Know Your Window Types to Help Get It Right.
Single Hung Windows
A single hung window has the top sash fixed in place (only the bottom sash can open). Thus, they are generally more energy efficient (fixed top sash) and more affordable.
Double Hung Windows
A double hung window offers the flexibility to open both top and bottom sashes (even at the same time). As a result, they offer more ventilation and functionality, but can cost more than single hung.
A casement window has the sash hinged on the side and opens either to the left or the right. They can offer large, uninterrupted expanse of glass and ventilation, and are more airtight that most windows when closed.
A slider window functions similar to a double hung window but opens horizontally. Providing a wider more uninterrupted view.
An awning window is hinged at the top and opens outward. This allows air to flow up and into the room while keeping out any rain that may fall.
A picture window is fixed in place. Offering more uninterrupted views (with no sashes) and high energy efficiency since it cannot be opened or closed.
Bay or Row Windows
Bay or row windows provide a three-dimensional effect. Offering more space, light and views to a home.
Skylight windows are a great way to bring more natural light and fresh air into a room. And new innovations make them exceptionally weathertight and convenient to open/close with various shading options.
This involves the glass and not the window type. These windows have a very thin outer coating of titanium dioxide on the glass. Which means that it keeps the glass clean of organic (carbon-based) dirt using both sunlight and rain. But not every window manufacturer offers it.
