Video Blog: 3 Reasons to Get Bay & Bow Windows

Bow Windows

The best windows feature more than one benefit and feature. Considering that they’re a great combination of different window types, bay and bow windows fit that bill exactly. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois looks at three reasons why our bay and bow windows make for a great replacement option.

1. They Provide Two Essential Functions

Most windows provide for one of two functions: illumination and ventilation. Which is more prominent depends on the style of replacement windows that you choose. With bay and bow windows, you get multiple windows that perform either function all at once. Bay windows combine a large picture windows flanked by casement or double-hung windows. Bow windows bring together several casement windows. Both of these windows types bring in natural lighting and ventilation at the same time.

2. They’re Energy-Efficient

Since our windows are made with Fibrex® frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass panes, they regulate heat effectively. This leaves heat where you need it the most: outside during warm months and inside during cold months. That leaves you less dependent of air conditioning and heating, which then leads to monthly energy savings. This effect is accentuated by multiple windows brought together. It also makes for a comfortable setup.

3. They’re Versatile

On top of all that, bow and bay windows, open you up to a great deal of creativity. Given their natural curvature, you can set them up to be sitting or reading nook. All you need are a few cushions and throw pillows to make it happen. Turn the space into an area where you socialize or relax at the end of a stressful day. It you’re worried about the sun’s rays harming your skin, our SmartSun™ option effectively filters UV light and protects your furnishings as well.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
