame and down from the top of the frame. What’s more, you can slide both sashes of a double-hung window to the center of the frame to open it from the top and bottom at the same time.

It’s this final configuration that offers the most benefit in terms of ventilation. Warm air rises, and when a double-hung window is opened from the top this air will escape the home instead of heating things up indoors. The resulting loss of air pressure sucks cooler air indoors from the bottom of the window, naturally improving temperatures in your living spaces.

Awning Windows

When it comes to improving ventilation in rooms where privacy is necessary—like bathrooms—or where space is tight—like kitchens—awning windows offer exceptional benefits. These short windows possess a hinge along the top of the frame that allows them to swing outwards like their namesake. And while they may not catch as many cross breezes as casement windows, they do possess one major benefit: You can leave awning windows open during an afternoon rainstorm and enjoy the cooler temperatures.

Of course, if you’re looking to maximize ventilation after a window replacement, it helps to partner with America’s No. 1 remodeler: Dreamstyle Remodeling. Contact us today to get started.
