An awning window is a type of casement window that is cranked shut and locked with a firm thermal seal. As a result, it is much more energy-efficient than most other types of windows.
Where to Use Awning Windows
Upper Floors – Awning windows that are placed higher in a house will provide maximum ventilation and keep air flowing without letting the rain in.
Bathrooms – Ventilation in bathrooms is important in preventing steam damage.
Living Rooms – Awning windows in living rooms are the exception to the high placement rule. Placing awning windows below a fixed bay window gives a home a more modern look from the outside and makes it easier to keep windows open during a light rain.
Children’s Rooms – Placing these types of windows in your child’s room makes both entrance and exit difficult, providing security.
