In the previous post, we compared casement windows with other popular window types. However, for you to be fully convinced to get them for your home, you need to learn more about their known benefits and advantages. To help you make a better decision on whether or not casement windows would be best for your home, check out these reasons.
Casement windows can be opened all the way, which means that air can flow freely though the windows. This type of window is best in environments with excellent air quality. Additionally, they let in adequate natural lighting.
Casement windows are opened and closed using a near-fool proof mechanical system. Because of this, the window can be shut tight during rough weather conditions. Furthermore, because they are airtight, they prevent heat from escaping through the window during cold winter months or when you need your home to be warm. To cut it short, they provide some degree of energy efficiency, which can help curb utility bills in and add value to your home.
The mechanical nature of casement windows makes them more secure than other types or styles. In other types of windows, once you defeat the locking mechanism, the window can be opened easily. Aside from the locking mechanism or handles, the operators (the cranks or levers) also add ample security and protection.
Ease of Maintenance
Casement window maintenance does not require much. All you need to do is wipe it clean of dust and debris regularly. Even cleaning the exterior portion of the window is a breeze because you simply need to open one side fully for you to have access to the other side. But you do need to ensure that the mechanisms are well oiled and lubricated so that the window functions properly at all times.
