Sash windows have been around for many years. You may even have some in your home and not have even realized what they are named. These windows are made of two parts. There is a top part and a bottom part. The top part moves downward and the bottom part moves upward.
You may want to consider getting these windows installed in your home if you don’t have them already. The window is superior in controlling the direction of breeze from outside of the home. This can translate to considerable savings when it comes to cooling your home.
When used in conjunction with ceiling fans these windows can simulate the power of an air conditioner. This is done by being able to control where the breeze comes from; either the top or the bottom, and having the fan set in summer position. It is possible to create a cross breeze that will cool the entire house.
This affect is simulated as the air is pushed and carried by the fans from one room to another. This will create very powerful cross drafts that will continue to circulate. This can make the use of an air conditioner less needed until the really hot months without a breeze.
Many people that are going green in their homes have refit with these windows. That is because running the air is not good for the environment. This method of simulating air conditioning uses only a tenth of the electricity of an air conditioner.
Cleaning these windows is a breeze. The best versions allow for tilting. This makes it very easy to clean the outside of a window without having to climb a ladder. This will save you a lot of time. If you are use to having to bring out the pressure washer to get the top windows then this could be an option to eliminate that unnecessary waste of water.
If you are one of the lucky or smart people that already have sash windows then pat yourself on the back. If you have some that are older, then consider having them upgraded. Having the windows installed should be painless. Locate a professional window installer and let them know what you are looking for. There are plenty to choose from. Some have single pane glass for cheaper costs and some have double pane.
