How to Measure Your Windows for Window Warmers
Measuring the Width of Your Window

Measuring the Width of Your Window

To figure your Shade Width, measure your window(s) and casing
from outer edge to outer edge - this is your window width.
You then subtract 1 1/2" (3/4" on each side for the hinges that operate the wood clamps).
This is your final Shade Width.

                                                                                                                                               

 Measuring the Height of Your Window

NOTE: When figuring your Window Height
you have three options for measuring
depending on how you plan to mount your Window Warmer.

  • Option 1: Window Warmers usually are hung from a Velcro Strip attached
    to the top edge of the window casing.
  • Option 2: A variation on that is with a Mounting Board. The Mounting Board
    is a #2 1X Pine Board that is mounted on top of the window casing and the
    Window Warmer is then hung from the top edge of the Mounting Board.
    This allows the Window Warmer, when raised, to clear the window opening.
    This option should be used on doors, windows that swing inward,
    and whenever you wish to have more of the window exposed.
  • Option 3: Ornate Casings and other variations of trim may not allow the Window Warmer to be mounted on top. The Velcro is then attached to the face of the window casing.

The other variation with Height Measurement is whether or not you have a sill. Without a sill a bottom clamp is used to hold the Window Warmer tight to the trim. With a sill the Window Warmer rests directly on the sill. The weight of the aluminum bar sewn in the bottom of the Window Warmer holds it tight to the sill.
