Improve Your Home's Ventilation With Replacement Windows

by Lucas Cox

If the air in your home seems stale, stuffy, or overall unclean, replace your windows soon. Although most homeowners rely on their cooling systems to improve the air quality in their homes, windows can also affect a home's air quality. The right windows can help ventilate your home in the spring and summer. Learn how replacement windows can improve the ventilation in your home below.

Why Do You Need Replacement Windows?

If you live in a mild or moderate region of the United States, you may open your windows to allow fresh, cool air into your home during the year. Although opening your windows can improve the air quality in your home and reduce your cooling expenses each month, it may not prevent outdoor contaminants from entering your living space. Your current windows may not possess the right features to ventilate your home properly.

Your home's windows should be able to remove heat from your home as well as introduce fresh, cool air into it during the day. Most homes come with single- or double-hung windows in them. Both types of windows come with frames that sit directly inside the wall cavities of a home. You can only open the windows by raising or lowering their sashes. If your home is quite large or spacious, the air flowing through the windows may not be enough to ventilate or improve the airflow through your home properly.

If you do have single- or double-hung windows in your home, consider replacing them with something better soon. 

What Type of Replacement Windows Should You Buy?

Window installation companies offer a wide range of replacement windows to customers today, including casement windows and bay windows. Casement windows come with unique sashes that open outward from the home. The position of the sashes allows fresh air to enter the home and stale air to circulate out of it.

Bay windows project outward from the home's outer walls. The windows normally come with multiple frames and sashes that allow you to pull large quantities of air into the home. You can close one or more of the sashes to control the airflow into your home whenever you need to do so. 

Both types of residential replacement windows above make great additions to your home. But to find the most effective windows for your needs, you must reach out to an installation company. An installation company can examine your house and help you find replacements that work best for it.
