Casement windows are a popular choice in Canada due to their energy efficiency and easy maintenance. They are similar to awning windows as they open with a crank mechanism, but they are hinged on the side, like a door, instead of at the top. Unlike any other window, casement windows are equipped with a weather compression-fit on all four sides to ensures a tight seal, and therefore higher energy efficiency. In other words, if you want to save money on your electricity bills, a casement window is the right fit for you.
Casement Windows Advantages
Casement windows are perfect for rooms that require natural ventilation. They open outward and perfectly angled to ensure a direct breeze into the building. A mechanism called casement stay holds the window open for as long as you need, however, it is not recommended to keep those windows open in a windy weather, as the pressure may bend the hinges and cause malfunction. Here are some things to consider when buying casement windows:
- They are made from 100% lead-free uPVC which keeps their colour from fading and is resistant to all weather conditions.
- They are easy to operate due to a crank operating lever. Basically, no effort is needed to open or close the window.
- Casement windows have no bars or rails in the middle, offering you an unobstructed view of the outside world.
- They are available in a variety of colours and materials.
