There are a number of replacement windows available on the market. Awning windows are different from other options, since they open vertically from the bottom. The decision to use this type of window is often made based on where the windows are located in your home. This type of window is usually used in locations that are placed high up so that there is little risk of someone running into it from the outside.
Advantages of Awning Windows
- Attractive and stylish in appearance
- Provide good air ventilation
- Prevent rain from entering your home
- Good choice from a security standpoint
- Economical to buy
An awning window has hinges on the top side on its frame and opens outwards from the top. This gives your home a modern, stylish appearance.
Good Air Ventilation
You can get light and air into high places in your home, without having to compromise privacy. Awning windows can be installed in places where other options may not be able to fit.
Prevent Rain from Entering your Home
Since an awning window opens out and up from the bottom, they can provide good ventilation and light while protecting your home even during rainy weather. A traditional casement window will allow the light and air in, but will not be able to keep rain water out.
Awning windows are usually installed high up on a wall of a home and they are quite small in comparison to other styles. They are relatively secure against break-ins. This style of window is a good option if you are looking for a window for a child’s room, since it doesn’t open very far. A young child is less likely to be able to open the window and tumble out.
Economical to Buy
Awning windows are an economical choice compared to other styles. You’ll want to make sure that the brand you are looking at is energy efficient and high quality so that it will last for several years, though.
