How to Buy Jalousie Replacement Windows

Jalousie windows are also sometimes referred to as louvered windows, since they are made like shutters or louvers.

The individual glass panes are set in metal and can be opened or closed in unison. They are most often found in warmer climates, because jalousie windows do not seal well when closed. This lets in cold air and lets out warm air, which is not desired in colder climates. Nevertheless, in warmer climates jalousie windows are often used to allow ventilation and are installed in breezeways and on covered porches where there is no air conditioning or heating. Because jalousie windows do not seal well and allow for drafts, they are not as popular in our energy-conscious society as they once were and can be quite difficult to locate. In fact, you may find it easier to locate replacement parts rather than the entire window. However, if you are fond of this type of window, you can still find places where you can buy jalousie replacement windows.
