If you’re in the process of replacing the windows on your home with new, more energy-efficient windows, then you might want to take a moment or two to consider changing from your old window style and installing gliding windows instead. Though not in any way a revolutionary new design—Kansas windows have utilized the gliding window design since at least the 18th century—there are clear benefits to choosing gliding windows over the more common double-hung style of window.
First off, because of gliding windows’ compact construction, they are admirably suited to just about any room in your home. Operating on a sliding track, gliding windows are easy to operate and can be easily adjusted to let in just the amount of air you are in the mood for, from a slight trickle of air, to all the effects of a full-blown breeze.
Gliding windows are also durable and require little maintenance. With mechanical parts limited to the wheels in the window panes that slide along the window tracks, it is rare for gliding doors to deteriorate to the point where professional service and replacement are necessary. This durability, coupled with the simplicity of the design, contribute to the ease with which gliding windows can be cared for. Though a little care should be taken in handling the potentially-heavy window panes, gliding windows can easily be removed and replaced from the window tracks, allowing them to be cleaned from within your home with little or no hassle.
