When your home is due for replacement windows in La Jolla, CA, you might dread the process because yes, it’s an investment. And yes, it’s messy and takes some time and effort. However, once the process is complete, you’ll love the energy efficiency and beauty your home has. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to make changes to your current window layout for the better of your home. What kind of changes? How about adding a picture window! Picture windows bring a lot to a home. Here are a few things you would get with this addition:
More Natural Light
Most homeowners want more, not less, natural light and when you put in a picture window as you replace old windows, you’ll definitely get more of the light you want. You don’t have to worry about letting in heat, either, because you can get low-E glass on the picture window, which blocks the heat of the sun, but lets the light come through. The natural light can improve your family’s mood, make rooms more welcoming and larger in appearance, and even help you save energy because you won’t need as much artificial lighting.
Increased Energy Efficiency
You know any replacement window you put into your house is going to increase your energy efficiency because of the new technology involved with those windows. But there are certain window styles that improve efficiency more than others. And none of them can beat the efficiency of picture windows. Picture windows don’t open and close, so they have no moving parts. That means there’s nowhere for air to leak in and out, which means your energy efficiency around that window it top notch.
Enjoy The View
There are plenty of great views in California and if you have one outside your home, you should be able to enjoy it. Having a picture window gives you an uninterrupted view of what’s going on outside. Even if you had windows there before, replacing a bank of windows in any style with a picture window will open up that view.
What About Ventilation?
The only downside to a picture window is that you can’t get the ventilation you might want because the window doesn’t open or close. But there are ways around that. Perhaps you have plenty of other windows in the room that do open so you can ventilate with them. Or, you could add windows beside, above, or below the picture window so you can get the ventilation you want in addition to the natural light and view.
