The Ultimate Guide to Air Conditioner Options for Casement Windows

Casement windows, with their unique design and functionality, can be a stylish addition to any home. However, their distinctive structure can pose a challenge when it comes to finding the perfect air conditioner. But worry not! In this comprehensive guide, we will explore various air conditioner options specifically designed for casement windows, ensuring that you stay cool and comfortable all summer long.

What are Casement Windows?

Before diving into the air conditioner options, let's first understand what casement windows are. These windows are hinged on one side and open outward, usually operated by a crank or lever. They offer excellent ventilation and unobstructed views, making them a popular choice among homeowners.

Types of Air Conditioners for Casement Windows

When it comes to air conditioners for casement windows, there are three main types to consider:

1. Casement Window Air Conditioners

These air conditioners are specifically designed for casement windows. They are compact, vertical units that fit snugly into the window frame without obstructing the window's operation. Some popular models include the Frigidaire FFRS0822S1 and the Perfect Aire 3PASC10000.

May require modifications to the window for proper venting

3. Mini-Split Air Conditioners

Mini-split air conditioners consist of an indoor and outdoor unit connected by a small conduit. The indoor unit is mounted on the wall, providing cool air directly into the room without the need for a window.

Factors to Consider When Choosing an Air Conditioner for Casement Windows

When selecting the perfect air conditioner for your casement window, consider the following factors:

Cooling Capacity

Measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs), the cooling capacity determines how effectively an air conditioner can cool a room. Choose a unit with the appropriate BTUs for your room size to ensure optimal performance.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is crucial in reducing energy consumption and lowering your electricity bills. Look for air conditioners with a high Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) or those with an ENERGY STAR rating.

Noise Level

Air conditioners can generate noise during operation, which can be disruptive in living spaces. Opt for units with a lower decibel (dB) rating for quieter operation.


Consider the ease of installation when selecting an air conditioner. Casement window air conditioners and portable units are relatively easy to install, while mini-split systems require professional installation.


Lastly, factor in your budget when choosing an air conditioner. While casement window air conditioners and mini-split systems may have a higher upfront cost, they often provide better energy efficiency and long-term savings.

Tips for Installing Air Conditioners in Casement Windows

Here are some helpful tips for installing air conditioners in casement windows:

1. Measure the window opening: Ensure that the air conditioner you choose fits the dimensions of your casement window.

2. Check for additional support: Some casement window air conditioners may require additional support brackets to hold the weight of the unit.

3. Seal gaps: Use weatherstripping or foam insulation to seal any gaps around the air conditioner to prevent drafts and improve energy efficiency.

4. Follow manufacturer instructions: Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines for installation and maintenance to ensure the proper functioning and longevity of your air conditioner.

With this comprehensive guide, you can now confidently select the perfect air conditioner for your casement windows, ensuring a comfortable and cool living space during those hot summer months. Happy shopping!

Why choose the tilt and turn opening method?

Because it generally has better air seals than sliding, single hung, or double hung window frames. Tilt and turn windows form a complete seal when fully closed, this means they are less prone to water leakage, and cold draughts and you’ll keep more of your heating indoors where it belongs. They can be opened in the upper tilt way to ventilate at a minimum opening status and are easy to clean outside of the glass; when there’s a good day, they can be opened as normal inward casement windows.
