The Ultimate Guide to Casement Window Air Conditioners with Heat: A Perfect Solution for All-Season Comfort


When it comes to finding the perfect air conditioning solution for your home, there's no one-size-fits-all answer. Casement window air conditioners with heat are a versatile and efficient option that can provide year-round comfort for your living space. In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore the benefits of these units, how to choose the right one for your needs, and tips for installation and maintenance.

What is a Casement Window Air Conditioner with Heat?

Casement window air conditioners are specifically designed for narrow, vertically-opening windows, commonly referred to as casement or crank windows. These units come with a built-in heating function, allowing them to provide both cooling and heating capabilities, making them an excellent choice for all-season comfort.

Benefits of Casement Window Air Conditioners with Heat

1. Space-saving design: Casement window air conditioners are compact and designed to fit into narrow windows, making them ideal for small living spaces or rooms with limited window options.

2. Energy efficiency: These units are typically more energy-efficient compared to traditional window air conditioners, as they have a tighter seal with the window, reducing air leakage.

3. All-season comfort: With both cooling and heating functions, casement window air conditioners can provide year-round temperature control, eliminating the need for separate heating and cooling systems.

4. Easy installation: Installing a casement window air conditioner is generally a simple process that doesn't require professional help, saving you time and money.

Choosing the Right Casement Window Air Conditioner with Heat

When selecting a casement window air conditioner, consider the following factors:

1. Room size: Measure the square footage of the room you want to cool and heat. This will help you determine the appropriate unit size, measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs). As a general rule, you'll need 20 BTUs per square foot of space.

2. Window size: Measure the dimensions of your casement window to ensure the air conditioner will fit properly. Most casement window air conditioners are designed for windows between 15 to 16 inches wide and 20 to 40 inches tall.

3. Energy efficiency: Look for a unit with a high Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) to save on energy costs. An EER of 10 or higher is considered efficient.

4. Noise level: Consider the noise level of the unit, measured in decibels (dB). A quiet unit will typically have a noise level of 50 dB or lower.

5. Additional features: Look for features such as programmable thermostats, remote controls, and air filters to enhance the functionality and convenience of your casement window air conditioner.

Installation Tips

Follow these tips for a smooth installation process:

1. Read the manual: Before attempting installation, read the manufacturer's instructions thoroughly to ensure you have all necessary tools and materials.

2. Check the window: Inspect the window for any damage or defects that may interfere with the installation process.

3. Install the support bracket: Most casement window air conditioners come with a support bracket that needs to be installed first. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper installation.

4. Secure the unit: Place the air conditioner in the window, ensuring it sits securely on the support bracket. Attach any necessary mounting hardware according to the manufacturer's instructions.

5. Seal the gaps: Use weatherstripping or foam insulation to seal any gaps between the air conditioner and window frame to prevent air leakage.

Maintenance Tips

Proper maintenance of your casement window air conditioner with heat will ensure it runs efficiently and lasts longer. Follow these tips:

1. Clean the filter: Regularly clean or replace the air filter to maintain optimal airflow and efficiency.

2. Inspect the unit: Check for any signs of wear or damage, such as frayed cords or broken parts. Address any issues promptly.

3. Clean the coils: Keep the evaporator and condenser coils clean to ensure efficient heat transfer.

4. Check the window seal: Inspect the seal between the air conditioner and window frame for any gaps or wear. Replace weatherstripping or foam insulation as needed.

By understanding the benefits, choosing the right model, and following proper installation and maintenance tips, a casement window air conditioner with heat can provide you with an energy-efficient, all-season solution for your home's temperature control needs.

Casement Window


Casement windows are the most common style of window. They feature hinged panels that swing open and closed. Casement windows are available in single panels or multiple panels. The direction a door swings, either to the right or the left, is called the handing. In addition to handing, window are identified as either inswing or outswing depending on whether they open into the house or towards the outside.

Doorwin provides one-stop solution for professional windows doors manufacturer and installation. We have been serving customers with our high quality and branded products in United States, Asia and worldwide.


This newly built private house is in Sydney, Australia. The area occupied by the fenestration system in our scheduled design drawings was up to more than 110 square meters. A wide range of design details made the perfect mix of modern aesthetics and traditional sophistication, the simulated vertical hung windows with tilt & turn opening systems in this home are absolutely breathtaking. SDLS (Simulated Divided Lites with Spacer Bar) brings some historical vintage feeling to the whole building without losing any energy saving performance. Long narrow fixed windows creating larger-than-life expenses, coupled with German high-end systems made this project stand out from the rest.

Simulated Hung Window with Tilt & Turn Openings

Doorwin’s 61S simulated hung windows with tilt & turn openings is a respectful modernization of a classic architectural masterwork.

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.

Large Energy Efficient Fixed Windows

Our well-crafted bespoke systems enhance the functionality and panoramic view of this modern house.

Huge, fixed glass walls up to seven meters long and two meters high bring great lighting and open views, making it really refreshing to the mind. Five meters high long narrow windows give the whole building a contemporary aesthetic.
