What sort of lighting and ventilation needs does your home have? Slider windows can fulfill these requirements, whatever they may be. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of slider windows.
A Better View
First of all, larger windows provide you with a better view. Since slider windows are bigger than their double hung counterparts, you get more of an uninterrupted view through a window that also allows much more air and light to enter your home. Unlike double hung windows, slider windows are positioned horizontally, making it easier for your eyes to move in the direction indicated by the window you’re looking through.
Increased Energy Efficiency
You might think that a bigger window would cause more energy problems, and not less. However, this is not the case. Despite their size, slider windows are simple – they don’t have any complex parts. Due to their simplicity, slider windows are much easier to close securely. These windows also come insulated to improve their energy efficiency. Low-emissivity or low-E coatings provide this insulation. Gas fills and spacers increase insulation as well. All of these features will mean that your home will be cooler in the summertime and warmer in the wintertime. As we approach the end of summer and the beginning of fall, fluctuating temperatures may call for different levels of heating and cooling.
Less Maintenance Necessary
A hard to open window can discourage you from opening it, which defeats the purpose of a window. Luckily, having fewer parts mean that slider windows are easier to open. It also means that less maintenance is necessary. Once slider windows are installed properly, they can last for years before exhibiting any problems. The main sheet of glass can be detached for easy cleaning. If you decide to install a window AC unit, all you have to do is remove the glass first.
Where Can They Go?
To install a slider window, you need a horizontal opening in the side of your house. Because of how versatile this window style is, you can add it to almost any type of home. Whether it’s a mid-century modern, ranch, or colonial style home, you can find a way to include slider windows. Just be sure to choose a room where the window is easy to reach and open.
