Why Double Hung and Casement Windows Are Ideal for Sunrooms

Aug 09, 2018

Sunrooms are a wonderful addition to any home, with a variety of functionalities – as a receiving room, entertainment den, home office or even as a terrarium. Given that windows are an integral part of a sunroom, it’s highly crucial that you choose the right type. There are two types of windows for sunrooms that homeowners can never go wrong with, namely:

Why Double Hung and Casement Windows Are Ideal for Sunrooms

Double Hung Windows

It seems picture windows should be the obvious choice for a space mainly used for soaking up the sun and taking in the scenery. However, double hung windows offer the dynamism that a stationary picture window simply lacks. Double hung windows can slide open vertically while staying within the frame, providing much-needed ventilation to the solarium. Cleaning double hung windows is also easier since the panes can be tilted inward or otherwise, eliminating the need to go outside to wipe down both sides of the glass.

Casement Windows

These types of windows might be smaller than bay and bow windows, but what they lack in size, they make up for in functionality. Since they operate via a crank mechanism, opening them won’t be a hassle as long as high-grade materials are used. Casement windows offer the perfect ratio of scenery-to-wall proportion, allowing just the right amount of sunlight into the room. There’s also less chance of break-ins, since casement windows do not leave the house as structurally vulnerable to intruders as other types of windows.

The Verdict

While the primary purpose of a sunroom is to let in plenty of light, there’s a risk of it turning into a sauna during hot weather if the wrong windows are installed. Even if all the panes are energy-efficient, larger types of windows stand a lesser chance against the sweltering heat due to their sheer size alone. Double hung windows and casement windows are the ideal windows for a sunroom because they do not compromise the view, the interior’s temperature, or the home’s security against intruders.

Whatever style you want, whether you’re considering casement or double hung windows, you should remember that they are best installed by professionals.
