What is a casement window? Casement, or awning, windows are the true work horses of replacement windows. Of all operating window styles, casement windows combine outstanding natural lighting and the highest energy efficiency rating. Homeowners often prefer casement windows in kitchens, bathrooms, and family rooms, where higher ventilation is desired.
In the Pittsburgh area during the cold winter months, homeowners with casement windows can enjoy the outside view without having to worry about high energy costs. Not only are awning windows highly energy efficient, they are also designed and fabricated elegantly to allow more light to enter a room than other window styles.
In lieu of traditional, double hung windows, homeowners opt for casement windows when in need of a window in a difficult location. Some of these areas include over a kitchen sink or in a child’s room. The ease of which awning windows open make them an ideal choice in these situations.
A popular choice for a game room or basement window is an awning window, very similar to a casement window. Awning windows are hinged along the top of the window frame. This makes them easy to swing open, provide air circulation, and allow light into the room, even when it’s raining outside.
