Emergency egress windows are required by law for all bedrooms in the United States. This is because these windows provide a means of escape in the event of a fire or other emergency situation. In addition, these windows can be used as an additional way to enter or exit a home when the main door is blocked or otherwise inaccessible due to flooding or other natural disasters. Emergency egress windows are a common safety feature in many buildings, but there’s a lot of misinformation out there about them. Some people think they’re only for emergencies, but that’s not the case – they can also be used to let in fresh air on hot days. Others think they have to break the window to escape in an emergency, but that’s not true either – the window can be opened from the inside without breaking it.
