Windows are not merely a source of natural light and ventilation, they are also a critical component of your home’s energy efficiency and overall aesthetic. Since windows are such a big decision, it’s wise to learn about what makes one window a better option than another, and Andersen 400 Series Casement Window are a phenomenal option.

Casement Windows vs. Double or Single-Hung Windows

Energy-efficient casement windows, such as the Andersen 400 Series Casement Windows, offer a ton of benefits over double- or single-hung windows:

  • Casement windows can open fully, unlike double- or single-hung windows, which only allow half of the window space to open. This can create more airflow into your home, which is perfect for warm summer days.
  • Casement windows have better energy efficiency since their unique design creates a tighter seal when wind blows against them. This helps to keep your home better insulated so you can save on energy bills. 
  • Casement windows are also typically easier to clean and maintain than double- and single-hung windows since they can open fully.

These factors, ventilation, energy efficiency, and maintenance, are important to consider to ensure your home is as comfortable and maintenance-free as possible.

Exploring Key Features of Andersen 400 Series Casement Windows

Energy-Saving Glass
