Fixed Casement Windows are a great solution for spaces that have good ventilation but need to be well lit. With their three-part sectioning, Fixed Casement windows are ideal for letting in enough light while making insulation a priority.
In Climate Zone 3 locations like Edmonton, windows are the first line measure for energy-efficient housing. Intentionally non-opening windows like Fixed Casement windows are ideal, as they are designed to let in as much light as possible while keeping much-needed heat in.
A fixed casement window can offer several benefits to your home. One main benefit is, of course, the added light that these windows provide. Given that they are often slightly larger in size, and are commonly placed in rows, this means that they can allow a large quantity of light into the room which can brighten up space significantly.
This is particularly valuable in larger areas of the house, as these windows will be able to bring in plenty of natural light during the day, eliminating the need to keep the lights on which can ultimately save you money in the long run.
In addition, casement windows offer a clear and unobstructed view of the outdoors for you and your family to enjoy.
However, while having a nice view of the outside world while indoors is a nice feature to have, this can also come with a decreased amount of privacy because this, in turn, means that people can also see inside your home which is certainly something to consider.
Moreover, because these windows cannot be opened, this makes for a more difficult time cleaning due to the fact you would have to venture outside to clean the other portion of the window. Further, these windows as a result of their fixed nature may not be the best prime for spaces in need of extra ventilation.
Overall, it is advisable to consider buying a new casement window if you have a reasonably large space with adequate ventilation that is in need of some more natural lighting and a better view of the outdoors.

Our double-paned windows with clear glass provide optimum noise protection compared to single pane glass. In terms of temperature resistance, it promotes the easy flow of hot and cold air from both inside and outside.
Low emissivity glass, or Low-E glass, is a strategic choice for lowering your home energy costs all-year-round. In winter, Low-E glass cuts down on heat loss by reducing radiant heat transfer and reflecting interior heat back into your room, where it needs to be. It also efficiently dispenses the sun’s rays—allowing more of them to enter the home as usable solar energy. This provides extra warmth while minimizing reliance on heating, which can account for up to 60% of a home’s energy costs.
In summer the same principle applies but the effect is reversed. Low-E glass windows help reduce the flow of hot air into the cool interior. This specially formulated coating also reduces the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, which are a leading cause of premature fading and degradation of fabrics and carpeting.
Triple-pane glass windows are the most energy-efficient models on the market. With the extra pane of glass, they moderate temperatures inside for optimal comfort in every season—during winter, cold air remains outside and warm air inside, while in summer the results are reversed.
Special coatings are often applied to the glass to eliminate solar heat gain and boost its energy efficiency. The extra pane of glass truly provides a new level of insulation, airflow and energy efficiency.Request a Quote
