Many people settle on a certain style of window for their home based on their personal preferences alone, with practicality coming a distant second in their list of priorities. If you have always dreamed of floor to ceiling patio doors opening onto a large garden, the security concerns that this type of window often pose may initially be of little interest. If you love the look of casement windows and are determined to have them fitted in your home, you may be similarly disinterested in any practical considerations arising from your choice. Fortunately, as far as this particular type of window is concerned, there are plenty of positive practical reasons to choose them so there is no need to make any compromises in order to satisfy your aesthetic preferences.
What many people do not realise when considering this type of window is that they not only look great, they are a very economical choice as well.
- Weatherproofing – Casement-style windows are second only to fixed glazing as far as weatherproofing is concerned. Given that most people do not want to fit windows that cannot be opened in their home, this makes casement units the best choice if you wish to keep hot air out in the summer and cold air out in the winter. The reason behind their superior performance in this respect, when compared to other glazing designs, is the fact that the window sash presses directly against the frame when the windows are closed, creating a seal that is airtight. This helps to reduce the amount of energy required to keep your home comfortably cool in hot weather and wonderfully warm when it is bitterly cold outside.
- Easy to Clean – Because they open from the side, casement windows are easier to clean than those that are hinged at the top or the bottom. If you like the idea of not having to pay a window cleaner to deal with second-floor glazing in your home, this design is the one for you. Even if you prefer to leave the work to somebody else, they will not be tempted to charge you a premium because of difficult to reach window panes in your home when you have casement units fitted.
- Improved Ventilation – The fact that these windows can be left wide open all day means that your home will benefit from extra ventilation in the summer months. Not having to run numerous fans around your home or, even worse, resort to using expensive air-conditioning units, is sure to save you money on your energy bills in the long run. As an added bonus, you can enjoy an unimpeded view at the same time as the extra fresh air, thanks to the wide opening angle of these windows.
