The Benefits of Residential Casement Windows

A casement window is typically attached to the frame by hinges on one side and comes with an easy-to-use hand crank.

Whether you want to replace the windows in your home or upgrade your company’s office, this style is an ideal choice to give the space a sleek, modern look. Here are a few benefits you can expect when you install casement windows in your home or business.

 

1. Plenty of airflow

A major perk of installing casement windows in your house or office space is that they allow great air circulation. Since the window is only attached to the frame on one side by hinges, the panel can be opened all the way. This increase in airflow improves indoor air quality and reduces humidity, which helps prevent the growth of mould and mildew.

 

2. Easy to use

Since casement windows open and close with a hand crank, they can be easily operated by anyone regardless of their height or mobility. There’s no need for reaching, pushing or pulling. Nice and easy does the trick.

 

3. Energy efficient

Installing casement windows in your home or business is a long-term investment. The airtight seal of this window style makes it one of the most energy efficient options available. You can also opt for panes glazed with a low-E coating to further increase efficiency. If your windows are energy efficient, you’ll save quite a bit of money by keeping your house or office warm in the winter and cool in the summer without the need to rely heavily on your heating and air conditioning systems.

 

4. Versatile design

Whether you’re looking to upgrade a new commercial space or an old residential dwelling, you can easily match your new casement windows to the building’s architectural style. This type of window comes in a wide range of designs, such as French and colonial grille, and can be made with a variety of materials including wood and vinyl.
