Sliding Window / July 19, 2018 / Olympia Doucet
Windows are a very important part of our kitchen. While remodeling a kitchen people plan more about other things like increasing the room or how to save some money on energy etc. but we forget how important it is to plan the windows in your kitchen. Actually windows are most important part of any room. They help in free flow of fresh air in and out of the room. But for kitchen it becomes vital as due to so many gases produced in kitchen we need proper flow of fresh air inside the kitchen room. The best are the sliding doors for kitchen. These are the best for many reasons especially in a house where there are kids.
The kitchen sliding windows are made of two sashes that can slide horizontally over each other. There is a track that allows the left and right movement of the windows. You can add more that two sashes to make your windows taller and wider. Since the track that is made for sliding of the sashes is little above the ground it doesnt allow the dust to settle on it. This way it becomes easier to maintain the windows and dust will never jam the working of the windows thus increasing its life.
You will have to gently raise the unit and slide the same in support brackets. Just mark a point where the unit hits the window. Now raise the window and attach the foam strip all along the line properly. If required just attach the extensions on the side wall by using the wood screws. If necessary attach the extensions on the side wall using wood screws. Perform application blocking. Perform application blocking up o the point where air conditioner comes in contact with window. This step will ensure proper sealing and would prevent any cold air from escaping.
