Window Styles that Add Light and Ventilation to Your Home

Windows offer more than just visual appeal for your home. They can provide natural light and ventilation that can help you cut back on energy costs. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois offers window styles that can enhance both your home’s appeal and utility.

Bow and Bay Windows

Both these window styles add extra floor space to your house. These windows protrude on the exterior wall, creating a small shelf space inside. They also provide a broader view of the outside and allow more light to enter the home.

When installing a bow or bay window in Champaign, IL, it’s best to consider the type of house you own. Bow windows are more suited to Victorian style homes, while bay windows complement modern homes better. You can be sure that our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois will ensure a perfect window installation.

Double Hung Windows

Double hung windows in Galesburg, IL, offer a classic and simple appeal, making them a popular option today. These windows feature a top and bottom half. You can lower the top sash to allow ventilation while keeping the bottom half closed. This ensures greater safety against things falling out of the window. Although you can open both halves, only one can be opened at any given time.

At Renewal by Andersen of Central Illinois, we offer a variety of excellent windows, including double hung, bow, and bay, that will suit your needs. We make our products with high-quality and durable materials. Their Fibrex® frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4 glass assures you greater energy efficiency, as well. In addition, they come with superior warranties.

"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!"
