With so many options to choose from, finding the right window style to complement your home can be understandably confusing. After all, how do you know which window best meets your needs? Fortunately, in keeping with our ongoing effort to provide the best service possible to our valued customers, Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA is here to share more information about the high-quality windows we install. In this blog, we’ll focus on casement windows.
How They Work
Casement windows are hinged, either on the left or right side, and can be easily opened with a simple crank. These windows are an excellent choice if you want plenty of ventilation because the entire window swings open outward and can be adjusted to catch a fresh breeze and achieve optimal airflow.
Renewal by Andersen® casement windows are also easy to clean, thanks in part to the easy-clean hinge that allows ready access to both the inside and outside of the window from your home’s interior. This feature makes window cleaning much more convenient as well as safer, since you won’t have to climb a rickety ladder to take care of exterior surfaces.
When it comes to design, casement windows are generally taller than they are wide. This makes them the perfect complement to elegant bay and bow windows, as they contribute to the expansive view while also providing ventilation. Casement windows have mortise-and-tenon joints that form strong corners and feature clean, crisp lines. In addition, the low-profile hardware blends unobtrusively into the frame, resulting in an attractive window that can be incorporated into practically any home.
Exceptional Energy Efficiency
Only fixed picture windows are more energy-efficient than casement windows, which are your best bet for energy savings when it comes to operable windows. That’s because the windows catch and lock at multiple points, creating an airtight seal where the sash presses tightly into the frame. The more the wind blows, the tighter the window seals, making casement windows an excellent option for areas that are very cold or very windy. In addition, casement windows can’t be opened from the outside, which increases the safety and security of your home.
