Luckily we’re curating the month’s trends that we’ve noticed in Philadelphia just for you, every single month. This month’s trend? Our homeowners are replacing in order to increase airflow in their homes—and they’re using our casement windows to do it!
So why casement windows for airflow? What specifically makes homeowners want casement windows when they’re looking to increase the amount of air let into a room in their home? Well, it actually comes down to the very design of the window. While some might think a double-hung window might be better suited for airflow given the size of the opening, that’s actually not true. The design of a casement window opens outward and creates a large opening as well, but the real catch is that the window itself stretches out, causing the wind to be caught by the window and (thanks to physics) brought into your home.
The other beautiful thing about casement windows is that they give you more control of how much air you’d like to let in. You also have the opportunity to ‘catch’ air from different directions as well since you can adjust a casement to be as wide or as narrow as you’d like.
One area you do want to be careful with when replacing with casement windows is where your windows are in your home as this can affect air flow. The best way to be cautious and make sure you get windows in a spot that best fit your needs is to consult a seasoned professional who will be able to help you sort through the considerations as well as share the additional benefits of casement windows.
