What are Hopper Windows?
Hopper windows have been around for a really long time, and are a popular choice for many homeowners looking for a smaller window that can provide good ventilation in humid areas of the home. What makes hopper windows unique is the way they open. It’s common for this type of window to have a crank-style operation. The hopper window is hinged at the top and opens inward from the bottom. Hopper windows have been a popular choice since the Victorian age, and homeowners still enjoy the functionality of this versatile window. Basements, bathrooms, and laundry rooms are just a few common rooms these windows are perfect for.
Hopper Window Benefits
- Hopper windows are perfect for tight spaces. Since hopper windows don’t need a lot of space to function and are relatively small, they are great for areas that don’t have a lot of space to work with. Small spaces like a half-bath, or gloomy areas that hold moisture, like a basement, will benefit greatly from having some natural light and increased ventilation from a hopper window.
- Hopper windows keep your home secure. Since hopper windows are small, they don’t provide an adequate point of entry for thieves looking to break into your home undetected.
- Hopper windows provide a tight seal. Unlike other window types, hopper windows press against the frame when they are closed. This creates an air-tight seal around your window eliminating drafts. You can boost the energy efficiency of your hopper window by choosing one built with energy savings in mind.
