Tilt and turn windows are, without a doubt, the most practical windows that you can choose for your home, and it isn’t hard to see why they have become so popular with our Toronto customers. They offer a range of features that make them an all-in-one solution for any homeowner or prospective homebuyer.
These are not the flimsy, rattling windows that you remember from your grandmother’s house. These tilt and turn windows are generally made from much sturdier and more energy efficient vinyl. Vinyl windows are much better at insulating your home, look more stylish, and give your home a more modern feel.
The utility of these windows cannot be understated. They offer several different configurations that will suit any possible situation that you may encounter in your home.
The Three Best Things About Tilt and Turn Windows: Their Positions!
First, we have the closed position; not the most exciting of the bunch, but just as important as any other. Closed, these windows offer you protection from the elements, pollution, intruders, noise, and everything else you want to keep out of your home. But good vinyl windows are not just about keeping things out; what they keep in is just as important. The closed position offers you savings on heating and cooling because we all know what Toronto’s seasons are like: One day you’re sitting on your front porch with your family, the next you’re waking up at six in the morning to shovel out your car.
Next, we come to the most unique feature: the tilted position. This is the position that old-fashioned slide windows just can’t hope to recreate. The window opens at an angle, tilting inward at the top and leaving the bottom sealed, to create the perfect ventilation system. Cooler air flows in around the sides of the window while the hotter air, trapped at the top of a room, flows out through the opened top.
Finally, we have the most exciting part of tilt and turn windows: the turned position. The average window in a home leaves something to be desired. Often it’s difficult to open and even once it has been, it rarely opens to more than halfway. Tilt and turn windows feature an easy-to-use handle that unlocks when turned parallel to the floor. They’re not only incredibly simple to open, but open 100% of the way. Why would you accept anything less? Apart from providing excellent air flow through your home, this 180° opening allows for easy cleaning and maintenance.
Tilt and turn windows look great in your home, are easy to use, offer you a variety of positions to meet your needs, will increase the value of your home, and will save you money on heating and cooling in the long run, even if you never sell. They are a truly convenient and cost-effective way for you to upgrade your current home or to prepare your new home for a life of comfort.
