During warm periods, opening your window is the easiest, cheapest and most effective way of cooling your room or building.
Opening windows on opposite sides of the building to allow natural breezes to pass through (cross ventilation) offers the most effective solution during these warmer periods.
Utilise natural light to reduce energy consumption and the warm rays of the sun can naturally heat your home during cold winter months.
Locks perform different actions;
Windows also offer a connection to the the outside world allowing you to see what is happening outside your home e.g what the weather is like or who has attended your home without having to answer the door.
Crucially however they also provide you with an emergency escape route should the unfortunate scenario occur whereby an emergency exit point is needed e.g of a should a house fire occur.
We are not being dramatic when we say that a fully functional window can save literally save your life!
