Poor indoor air quality is one of the main environmental challenges we face today. Since you spend about 90% of your time indoors, every breath you take can be hazardous.
The best way to freshen up your rooms is through natural ventilation, especially in an area where outdoor air pollution isn’t a concern. To maximize the amount of clean you can get in, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas recommends these window styles:
Bay and Bow
Bay and bow windows provide plenty of ventilation simply because they have multiple glass panels. The number of wall apertures is vital in regulating airflow. The more operating units you keep open at the same time, the more you can expel the contaminants in your indoor air.
Since they only have one sash, casement windows allow maximum ventilation. Cracking them out makes the entire openings available for admitting fresh drafts.
Although they only allow 50% of the wall aperture to let in outdoor breezes, two-sash sliding windows are generally wide. They cover lengthy openings, which are useful in ventilating any room they serve adequately.
Like sliding units, double-hung windows have two sashes, except they glide vertically. Thanks to modern technology, the raised sash of today’s products can reliably stay up. This means you can open both panels at the same time to regulate the air circulation in the room.
Picture windows would provide zero ventilation because they’re fixed. Nonetheless, pairing them with a casement or a double-hung on the side would increase your space’s airflow.
Furthermore, Renewal by Andersen of Kansas products are certified by the Scientific Certification Systems. Our windows passed the Indoor Advantage Gold certification program, which is the strictest indoor air emission standard in the country. Unlike other building materials that release a lot of toxins through a process called off-gassing, our products ensure your indoor air remains healthy over time.
