What are Casement Windows and Why You Should Consider Them From Trusted Saskatoon Window and Door Professionals at Wiebe Windows

Owner, Bradley Wiebe has been installing windows and doors in Saskatoon and area for over 10 years. They only install Canadian manufactured windows and doors. These products are built for the Saskatchewan climate. Brad takes pride in ensuring that his client’s windows and doors are installed correctly and that quality products are being used. Here is their latest Saskatoon windows and door tip. When considering different window options for energy efficiency in Saskatchewan, casement windows are a good choice. Wiebe Windows & More are Trusted Saskatoon Windows & Door Experts!

Why casement windows are worth considering 


Casement windows are a type of window that opens outward on hinges, similar to a door. They are hinged on one side and typically operated by a crank or lever mechanism, allowing them to swing open and close easily. Here are some key features and benefits of casement windows:

1. Energy Efficiency: Casement windows offer excellent energy efficiency. When closed, they create a tight seal against the window frame, minimizing air leakage and reducing drafts. The sash of a casement window presses against the frame, providing a superior seal compared to other window types. This helps in preventing heat loss during cold winters and heat gain during hot summers.

2. Ventilation: Casement windows are known for their excellent ventilation capabilities. When fully opened, they allow maximum airflow into the room since the entire window opening is unobstructed. The outward opening design catches the breeze and directs it into the room, providing effective natural ventilation. This is particularly beneficial in areas with limited cross-ventilation or for rooms that require increased airflow.

3. Easy Operation and Cleaning: Casement windows are easy to operate with the use of a crank or lever mechanism. They open and close smoothly, making them suitable for hard-to-reach places or for individuals with mobility challenges. Additionally, the outward-opening design makes it easier to clean.

5. Versatility: Casement windows can be installed individually or combined in groups to create custom window configurations. They are the option to meet egress code for bedrooms and can be combined with a fixed section of windows to allow more light into your room.

6. Security: Casement windows offer good security features. The hook-shaped locks embedded in the window frame provide a high level of resistance against forced entry when the window is closed and locked. Additionally, the hinges are typically installed on the interior side of the window, making it difficult for intruders to tamper with the hardware from the outside.

Overall, casement windows are a popular choice for homeowners seeking energy efficiency, ventilation, unobstructed views, and ease of operation. However, it's essential to ensure proper installation and regular maintenance to maintain their performance and longevity. Consulting with Wiebe window professionals can help you determine if casement windows are the right choice for your specific needs and home requirements.

Popular Choices of Energy-Efficient Windows From Trusted Saskatoon Window and Door Professionals at Wiebe Windows

Owner, Bradley Wiebe has been installing windows and doors in Saskatoon and area for over 10 years. They only install Canadian manufactured windows and doors. These products are built for the Saskatchewan climate. Brad takes pride in ensuring that his client’s windows and doors are installed correctly and that quality products are being used. Here is their latest Saskatoon windows and door tip. When considering different window options for energy efficiency in Saskatchewan, here are some popular choices to consider. Wiebe Windows & More are Trusted Saskatoon Windows & Door Experts!

Popular Choices of Energy-Efficient Windows

When considering different window options for energy efficiency in Saskatchewan, here are some popular choices to consider:

1. Dual-pane Windows: Dual-pane windows consist of two layers of glass with an insulating space between them. This space is typically filled with air or inert gas like argon, which helps reduce heat transfer. Dual-pane windows are a more cost effective option for energy efficiency and can provide significant insulation benefits compared to single-pane windows but are still not the best option for our cold winters.

2. Triple-pane Windows: Triple-pane windows offer even better insulation than double-pane windows. They have three layers of glass with two insulating spaces between them, filled with gas. The additional pane and insulating layers enhance the window's thermal performance, reducing heat loss or gain. Triple-pane windows are especially beneficial in extremely cold climates like Saskatchewan.

3. Low-E Coatings: Low-emissivity (low-E) coatings are thin, transparent layers applied to window glass to minimize the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that can pass through. These coatings help regulate heat transfer, reflecting heat back into the room during winter and blocking it during summer. Low-E coatings can be used in combination with dual-pane or triple-pane windows to enhance their energy efficiency.

4. Gas Fills: Inert gas like argon are sometimes used to fill the spaces between the glass panes in energy-efficient windows. This gas has higher insulating properties than air, reducing heat conduction and improving energy efficiency. Gas-filled windows are particularly effective in climates with extreme temperatures.

5. Window Frames: While the glass itself plays a significant role in energy efficiency, the window frames also impact insulation. Older wood and aluminum windows are not as energy efficient as the new vinyl or metal clad windows.

6. Window Orientation: Consider the orientation of your windows in relation to the sun's path. South-facing windows receive the most direct sunlight, so having windows with low solar heat gain coefficients (SHGC) can help reduce heat gain during hot summers. North-facing windows are generally less affected by direct sunlight and can prioritize insulation to minimize heat loss.

When selecting windows, look for the ENERGY STAR® label, which signifies that the windows meet specific energy efficiency guidelines. Consulting with window professionals or contractors can also provide valuable insights into the best window options for your specific needs and budget.

