Picture Windows versus Fixed Casement Windows

A picture window is a stationary window. That is, the window does not open. This allows for better energy performance. Picture windows are rectangular and placed so that the homeowners can enjoy a beautiful view, typically from their living room.

 

A picture window may stand alone or be flanked by other windows. The flanking windows may also be stationary as well, such as with a fixed casement window, but often are a standard casement window able to open and allow for ventilation when desired.

 

Although a fixed casement window is also stationary and tends to be energy-efficient, these windows are smaller. Also, the frame of a fixed casement window is typically wider and heavier than that of a picture window. And, picture windows or more commonly customized than fixed casement windows.

Picture Windows with Ventilation

We have picture windows in our homes to enjoy the beautiful views, hopefully of vistas like the Canadian Rockies. And, picture windows are great for letting light into your home. But, how do you get some ventilation when much of the wall is taken up by a picture window?

 

There are two options.

 

One is to simply flank the picture window with casement windows that you can crank open as desired.

The other option with a customized picture window installation is to have an air vent installed, typically just below the picture window. If you are not familiar with this idea, talk to us at RVW Ltd.
