Do you find that your home or work environment gets stuffy when it’s warm? In spite of our lack of good weather this summer, the DoubleGlazing.com office has been rather hot recently.
What we could do with is some tilt and turn windows. They offer much more ventilation than common windows.
What are tilt and turn windows?
Tilt and turn windows work in a different way to sash or casement windows. Rather than sliding up and down like a sash window or opening out and to one side like a casement window, tilt and turn windows can open horizontally or vertically just by tilting or turning them.
You can utilise the handle to open the window inwards and let some air in, or open it horizontally to totally enable air into your office or home.
So exactly what are the advantages to tilt and turn windows? There are 3 that really stick out for us.
1. They conserve space in small areas
Got a balcony or terrace? Tilt and turn windows are ideal for facing out onto a small outdoor area as they will not use up any room on the balcony when you open them.
2. They’re simpler and much safer to clean
If you live in a flat on an upper level and don’t spend money on a window cleaner, these windows are a great option for you. All you have to do to clean them is pull them inwards and use the best cleaning products on the glass. Plus, if you get uPVC frames, all you’ll have to do is wipe them clean with a damp cloth.
3. You’ll have the ability to enjoy the views
Since you can open tilt and turn windows inwards and wide, you’ll be able to experience the views from your office or home with no obstructions. And you’ll discover that you’ll let lots more natural light into the room .
