Window Replacement Options for Better Daylighting

Daylighting is easily one of the best things you can do to improve your home. Natural light doesn’t just keep the indoors bright during daytime but also helps reduce energy consumption by allowing you to not rely on artificial lighting 24/7. Check out our window replacement options that can help you bring more natural light into your home.

Window Replacement Options for Better Daylighting

Picture Window

A picture window has the most straightforward design out of all your daylighting options, but it gets the job done. A simple design means it can afford to be big without developing mechanical issues. With low-E glass panels, a picture window can provide the most natural light while minimizing the amount of solar heat that passes through it.

Casement Window

Casement windows are also some of the largest replacement windows you can get. Aside from letting in plenty of natural light, you can open them to let cool fresh air in your home if things are getting too hot for comfort. A casement window can provide more than enough natural lighting for a medium-sized room.

Sliding Window

You’ll often find sliding windows in more modern-themed homes because of their simple design. They provide ventilation unlike picture windows, but they offer more insulation than casement windows when fully shut. Combine a high-quality sliding window with the right thermostat setting and you can keep a room cool the entire day without consuming too much electricity.

Double-Hung Windows

Double-hung windows may not be the largest options available, but what they lack in size they make up for in versatility. Double-hung windows can fit almost anywhere; if you need an area with natural lighting, you can bet that double-hung windows are a good option. For a more unified look in your home, consider having a general contractor like us install double-hung windows throughout your space.
