What’s the best window style if you prefer to open them frequently?

You are doing the right thing by opening up your windows now and then. It’s good for you, and good for your home. The indoor air quality of the average home is a real health concern, because we tend to have items around that we don’t necessarily think of as harmful—everyday household cleaning and maintenance products, personal care products, and even some building materials that do, in fact, emit gases or particles, so our homes can easily get a toxic build-up of chemicals.

And we’re breathing that all the time we’re inside.

Best way to clear your home of indoor pollutants is to let the fresh air in and the bad air out. And of course you want windows that are easy to open. So if you’re in the market for replacement windows, consider sliding windows for those “fresh breeze” areas. Over a kitchen sink, for example, is a great place for a sliding window. Let the fresh air in when you’re cooking or baking or doing the dishes.

Family rooms, great rooms, and entertainment are another ideal area where open windows are appreciated. And they’re so easy to open—they move smoothly and effortlessly on their tracks. Nothing to crank, push or lift.

You get the biggest view too, because unlike double-hungs or casements, gliding replacement windows have as little frame as possible. And they combine nicely with traditional double hung styles without interrupting the style of your home

So for fresh air buffs, sliding windows bring the outdoors indoors, both in terms of ease of use and all that lovely light. Like I say on our website—they’re like a light switch for you to turn the outdoors on and off when you choose.
