Given that the humble, worn out, wooden casement window is one of the biggest culprits for letting out heat and for letting in unwanted visitors; it’s understandable that anyone considering replacing them would have concerns about these failings. However, modern units deal with all the problems associated with older windows with ease, improving security, drastically reducing heat loss and at the same time adding value to your home.
These features all make the window fully secure and highly intruder resistant and give peace of mind to homeowners.
Casement Window Features
The double glazing, or even triple glazing, used in the windows incorporate heat insulating gasses between the panes to reduce heat loss. The thermal properties of the glass can even let heat in whilst preventing heat going out. This effect is sometimes described as “thermal gain”.
Reinforced frames and openers prevent warping, ensuring a continued tight fit seal when closed, keeping out draughts and saving you money on heating bills.

All new replacement windows should have a WER label (Window Energy Rating). The energy rating is very important because it will identify how well the windows keep in the heat & how well they keep out the cold. Bear in mind that the rating does not just apply to the glass parts, but takes the whole unit performance into consideration.
The labeling format comes from the BFRC (British Fenestration Ratings Council) and identifies the rating of the overall unit; the higher the rating, the more likely you are to save money on your home heating (or cooling) costs. “A” is the top level for efficiency rating, with G being the lowest. The WER label also shows the U values for the whole unit.
For simple guidance you could look for these values as the minimum to have:
- U value of 1.6 W/(m²K) or less for the window.
- Minimum window energy rating (WER) of ‘C’.
- sealed units with a ‘U’ value which is higher than1.2 W/(m²K)
- “Warm edge” spacer bars.
