Windows are usually such a seamless part of your house, you probably don’t give them much thought on most days. If you do notice them, it could be because they are not doing their job as well as they should. Having the right windows installed can make a big difference, but there are many different types to choose from. The type of windows you decide on can affect the look of your rooms, your energy bills and more.
This is probably the most well-known style of windows. Double hung windows feature two large frames of glass that slide up and down in a track. It is a common style for both traditional and modern homes and they have several benefits. They are easy to maintain, they are safe and easy to operate (as they do not project outward at all), and they provide excellent ventilation options with the ability to open one or both sashes.
Casement windows are also a common choice. These windows have hinges mounted at the top and bottom of one side, and they crank open (pivoting like a door). They are very energy-efficient as they seal tightly and they offer great views since it is only one single sash.
Picture windows are fixed, and cannot be opened and closed. The main purpose of a picture window is to provide access to a great view. Although they cannot be opened, they do allow in lots of natural light which can generate extra heat during the winter months, and they can add incredible style to the right room. These are also the most energy-efficient windows, since they are sealed around the edges, which helps eliminate air from getting through.
