Casement Windows: What to Know Before Purchasing Them

Casement windows are one of the most popular replacement windows in the market. After all, they’re cost-effective compared to other window styles and their also very energy-efficient, allowing you to save a significant amount on your monthly bills. However, these aren’t the only things you need to know about them. 

In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento reveals everything you should know about casement windows before you purchase them, beginning with:

They Offer Better Ventilation

If you’re concerned about your home’s ventilation or just generally want to promote better air-flow, then casement windows are the right choice for you. This is due to their open sash, which acts as the windows’ flap to funnel side breezes into your home, especially if you are boxed in by your neighbors. Keep in mind that this may also work against you, however, as casement sashes tend to block breezes that come from the opposite direction instead of sending them into your home.

They Improve Security

According to home remodeling experts, casement windows can also help you increase the security of your home. Casement windows can be relatively difficult to break in to compared to windows like double-hungs. This is because these window styles use cranks instead of latches and they can be difficult to operate through broken glass. In fact, as a precaution, you can even remove the crank and keep it nearby but out of reach to prevent potential intruders from even attempting to open your window.

They Can Be Fully Opened

Compared to other window styles, casement windows are one of the few that you can fully open, making them one of the best window styles if you want to enjoy the cool breeze of the outdoors from the comfort of your home.
