Casement or Double-Hung – Which One to Choose

August 25, 2017

When you need to replace or fit new windows, you will notice that there are a number of varieties from which to choose. Apart from colors and glass options, there is also a wonderful selection of styles, including double-hung and casement windows. Both of which offer some great benefits and it can be tough to choose!

Double-hung windows are an excellent option when you need a window that offers a variety of ventilation options. Both of the windows in the frame are fully functional which means that you have complete control over how much air filters in and out your home. The tilt feature not only makes for optimal airflow, but it also makes these windows extremely easy to clean. Imagine installing a window on an upper level of your home. Cleaning that window would often require window cleaning supplies with extensions to reach all the way to the top of the window. However, the tilt feature means that every inch of the window – both inside and out – can be effectively cleaned from inside your home! While there are a number of working parts in this particular type of window, they also offer excellent insulation when shut. Of course, it is recommended that homeowners opt for professional window installation in order to ensure that their window is properly fitted and to reduce any chance of air or water infiltration.

If you are concerned about obstructing the view of your yard or other surroundings, then you might prefer a larger, single window such as a casement window. Casement windows have been a top choice for many home and business owners for many years. These windows offer benefits including natural lighting, ventilation, and the overall improvement of the appearance of your property. This window opens to a 90-degree angle which means that it can effectively be cleaned from inside. Unlike double-hung windows, casement windows do not offer as much flexibility when it comes to limiting ventilation. They are great for rooms that regularly need to be completely ventilated like kitchens, bathrooms, and other communal areas. This kind of ventilation comes in particularly handy during the colder months. Instead of airing a room out for a long period of time, these windows will let that clean air in and get rid of stale air in a matter of minutes! What does this mean for you? Well, while the air in the room might be cooler, the shorter ventilation time means that the walls and other parts of your home will not have the chance to cool down. This means that the air in the room will warm back up quicker than if the entire house was cold.
