What are the Benefits of Casement Windows for Your Home

Published , By Brian Olson

Casement windows are hinged on their side and open outwards to the left or right and allow for better ventilation from the entire window. They are often found above kitchen sinks, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be found throughout the entire home. Let’s go over the incredible advantages that the different types of casement windows can provide to your home.

Benefits Of Casement Windows

Why Choose Casement Windows?

  • Better Ventilation – When you open these types of windows, the entire pane of glass moves, offering excellent ventilation and providing tons of fresh air. This is often why casements are found in kitchens, but they could also be useful in other rooms that require ventilation, such as the bathroom.
  • Better Views – Either opened or closed, you will have an unobstructed view out of this window. Casement windows offer lots of natural light thanks to the fact that there is no window sash, so you can easily allow the sun into your home.
  • Increased Energy Efficiency – Because there are no sliding parts, there is very little air leakage with single-frame casement windows. This will mean better insulation in your home and a reduced energy bill, which can add up over time to quite a chunk of change.
  • Ease of Use – Being able to open the window with the turn of a handle makes casements much easier to use for those with mobility issues. This cranking motion is also easier to use in places behind counters or sinks that would require you to reach across to access the window.

If you would like to learn more about this style or find Pella casement windows in your area, then contact the window experts at Olson Windows.
