Awning windows are well suited for openings in which the width is greater than the height. Hinged at the top, awning windows open effortless outwards from the bottom with a crank and are easily secured with multi-latch locks on the sides.
Awning windows can be installed above, below or beside other types of windows or over entrance and patio doors. On their own, awning windows can be positioned higher on walls to provide great ventilation. Removable screens are affixed to the inside of the window making it easy for removal from inside the home. Awning windows are an excellent choice for kitchens and bathrooms.

You bet it does! When you buy windows, a significant portion of the possible energy savings comes from the glass. So when you are comparing quotes, make sure to compare the glass as well. Less expensive glass solutions will cost you more in energy costs in the long run and you'll probably run into other issues.
Below is a typical comparison of glass energy efficiencies. Want to know more about window energy efficiency? Check out our energy efficiency stories in our blog.
