Thinking about replacing your windows this summer? If so, have you thought about the window style you’re going to choose?
If you’re still undecided, Jones & Associates, the leading installer of energy saving windows in Lubbock, TX and the surrounding areas, can help. In this article, we’ll be talking about what a slider window is, what its features and benefits are, and why you should consider installing it in your home.
Q1: What is a slider window?
These are units that can be opened or closed by sliding horizontally across the framing, hence the name. Sleek and modern-looking with narrow frames and a wide glass area, sliders are typically used in contemporary homes to brighten up or ventilate a room. They can be installed singly or in groups, depending on the kind of wall space you have.
Q2: What are the advantages of installing one?
Firstly, a slider window doesn’t have springs and pulleys that wear or fail over time. This makes it more durable than conventional windows. Because it has fewer components than other windows styles, maintenance is also comparatively easier.
Secondly, it is easy to use. You can easily open it with a simple release of the latch and a gentle tug. Closing requires the same minimal effort.
Thirdly, a slider comes in a variety of window glazing options, many of which can improve insulation and energy efficiency indoors. It can help reduce your energy bills all year round.
Finally, many sliding units have a bigger glass space than other window styles. Positioned strategically within the home, these units can frame your outdoor views very nicely. They can also help in brightening up a room by allowing more natural light to enter. If these are the things you’re looking for in a window then your best bet is a slider unit.
