Summer can be a tad bit overwhelming during particularly scorching heatwaves. As a homeowner, you can counter this with wise design. As the area’s most trusted home improvement contractor, Exterior Source recommends improving ventilation through quality replacement windows. Fortunately, we have just the right windows that will help you avoid feeling the effects of the hot and humid season.

Improve Your Home's Ventilation

The following window types are the perfect options to boost ventilation at home and beat the intense summer heat.

Casement Windows

Easy to maintain and energy-efficient, casement windows are also a great choice for homeowners looking to boost ventilation. They are an appealing window option that comes with a lot of benefits. They are easy to open any time you feel the need to get some air into your room. They are perhaps the top option for homeowners living in areas that experience hot and humid summers. Our casement windows feature a crank that’s easy to use, so you can just open the sash to give way to some ventilation from the outdoors.

Bay and Bow Windows

The added value of bay and bow windows alone makes them great replacement windows. It’s their sheer size, however, that makes them such a popular choice among homeowners. They give more than ample ventilation and make homes much more appealing with the views they offer. Any combination of windows that comprise bay and bow styles are sure to allow you to open a few section, letting in some cool air to your room during a hot summer day.

Sliding Windows

Low-maintenance and affordable. These are the key features that make our sliding windows a good window replacement choice. And just like the previous window types we discussed, they also let your home breathe with ample fresh air. Just a simple slide of a unit and you can be sure that the humid room atmosphere common during the season won’t be much of a problem. Our sliding windows even have the unique Tilt-n-slide™ feature, making it great for both ventilation and easy cleaning.
