    "Transom are located over the top of a window or door’s transom - this is the beam that separates the top of the window or door from the rest of the wall. Transom windows allow light into a space during times of the day when the sun is higher in the sky. When there isn’t as much direct sunlight coming into your home, a transom window can offer a solid source of light after other windows stop being useful. The drawback with a transom window is hard to clean due to the location in the frame and no ventilation"

    "A transom is a horizontal part of the frame. It would separate two sashes, usually a top hung fan light from a lower sash or fixed pane. Basically you will only have a transom if you have two or more sashes or window panes vertically."
