The Energy Efficiency of Casement Windows

Casement windows are one of the most well-known and most bought windows on the market. They’re easy to spot: a framed see-through glass with a hinge on its side. Consumers love them for their simplicity. However, how do they fare when it comes to energy efficiency? Here are the different types that you can buy:

The Energy Efficiency of Casement Windows

Single Frame

The single frame is a standard type of window. It is characterized by its basic and simple style, comprised only of a single frame. The “lights” or the panels of glass separated by wooden strip can be found within this frame, and it opens either inwardly or outwardly depending on how the window is mounted.

Single-frame casement windows are known for their durability due to the connection of their frame at the sides with the hinges. When it comes to energy efficiency, they also offers superior ventilation as they can be opened widely either inwardly or outwardly. Lastly, windows installation is quite easy on the pocket as compared to other casement windows.

Double

Double casement windows, or French casement windows, are two windows that are hinged on both sides. They swing out and meet at the center when closed. They operate like French doors, giving these windows an elegant touch to the room.

As compared to single casement windows, installing double casement windows is more expensive. The upside is that they are low maintenance. When it comes to energy-efficient windows, they provide a full opening that will allow more light into the home. It’s even large enough to serve as an emergency exit. Lastly, they’re great for houses situated in scenic locales as they offer an unrestricted view when opened fully.

Unlike the first two types mentioned, push-out casement windows feature a handle rather than a crank. This promotes an easier way to open a window as the handle can move swiftly between the turn, tilt and lock position. Other than that, security is also one of their main features as they have a multi-point locking system.

For their energy efficiency, push-out casement windows can tilt to make way for ventilation and can be opened entirely for full air circulation. They can also be opened inwardly for a smooth cleaning process from the interior and can last long in a weather that is wet and windy.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
