Tips for Choosing the Right Window Size for Your Home

Have you found the best windows for your home yet? When choosing windows, keep in mind that aside from color and style, you also need to consider the size. While there is no formula for it, you should go for a window size that meets building codes and won’t clash with your home’s architecture.

Tips for Choosing the Right Window Size for Your Home

Read on for tips on choosing the right window size.

Take Note of Orientation

Choosing the right sizes of units for your window and door replacement can help you save on heating and cooling costs. In the winter, larger windows in the north can help with heating. Meanwhile, south-facing windows should be smaller to prevent heat loss during the cooler months and minimize heat gain in summer. East- and west-facing windows should also be on a smaller scale to keep rooms from getting too hot in the warm months.

Other Things to Consider

When selecting windows, make sure that the sills are low enough so you can still see the outside even when you’re sitting. For rooms with high ceilings, the windows should be tall enough for a balanced look. Your windows may require safety or tempered glass if the glass is too close to the floor.

Moreover, there should be enough space above the units for curtain rods and other window treatments. You must choose the length and width of units based on their proportion to the other features of your home, both in the interior and exterior.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
