For different types of Windows, it can be difficult to understand the context of all Windows. That’s where we come in! Have you heard the term “casement window” but aren’t sure what it actually looks like?
So what exactly is a casement window?
A casement window is any window connected to a window frame by one or more hinges. Specifically, Windows mounted on side frames (Windows hinged at the top are awning Windows, more on that later). Basically, they’re like doors, except instead of being opened with a knob, they’re opened with a crank.
Here are four things you probably didn’t know about casement windows:
1.They’re energy efficient
Casement Windows are actually our most energy-efficient and airy Windows. This is because casement Windows close tightly and are locked at multiple points to produce a weatherproof seal that minimizes air penetration.
2. Great for hard to reach areas.
Need to open a window in a cabinet, counter or other place that needs to be within reach? Casement Windows are designed for easy opening and cleaning.
3.Ideal for natural ventilation.
Casement Windows can be hinged at almost any Angle. This allows you to blow the breeze into your home for natural ventilation. Enjoy the spring breeze!
4. Provides excellent natural light.
Do you yearn for a picture window, but don’t want to lose it? Casement Windows provide plenty of sunlight, huge viewing Windows, but they’re open! It’s the best of both worlds!
