Do you find that your home or workplace gets stuffy when it’s warm? Despite our lack of good weather this summer, the Quotatis office has been rather hot and uncomfortable lately.
What we could do with is some tilt and turn windows. They offer much more ventilation than typical windows.
What are tilt and turn windows?
Tilt and turn windows work in a different way to sash or casement windows. Instead of sliding up and down like a sash window or opening out and to one side like a casement window, tilt and turn windows can open horizontally or vertically simply by tilting or turning them.
You can use the handle to open the window inwards and let a small amount of air in, or open it horizontally to fully allow air into your home or office.
So what are the benefits to tilt and turn windows? There are 3 that really stand out for us.
1. They save space in small areas
Got a balcony or terrace? Tilt and turn windows are perfect for facing out onto your small outdoor space as they won’t take up any room on the balcony when you open them.
2. They’re easier and safer to clean
If you live in a flat on an upper level and don’t pay for a window cleaner, these windows are a great option for you. All you have to do to clean them is pull them inwards and use the right cleaning products on the glass. Plus, if you get uPVC frames, all you’ll have to do is wipe them clean with a damp cloth.
3. You’ll be able to enjoy the views
Since you can open tilt and turn windows inwards and wide, you’ll be able to experience the views from your home or office without any obstructions. And you’ll find that you’ll let lots more natural light into the room.
