As a homeowner, it’s your job to ensure clean indoor air quality at your home. To do this, you have to maintain good air circulation inside. Your windows and vents should be kept clean and efficient. It also helps if your windows encourage air circulation like the following:
1. Casement Windows
Casement windows are good for air circulation. The window’s operational sash offers maximum ventilation once completely opened. It encourages direct airflow in your home, effectively getting rid of the stale air inside. You can even place casement windows on two sides of your home to maximize ventilation.
2. Sliding Windows
Sliding windows are best for top-to-bottom ventilation inside your home. The windows also offer a wide opening, perfect for continuous airflow. They are low maintenance and easy to clean, install and operate. These benefits make sliding windows a popular choice for a lot of homeowners.
3. Double Hung Windows
Double-hung windows are the smart choice for homes with limited space inside. Maintaining proper ventilation is harder for cramp and small spaces. Fortunately, double hung windows are best in encouraging stratified airflow.
4. Bow Windows
Natural and effortless airflow is brought by bow windows. The sashes of these big windows can be easily opened all at the same time. Bow windows are perfect for areas that are low in wind activity or for homes with big interior space.
5. Bay Windows
Last on the list, but equally effective in improving air ventilation inside your home, are bay windows. They have a fixed middle glass panel with two flankers that can be opened widely. This encourages airflow in two directions.
