You’ll get a clear view of your front or back yard with fixed casement windows and superior airtightness and insulation. These types of windows are completely stationary and do not open at all. While this type of window does not provide ventilation, it is a superior window choice for the winter months to keep out the cold while maintaining an exterior view. With noise reduction or thermal efficiency options, you can select your optimal thickness for the insulation glass.
Fixed casement windows are excellent in terms of energy efficiency. They are top of the line and second only to fixed-pane windows for energy efficiency levels. These windows do not open, so if you have a room in your home where you would prefer ventilation, these may not be the best option. However, if you plan to keep your windows shut or have alternative window types in the room, fixed casement options provide a great view while ensuring that your heating and cooling expenses are minimal.
Fixed casement windows are incorporated into many bay and bow window designs. They are also excellent options for safety and security—both preventing theft and accidental falls if you have young children in the home.
There are many areas of your home where you can take advantage of fixed casement windows and the natural light they provide, such as near a stairway or in another room that doesn’t require ventilation.