Wiebe Window & More Explain the need for Energy-efficient windows in Saskatchewan

Owner, Bradley Wiebe has been installing windows and doors in Saskatoon and area for over 10 years. They only install Canadian manufactured windows and doors. These products are built for the Saskatchewan climate. Brad takes pride in ensuring that his client’s windows and doors are installed correctly and that quality products are being used. In their latest Saskatoon windows and door tip they discuss why energy-efficient windows are important in Saskatchewan. Wiebe Windows & More are Trusted Saskatoon Windows & Door Experts!

Energy-Efficient Windows are Essential in Saskatchewan

They save energy and reduce utility costs. Saskatchewan experiences long, cold winters and hot summers, making proper insulation and energy efficiency crucial for maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures and minimizing heating and cooling expenses. 

Here are some reasons why energy-efficient windows are a must in Saskatchewan:

1. Improved Insulation: Energy-efficient windows are designed with advanced insulation features such as low-e coatings, triple panes, and argon gas between the panes. These features help reduce heat transfer through the windows, keeping warm air inside during winters and preventing heat gain during summers.

2. Reduced Heating and Cooling Costs: By minimizing heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer, energy-efficient windows help reduce the reliance on heating and cooling systems. As a result, you can save on your energy bills by lowering the energy consumption required to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.

3. Enhanced Comfort: Energy-efficient windows create a more comfortable indoor environment by reducing drafts, cold spots, and heat transfer. They help maintain consistent temperatures throughout your home, allowing you to enjoy a cozy living space during harsh winter conditions.

4. Condensation Control: Energy-efficient windows are designed to minimize condensation build-up on the interior surface of the glass. By reducing the temperature difference between the inside and outside of the window, these windows help control condensation, which can lead to mold growth and damage if left unchecked.

5. Environmental Benefits: Energy-efficient windows not only benefit homeowners but also contribute to a greener environment. By reducing energy consumption, they help lower greenhouse gas emissions associated with power generation, thus mitigating climate change.

When choosing energy-efficient windows in Saskatchewan, look for the ENERGY STAR® certification, which ensures the windows meet or exceed strict energy performance standards. It's also advisable to consider factors like the window's U-factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), air leakage ratings, and proper installation to maximize energy savings.

Investing in energy-efficient windows is a wise choice for homeowners in Saskatchewan, as they offer long-term energy savings, improved comfort, and a positive environmental impact.

Double Vs Triple-Pane Windows From Trusted Saskatoon Window and Door Experts at 101 Doors and Windows

The dedicated team at 101 Doors and Windows believes that knowledge and experience matter. They have many years of experience in the Saskatchewan construction industry and they choose to specialize in windows and doors. They are a hands-on company that works directly with clients and manufacturers to ensure a great experience, as such they offer fast, friendly, and knowledgeable service. 101 Doors and Windows are Trusted Saskatoon Door & Window Experts!

In their latest Trusted Saskatoon window and door tip, they share the difference between double and triple-pane windows. 


Double-pane windows and triple-pane windows refer to the number of glass layers (panes) that make up the window. Here are some key differences between double-pane and triple-pane windows:

1. Insulation and Energy Efficiency:

   - Double-Pane Windows: Double-pane windows consist of two glass panes separated by a spacer. The space between the panes is typically filled with air or an insulating gas like argon. Double-pane windows provide a reasonable level of insulation and energy efficiency, reducing heat transfer and improving indoor comfort compared to single-pane windows.

   - Triple-Pane Windows: Triple-pane windows, as the name suggests, consist of three glass panes with two insulating spaces. The extra glass layer and air spaces provide enhanced insulation and energy efficiency. Triple-pane windows offer superior thermal performance, reducing heat loss, outside noise, and condensation compared to double-pane windows.

2. Sound Insulation:

   - Double-Pane Windows: Double-pane windows provide some level of sound insulation compared to single-pane windows due to the additional layer of glass and the insulating airspace. They can help reduce outside noise but may not be as effective as triple-pane windows.

   - Triple-Pane Windows: Triple-pane windows offer improved sound insulation properties compared to double-pane windows. The additional glass layer and air spaces help to reduce noise transmission, making them particularly beneficial in areas with high noise levels, such as busy streets or airports.

3. Cost:

   - Double-Pane Windows: Double-pane windows are generally more affordable compared to triple-pane windows. They are a popular choice for homeowners seeking a balance between energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

   - Triple-Pane Windows: Triple-pane windows tend to be more expensive than double-pane windows due to the additional glass and insulating spaces. However, they can provide greater long-term energy savings and improved comfort, which may offset the initial investment over time.

4. Frame Considerations:

   - Both double-pane and triple-pane windows can be combined with various frame materials, such as vinyl, fibreglass, or wood. The choice of frame material can impact the overall energy efficiency, durability, and maintenance requirements of the windows.

When deciding between double-pane and triple-pane windows, consider factors such as your climate, energy efficiency goals, noise considerations, and budget. If you live in an extremely cold climate, have specific sound insulation needs, or prioritize maximum energy efficiency, triple-pane windows may be a preferred choice. However, double-pane windows can still provide significant improvements in insulation and energy efficiency over single-pane windows, and they may be a more cost-effective option for some homeowners. It's recommended to consult with window professionals or contractors who can assess your specific needs and help you make an informed decision based on your priorities and budget.
