The functionality of your home depends on a variety of things. Among the major components that determine how functional your home will be are the fixtures you choose. This includes things such as the roofing, the doors, and the windows. They affect not only the aesthetic appeal of your home but also its overall operational efficiency. If you are building a new home and you are finding it difficult to choose window types from the many options available, here are a few reasons you may want to consider tilt turn windows.
Ease of Operation and Cleaning
Operating your tilt turn windows is more effortless than standard windows. With only one operating handle, you can open the window in various directions. That is, depending on the position of the handle, your tilt window can act as a hopper window, a fixed window, or an inward casement window. All this is because tilt windows can tilt on the horizontal axis into your home and open on the vertical one too. In addition, regardless of how heavy or big your window sash is, it will respond easily when the handle is rotated.
Cleaning your tilt turn windows is also much easier and safer. The ability of the window to tilt and turn allows you to wash all the areas from inside the room without the need for ladders to help you clean the unreachable positions.
When assembled correctly, your turn tilt windows will offer airtight locking around the perimeter of the window. This improves the energy efficiency of the window by enhancing its thermal insulation. The multi-point locking technique of the window also makes it slightly more burglar proof than its counterparts.
The ability to tilt your tilt turn windows in a variety of angles offers you excellent control of the ventilation. For instance, when you tilt the window, you open up the sash inwards, particularly at the top. With this angle, the cool outdoor air can enter your home through the sides to assist with indoor cooling and since hot air is less dense, it can escape via the top.
With these advantages, tilt turn windows will offer you more value for your money. However, since they come with quite a number of moving parts to facilitate the tilting and turning movements, regular maintenance of these parts is key. To reduce corrosion and wear, clean and lubricate the catches and locks regularly.
