Frequently Asked Questions About Double-Hung Windows

What are the advantages of double-hung windows?

Double-hung windows provide excellent ventilation capabilities and airflow control. When you open both the top and bottom sash on your double-hung window, the bottom will let in the fresh air, while the top will release your home’s indoor air. They are also extremely adaptable to a variety of home styles as they come in an array of styles, sizes, colors, and finishes.

Are double-hung windows better than single-hung windows?

While single-hung windows are more simplistic and may be preferred for authentic looks on historic or older homes, double-hung windows offer several more advantages for modern housing. With their exceptional ventilation and airflow abilities, double-hung windows are also refreshingly easy to clean. They are also safer by design, especially if you have children in the home because you can keep the bottom sash locked and open the top sash to keep fresh air flowing through your house.

How does a double-hung window work?

A double-hung window consists of two sashes, one on top and another on the bottom. (A window sash is the part that holds the glass pane.) Two sashes allow the window to slide open from the top as well as the bottom. Most double-hung windows allow the sashes to tilt in and out as well.

Are double-hung windows worth it?

When you invest in double-hung windows, you are choosing to equip your home with the tools needed for optimal comfort. You’ll likely save some money on utility bills as well! Reducing air leaks by keeping the warm air or cool air indoors, depending on the season, is always in your best interest financially. One final thing to consider is how double-hung windows can raise the resale value of your home. Energy-efficient upgrades are highly desired by homebuyers, so if you plan on selling your house one day, this investment could pay off down the road
