In 2017, the United States reached a milestone. Although there wasn’t a great deal of fanfare and media attention at the time, our nation reached a remarkable benchmark on the quest to a higher level of environmental stewardship and energy conservation. The achievement? Close to 60% of US homes were furnished with insulated windows as single-pane versions were removed and replacement windows installed or new construction followed stricter energy efficiency regulations. The Renewal by Andersen of Long Island replacement window team is proud to have been part of this shift toward better sustainability practices, and we continue to help our friends and neighbors update their homes, condos, office buildings and other structures with modern energy efficient windows every day.
If you’ve been thinking about upgrading an older home, here are a few reasons we think casement replacement windows deserve your consideration.
There’s no question that any modern, double-pane window will outperform an aging single-pane home. But, casement windows offer some reaally unique advantages.
For example, you get superior protection against inclement weather. Casement replacement windows have the highest energy efficiency ratings of any operable window in our portfolio. And, with a single, easy-grasp level, people can open this style with little effort and engage the multi-point locking system just as easily. This has to be the best style for blocking air and moisture while being easy to operate for everyone, including those of us with limited mobility.
Another key design benefit is the inert insulating gas between the glass that allows homeowners to maximize heat gain during the winter months, and shield against heat transfer during the hotter, summer months, depending on which glass solution you choose when custom designing your new windows.
And, cleaning is a breeze — literally. You can install oversized windows and still enjoy cranking them out fully to reach both interior and exterior surfaces from the comfort of your home – even if the size means you have to use a squeegee to reach the furthest corners.
So, when you decide to install high-performance casement replacement windows you get:
What’s not to love about this replacement window style?
This style is compatible with most of the other window styles.

You’ll find casement windows installed in every room, high on the wall in basements, centered on the wall in bedrooms and family rooms and over cabinets and shelves in kitchens and baths.
