Read on to learn about casement windows here.
How It Works
A casement window is hinged on either the right or left side, and is easily opened with a crank. The entire window opens outward to provide full ventilation. Simply adjust the opening as needed to catch the breeze and bring fresh air into your home. Renewal by Andersen casement windows also come with an easy-clean hinge, meaning the interior and exterior of the window can easily be cleaned from inside, saving you the trouble of having to drag out a bulky ladder.
Casement windows are usually taller than they are wide, and are the perfect complement to bay and bow windows, giving you a wonderful view while still allowing for ventilation. Low-profile hardware blends in with the frame, and mortise-and-tenon joints result in clean, attractive lines and strong corners. These features, along with the window’s low profile, result in a window style that can be easily incorporated into just about any home window design.
High Energy Efficiency
Aside from fixed picture windows, casement windows are the most energy-efficient operable window option available. The windows catch and lock at multiple points, creating an airtight seal as the sash presses snugly against the frame. The harder the wind blows, the tighter a casement window seals! This tight seal, along with the fact that it cannot be opened from the outside, makes a Renewal by Andersen casement window one of the most energy-efficient windows you can buy.
