Benefits of Casement Windows
There is a very good chance that when you picture a movie scene where an actor or actress throws open a window, you’re picturing casement windows. This is especially true if you’re picturing a slightly older movie, as casement windows used to be standard in most homes before sash windows became the norm. To give you a better idea, casement windows typically have hinges on either the right or left-hand side and swing open. They are incredibly versatile and besides being aesthetically pleasing and increasing the value of your home, there are have a number of advantages you can reap from replacing your current windows with impact windows, including:
- Multiple design features from which you can choose: whether you want a grille or no grille, a certain size, or even a specific material, you have all of those options and more with casement windows.
- Versatility: casement windows are great because they can either be installed as standalone windows, or as a part of a larger window installation, being paired with other windows such as bay, bow, or French windows.
- Energy efficiency: properly installed casement windows create an airtight seal when they are shut, thereby making them incredibly energy efficient, and in turn helping to reduce your energy costs month after month.
- Easy operation: casement windows are incredibly easy to open and shut. If you’re looking to replace a window above your kitchen sink, for example, where it is a little harder to reach in order to push a sash window up to open, then you should really consider casement windows.
- Excellent ventilation: when they’re open, casement windows provide better ventilation than almost any other window type.
- Enhanced security: Most casement windows open via a crank on the inside, making it virtually impossible for intruders to open from the outside.
