It’s nice to be able to open most of the windows in your home. But there’s a good chance that you have at least a few windows in your house that they don’t ever open up. It might be because they’re located too high up on a wall to get to them. Or it might be because they’re in a place where it wouldn’t be safe to leave them open. But whatever the case, you should consider putting fixed replacement windows in Tacoma, WA in their place the next time you have new windows installed. Fixed windows are windows that cannot be opened or closed once they’re in place. Find out about some of the biggest benefits of these windows below.
They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes.
One of the first things you’re going to discover when you start shopping around for fixed Tacoma, WA windows is that they come in almost any shape and size you want. From round fixed windows to circle top fixed windows to octagon fixed windows, you’ll find a variety of shapes and sizes. This will help you to make a strong statement with any fixed windows that you install in your home.
They automatically make your home more energy efficient.
Most replacement windows will help you improve your home’s energy efficiency when you install them. But they won’t all make your home as energy efficient as fixed windows will. Since fixed windows don’t open at all, they provide the most insulation of all windows. You won’t have to worry about air leaking in or out of fixed windows at all as long as they’re installed properly.
They improve your home’s safety and security.
Anytime you leave a window in your home open, there is at least a little bit of risk that comes with doing it. Someone inside of your home could accidentally fall out of an open window if they’re not careful. At the same time, someone from outside of your home could break into an open window if you forget to close it when you go to bed at night or leave your house for the day. You won’t have to deal with any of this risk when you have a fixed window that remains closed at all times.
They often cost less than regular windows.
Because fixed windows don’t open and close, they don’t have any moving parts inside them. This makes them less expensive to install compared to regular windows. It also makes them less expensive to maintain and repair over time. You won’t have to spend much money at all to fix fixed windows over the years thanks to the way in which they’re constructed.
