The window replacement market is full of great options for you to choose from – from double hung to sliding windows – making it difficult to decide on the best one for your home. As of late, one of the top options that are emerging are casement windows. In today’s blog, the leading replacement windows expert, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, shares the benefits of installing casement windows.
Certain windows like double-hung windows are renowned for the ventilation they provide to your home. However, these windows only open halfway, while casement windows swing wide open to allow for superior ventilation. If you live in a cramped neighborhood with homes built next to each other, then casement windows are a great option since this allows you to enjoy maximum ventilation.
Your window replacement expert would tell you that casement windows bolster your home’s security, giving you peace of mind. The extra security comes from the hook-shaped locks that are installed on the frame which provides an extra layer of security. This acts as a deterrent against break-ins or forced entry. If you want to improve your home’s security, then you can’t go wrong with casement windows.
Offers Great Energy Efficiency
The same locking mechanism that adds security to your casement windows also helps increase its energy efficiency. This provides a tight seal that prevents rain, snow, and wind from entering your home’s interior. In turn, this makes your heating and cooling unit work more efficiently. This also gets rid of you worrying about drafts thanks to the strong seal.
