What is a Picture/Fixed Window?
A picture window is a large, fixed window that does not open or close. It is designed to provide a clear view of the outdoors and is usually installed in a prominent location in a room, such as above a sofa or a bed. Picture windows are often used to bring natural light into a space and to create a connection with the outdoors. They are a popular choice for many homes because they are energy efficient and can add visual interest to a room.
What are the benefits of a Picture/Fixed Window?
There are several benefits to using picture windows:
Natural light: Picture windows allow a lot of natural light to enter a room, which can help create a bright and welcoming space.
Energy efficiency: Picture windows are energy efficient because they do not open or close, so there is no risk of drafts.
View: Picture windows provide a clear, unobstructed view of the outdoors, which can be especially enjoyable in a scenic location.
Decor: Picture windows can be used as a design element in a room, adding visual interest and character to the space.
Value: Picture windows can add value to a home by increasing the amount of natural light and improving the views.
Glass options for a picture/fixed window:
A double pane window is a type of window that is composed of two panes of glass separated by a space, or "air gap." The air gap between the panes of glass is sealed and can be filled with air or an inert gas, such as argon or krypton. Double pane windows are a popular choice for residential and commercial buildings because they provide several benefits over single pane windows.
A triple pane window is a type of window that is composed of three panes of glass separated by two spaces, or "air gaps." The air gaps between the panes of glass are sealed and can be filled with air or an inert gas, such as argon or krypton. Triple pane windows are a popular choice for residential and commercial buildings because they provide even better insulation and energy efficiency than double pane windows.
(low-e) glass is a type of window glass that has a thin, transparent coating applied to one or both sides of the glass. The coating is designed to reflect heat and reduce the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that passes through the glass.
Argon gas is used as a filling in energy efficient windows. It is an inert gas that is used to reduce heat transfer between the inside and outside of a building. Because argon is denser than air, it is able to reduce the amount of heat that is lost through a window by limiting the movement of air in the space between the window panes. This can help to keep a building warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which can save energy and reduce heating and cooling costs. In addition to its insulating properties, argon gas is also a poor conductor of electricity, so it can help to reduce the amount of electrical conductivity in a window.
