Finding the perfect window for a small space is challenging. Andersen Windows and Doors offer various window styles for every room in your home. 

While some manufacturers call them sliding windows, their other name is gliding windows. Many benefits come with choosing Andersen gliding windows and having Opal Enterprises install them. 

How Sliding Windows Work 

The windows glide horizontally, so you have full ventilation. They are space-saving and will glide onto one side. These windows will glide on a track in either the left or right direction. Some sashes overlap each other to facilitate the smooth opening. 

You can put these windows in small spaces without room to have an outward opening. They look exceptional in contemporary homes, but with the right customization options, you can find gliding doors that match any style.

Andersen Gliding Window Types

The 400 series of gliding windows has a fiberglass exterior with low maintenance. For the interior, you can get it in several colors, including white, dark bronze, or black. 

The 100 series is made with Fibrex and has a stationary sash with a second sash that opens. There is also a three-sash opinion, and it is available as a replacement insert window. Andersen also has the 200 series and E-series available. The 200 series is unique because it has a raised track system.

Are Sliding Windows Energy Efficient? 

Yes, gliding windows are energy efficient because they offer ventilation when they are open and refrain from allowing air in when closed. Gliding windows can help you improve indoor air quality through improved ventilation. They also help control noise. Energy efficiency means your heating and cooling costs are lower. 

The right windows will prevent heat from escaping or entering your home. Not only are you saving money, but you are also reducing your carbon footprint. Your level of energy efficiency will depend on the window feature you choose. 

Left Versus Right Venting 

Your gliding windows open left or right, and many Naperville homeowners wonder if there is a difference. When looking at your windows, which way do you want them to open: left or right? Left venting windows slide from right to left and vice versa for right windows.
