Casement windows offer so many benefits in addition to capturing beautiful views and improving your home’s curb appeal. In today’s blog, we list the features and benefits that make casement windows a great choice for your next replacement window installation project.
1. Excellent Energy Efficiency
Energy-efficient windows prevent heat loss by minimizing conduction through glass and by preventing leaks between the sash and the frame. Unlike other operable window styles, casement windows have hinged sashes that press against the frame when closed, forming a tight seal. This makes casement windows the most energy-efficient operable window style. Thanks to our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass and Fibrex® material frames, Renewal by Andersen® casement windows help reduce your indoor heating and cooling requirements, which in turn leads to less energy consumption and significant energy savings.
2. Effective Ventilation
Another unique benefit of casement windows is that 100% of the window area is utilized when opened, which makes it perfect for allowing fresh air into large rooms, as well as rooms that need to be aired out quickly, like kitchens or laundry areas. The opened sashes are also effective as breeze catchers with the right wind direction. Our casement windows feature high-quality hardware that can withstand daily operation, so you can ventilate your room daily without hassle.
3. Easy and Safe Operation
One of the problems with traditional casement windows is that when you open them all the way, they are difficult to close without leaning out of the window opening to grab the sash. Doing this on a second-story window is dangerous. Fortunately, modern casement windows have crank handles that allow easy, one-handed operation. This design makes casement windows safer to operate, and it also makes it easier for people who have limited accessibility.
4. Strong Security
Renewal by Andersen casement windows feature a lever that locks the window sash at multiple points. In addition to helping make the window more watertight, it also makes the window extremely difficult to pry open. Additionally, we have a wide selection of window security options for bolstering your home security.
