Hopper Windows - Bottoms Up!
A hopper window is a popular choice for basements because of its ventilation properties and easy to reach locks. These windows open from the bottom of the frame and inwards, making them very easy to open and a great way to get added ventilation into your room. Hopper windows also come equipped with screens which can help you keep out insects and other creatures. With all of these great features, there are a number of other locations suitable for a hopper window, and not just the basement.
A hopper window is a natural fit over an entry door. Because the windows swing up, they allow ventilation into the home without letting in any of the elements. In many municipalities, there are building codes for fresh air intake and hopper windows are a great way to meet such requirements. In addition to this, these windows can be ordered with stained glass for the designer in you.
We have actually installed hopper windows above bedroom doors to help circulate warm and cool air throughout the home. This can be a great option for ventilation all the while allowing the bedroom its privacy. This same application works great for laundry rooms too, allowing light and ventilation.
If you have a bathroom with no fan, a hopper window is a great option for ventilation, privacy, and even security. If your bathroom has two walls that face the outside, using two hopper windows will provide the room with a natural cross ventilation system.
