Double Hung Window Benefits
For a traditional style with several advantages, consider double hung windows. Double hung windows are developed to open from the top or the bottom. The top sash glides down and the reduced sash glides up. Single hung windows look similar, but only the reduced sash opens. The versatility of double hung windows provides for a variety of ventilation options, but the advantages don't stop there.
- Ease of Cleaning - Most contemporary double hung windows are developed for ease of cleaning. Both the higher and reduced sashes tilt in. This means that you can clean the outsides of high windows from the inside, eliminating the need to hassle – and danger- of climbing ladders, scaffolding, or using long-handled tools.
- Architectural Versatility – Double hung windows complement many styles of structure. Cape Cod houses, multi-story Victorian houses, colonials, and bungalows all look great with double hung windows.
- Energy Efficiency – Using double hung windows in new construction provides many advantages, but changing windows in aging homes or businesses is particularly important. New windows can drastically reduce heating and cooling costs. Old windows are inherently inefficient because they were not designed with energy efficiency in mind. Over the years the joints have loosened and rotted, increasing the amount of air infiltration into the home. Replacing old windows with new double hung windows will reduce air conditioning expenses and improve the comfort of your home.
