The Best Windows That Can Help Improve Home Ventilation

Choosing replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen® of Long island can improve your home’s indoor air quality. Together with our parent company, Andersen Corporation, we’re the only window brands to receive the Indoor Advantage Gold™ certification from the Scientific Certification Systems. Our responsibly manufactured windows and doors meet the country’s stringent standards for air emission. After installation, expect to breathe fresh air and not harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released by many building products.

Using windows for ventilation

An integral part of ensuring a healthy indoor environment is choosing the right window style that can provide adequate home ventilation. The following are three of the best windows that can help you in that regard:

Double-Hung Windows

This particular window style may not maximize wall apertures for ventilation, but it can provide adequate air circulation by opening the upper and lower sashes at the same time. Moist indoor air escapes outdoors through the top panel, while fresh outdoor air enters your home through the bottom one. Thanks to this smart design, proper ventilation can be achieved with just one double-hung window unit.

Sliding Windows

Like double-hung windows and sliding patio doors, this window style has two staggered sashes that can be opened fully or partially depending on your home’s ventilation needs. Since they are a great fit in short walls, these windows can make the smallest of rooms feel airier and more open.

Casement Windows

If you want more control over the amount of ventilation required for your home, then this window style is for you. Comprising a single sash, these replacement window units allow entire wall openings available to let fresh air and expel stale air. While a single opening is enough to invite breezes, casement windows are worth placing on opposite walls to promote cross-ventilation.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
