GETTING TO KNOW CASEMENT WINDOWS – PART 2: CASEMENT WINDOWS AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Getting a good window replacement is no longer just about what looks better in your home or which one provides the best view. Today, one of the things that separate average windows from the excellent ones is energy efficiency. There are different ways by which a window can contribute to improving your home’s energy efficiency and this is how a casement window does it.

Cooling Down

One of the main functions of a casement window is to provide ventilation, which it does better than other window types. Having a quick way to air out your home not only makes it faster to cool down during a hot summer day, but also makes it easier for your air conditioning unit to regulate indoor temperatures once the window is closed.

Warming Up

Just as your air conditioning unit uses power to cool down your how, your heater also uses up a lot of energy trying to keep you warm during the colder seasons. However, cold air coming from outside can disrupt heating inside the home, pushing your heating system to work doubly hard to keep you warm. Energy-efficient casement windows take care of this problem by keeping indoor heat in, allowing temperature inside your home to stabilize.

Natural Lighting

Daylighting refers to the use of natural light to illuminate. With a large glass area, a casement window supports daylighting efforts by letting in a lot of natural light. This lets you reduce your dependence on artificial lighting as you can harness natural light during the day. It might not seem like much but a few hours of not turning on the lights in your home everyday will add up, the results of which you’ll see on your energy bill down the line.

Energy Efficiency vs Energy Conservation

Energy efficiency and energy conservation are commonly used interchangeably but they are not the same thing. To put it simply, energy efficiency refers to wiser use of energy while energy conservation pertains to using less energy. However, energy efficiency can lead to energy conservation and vice versa.

The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
