Casement Windows and Double-Hung Windows: Which Is Better?

Many people have been trying to determine which is the better of the two – casement window, or double-hung window? Find out what are their benefits and drawbacks so you can make that comparison.

There are numerous benefits of casement windows due to the design of the window. First of all, as it opens at its hinges, it can open widely and fully. This makes it possible to have a full view of the scene beyond the wall, so if you like some privacy yet enjoy being able to view the outside, casement windows make a great choice. Also, you can get more light into the house as well since there is no obstacle in the way when it is wide open. Apart from that, because the window opens wide, wind can easily flow into the house, making the area very well ventilated. Furthermore, the angle of the sash when opened is able to redirect wind to enter the house. Casement windows are also much more airtight than double-hung windows, so it helps to keep a room insulated.

When it comes to the drawbacks of casement windows, the common problems people face is the fact that the window sticks out, so if they are on the ground floor and there is a tight walkway there, it can be quite bothersome. Other than that, older versions are more difficult to clean the outside part of the window unlike newer ones that allows the glass to flip.

The benefits of casement windows are mostly the disadvantages of double-hung windows. Because double-hung windows cannot open up fully, only limited wind and light can enter the house. It is also not as airtight as casement windows, especially if it does not have the weather-stripping feature like in newer models. So when it comes to keeping the room insulated, it does a poor job at it. Hence, air conditioners and heaters would have to work extra to keep the room cool or warm.

On the other hand, there are a several benefits of double-hung windows too. For one, if the window is located on the ground floor facing a narrow walkway, the fact that it slides up and down instead of open outwards allows people to walk comfortably. Where style is concerned, it is also more versatile in appearance to adapt with most styles. They can also keep the room well-insulated, although not as well as casement windows.

So if considering between the two options, casement windows tend to be a better choice in conserving energy. However, do note that newer models of both windows provide better energy saving features.
