THE BENEFITS OF OPERABLE WINDOWS


Glass Inc. operable windows have numerous benefits that can significantly improve a room. They can enhance your home's comfort, efficiency, visual appeal, and much more. We utilize premium materials, cutting-edge technologies, and modern manufacturing processes to create the most high-performance operable windows available for residential and commercial applications. In today’s post, we will review the benefits of operable windows produced by Glass Inc.

Before we begin, let's briefly touch on what operable windows are. Operable windows are windows designed to be opened and closed to allow for improved ventilation in a room.  Since they can be opened, their design is more complex than fixed windows and they require additional hardware like locking mechanisms, opening mechanisms, screens, and seals.

Operable Window Benefits


Open for Ventilation 

While there are heating and air conditioning benefits to having an airtight home, a room without an operable window can feel very stuffy, and it can also lead to mold. The best feature of operable windows is that they can be opened to improve the ventilation and air quality in a room. This helps prevent mold and even helps with allergies. Operable windows are ideal for rooms that need additional ventilation, like kitchens and bathrooms. 


Save money on HVAC 

Air conditioning and heating can be very expensive if your system is constantly running. Some of the contributing factors that can overwork an HVAC system are drafts, low-quality windows, and poor installations. Our operable windows include a high-performance thermal system that greatly improves your home's energy efficiency and makes it more environmentally friendly. The window’s thermal system helps maintain comfortable indoor temperatures while reducing heating and cooling costs. Additionally, the thermal system’s insulation prevents ice from accumulating on the outside of the windows and the windows also have a specially designed condensation removal feature. 


Quality Fitment

Another feature that makes Glass Inc.’s operable windows stand out from competitors is their high-quality fitment. Glass Inc.’s manufacturing process helps to create an airtight fitment with all of their window products. This strengthens the window's ability to maintain comfortable temperatures inside while also preventing the buildup of dust, mold, and fungi. 


Natural Light

Rooms that are poorly lit or that do not have natural sunlight can be uncomfortable for occupants. In fact, a lack of sunlight can have a direct impact on a person’s mood. According to Healthline“Exposure to sunlight is thought to increase the brain's release of a hormone called serotonin. Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused.” Installing operable windows in a office or bedroom is a great way to increase natural sunlight and improve an occupants' mood.


Safety and Security 

Operable windows are also a great safety feature because they can be used as an exit in an emergency situation like a fire or home intruder event. Our windows are available with enhanced security features that prevent and deter burglars. The windows are also lockable and available with child-safe locks.


Soundproofing

Noise pollution from neighbors, landscapers, construction workers, or traffic can be highly distracting when you are trying to work from home. Glass Inc.’s windows are ideal for these types of situations because they have excellent soundproofing capabilities. Their design helps mitigate noise from penetrating inside and they are sure to make your office or bedroom comfortable and quiet. 


Durability 

Operable windows can be a significant investment in comparison to fixed windows. It is important that your windows can stand up to the elements. With that being said, our operable windows are made from premium materials for added durability and they have excellent corrosion resistance. 


Design

Our stylish windows are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes so they can accommodate a wide range of projects. Also, customizing your windows is easy with our different material and hardware options. 


Glass Inc.'s operable windows are the premium choice for new constructions and renovations. They offer far more than the ability to be opened and closed. Our windows can improve ventilation, efficiency, comfort, security, safety, and the aesthetics of your home. When considering operable windows for your business or home the different options can be overwhelming and you may not know which style is appropriate for your project. If that be the case, contact Glass Inc. and speak with our staff. We are here to help with all of your window needs.
