The Best Window Styles for Better Home Ventilation

In addition to preventing moisture intrusion and promoting daylighting, our windows also provide air circulation and ventilation. The right window style is crucial to ensuring you get the most out of the outdoor air passing through your indoor living spaces. Let your trusted window contractor share some of the best window styles for better air circulation and ventilation in your home.

Bay window with seating

Double-Hung Windows

These windows offer a classic and timeless look that matches the aesthetics of traditional homes. The way they operate also means they are great for natural ventilation. Simply open the top and bottom sashes at the same time. This allows warm indoor air to escape through the top opening while cool outdoor air enters your home through the bottom.

Casement Windows

These windows are a staple offering in any window company because of their ubiquity. They are a perfect choice for homes that require adequate ventilation. Because they swing open outward, you have the choice to open them fully or partially depending on your needs.

Sliding Windows

When double-hung windows lean on the more traditional aesthetic, sliding windows are well-suited for modern and contemporary homes. These windows also have sleek, narrow frames to make way for large glass areas. But like their double-hung counterparts, sliding windows also provide ventilation. The sash slides sideways along a horizontal track, which means they work well in spaces where casement windows aren’t practical.

Bay and Bow Windows

These windows encompass a large section of the wall, allowing for a beautiful panoramic view of the outdoors seen from different angles and copious amounts of sunlight. Since they are composed of grouped windows, you have the option to open each one at the same time to air out your indoors.
