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.

"Their workers who installed the windows were excellent. Our experience with the sales rep was pleasant. He did not pressure us. He made suggestions that saved us money."

"I would give everyone involved in the whole process a 10 out of 10. With the exception of the window installation crew. They get an 11 out of 10. I can't express in words what an excellent job they did. They went above and beyond."

"Although it is a process and doesn't happen overnight the wait is worth the end results. A Representative will come to your home and walk you through the entire process. It does take a few weeks from the time they send someone to your home to personally measure your windows to the time the factory specifically custom cuts your windows and ships them out. However, the end result is overwhelmingly satisfactory. The crew sent to install them were professional, cleaned up after the job was completed and did the job in half the time they thought it would take. Highly recommend!"
