Benefits of placing your window closer to the inside of your home.  

  •  Improves the windows performance by allowing the interior air currents to circulate past the entire glass surface, helping to keep it warm, dry and moisture free.
  •  Enjoy a clear view year round as the warmer inside window surface keeps frost and moisture from forming on your glass and your window frame
  •  By recessing the windows from the outside your windows will be proctected from cold wind chills, keeping your home warmer and more comfortable, much like stepping into doorway on a cold winter day to escape the wind.
  •  Allows you to sit close to your windows without feeling coolness from the window.
  • By keeping the glass warm with warm air flowing past your glass, the special Low E coating on the glass work better to reflect the warmth back into your home, decreasing the ability for the heat in your home to be lost through the glass.
  • The warmer glass surface will allow you to keep your homes relative humidity within Health Canada, and The Mayo Clinics recommendation of 30-50% and still enjoy clear glass on the coldest of days.  It also keeps condensation under control when lots of cooking is taking place while you entertain family and friends.
