Here's another thought: if you are remodeling your kitchen, don't dismiss the idea of a casement window over a sink or cabinets, where opening and closing traditional sash windows can be a real chore. Casements, with their crank handle, are just easier to open. It's Easy Being Green: These windows are weather tight, and that's great news for today's energy-conscious homeowner. When you close a casement window, it pulls snug against your home. And because they're solid pieces of Low-E glass outfitted with argon, they are incredibly energy-efficient. Once you have replacement casement windows installed, just sit back and watch your energy savings add up.
They are harder to break into. If you are thinking security for your home, then you probably should be thinking casement windows. This is because they have locks that are hook shaped and the hooks are usually embedded within the window frame thereby leaving them untouchable. This is especially the case when comparing with double hung windows which offer easy access because a slim bar can be slipped under the sash and opened by lifting the lock screws out of the frame. Casement windows discourage unauthorized entries because they are a little tedious to open.
