Benefits of Casement Windows for Tampa Homes
While there are numerous benefits to new replacement casement windows in Tampa, there are four main benefits that people often cite: superior ventilation, improved energy efficiency, virtually unlimited design options and variations, and exceptional security.
When it comes to ventilation, no other replacement window type allows for as much ventilation as casement windows do. This is because casement windows are hinged on the side, like a door. Whereas other window types only allow for a portion of the window to open at a time, casement windows can be fully opened, thereby creating the largest possible aperture within a window frame for air to flow through. But that’s not the only reason why casement windows offer superior ventilation – although that is the biggest reason. Because casement windows open outwards, the sash can catch side breezes and redirect them into your house.
This superior ventilation can also help improve the energy efficiency of your home during certain seasons. However, casement windows in Tampa are one of the most energy-efficient window designs on the market, so you will see improved energy efficiencies year-round, regardless of the ventilation. This is due to the fact that casement windows have a superior seal between the sash and the frame. When the window is fully closed, drafts are completely eliminated. This means your precious air-conditioned air isn’t leaking out of your home in the summer, and your air conditioner does not need to use as much energy to regulate the temperature inside your home. The result is lower energy bills every month.
In terms of security, casement windows are one of the most difficult window types to break in to. With other window types, intruders can typically break the glass, reach in, and lift the sash to gain entry into your home. Casement windows, on the other hand, can only be opened via a hand crank. While the intruder may be able to break the glass and reach the hand crank, the more they try to crank the window open, the more the window will be pushing back against them to try to open and the harder it will become to keep cranking the window open. Not to mention how much harder it is to crank a window open through broken glass. And if you were to go with our hurricane impact window glass for your casement windows, there will not be an intruder in the world that will be capable of breaking your window open.
So you have superior ventilation, improved energy efficiency, and exceptional security, and at ARMORVUE Window & Door, you also have virtually unlimited design options and variations. Casement windows in general already come in a wide variety of designs, and you can further increase your options by coupling casement windows with other window types.
