How You Can Get the Perfect Size for Your Window

The size of your windows is among many important decisions you’ll have to make when planning a window replacement project. To find the perfect size for your home, you’ll need to consider a few essential factors. Window World of Boston, one of the leading window installation companies in the area,  explains further in this post.

Perfect Size for Your Window

Thermal mass. Thermal mass is essentially the material’s ability to absorb, store and release heat. Some materials have a higher density than others, which means they’ll have a higher thermal mass. Some of the most common materials include concrete, bricks and tiles, as their thermal mass can increase your home’s energy efficiency and comfort, depending on the type of window and its placement in your home. For instance, if a big part of your home’s exterior is made from bricks, it’s safe to say that you have a good amount of thermal mass. If you also have north-facing windows, make sure that they have large glass areas so that you’ll be able to harness the sun’s heat.

Window orientation. If you’re already aware of which side of your house gets the most sunlight, consider installing larger windows on that side. This can be beneficial to your home because of all the natural light you’ll receive and the heat that comes with it. Of course, you’ll get better comfort and efficiency from the windows that get more shade, but they should be smaller so that your home’s interior stays naturally cool and comfortable. Discussing this with your trusted window installation contractors can also help you make an informed decision about which type of window you should install on each side of your house.

Type of window. Windows come in different types and standard size dimensions to fit most window openings. Each window type is created for a specific purpose. For example, picture windows are offered in large sizes, as they’re designed for living spaces such as family rooms and bedrooms, so you won’t normally see them in kitchen and bathroom areas. If you’re planning to replace your kitchen or bathroom windows, consider casement windows instead since they can easily be opened for ventilation.
