Double-hung windows are one of the most popular window styles you’ll find in American homes. They have two sashes in a single window frame, offering a traditional appearance that matches any home style. However, that’s not the only advantage these windows have.
Easy and Safe Operation
The way the windows open and close makes them a perfect fit in high-traffic areas of the home like patios, corridors and decks. Today’s double-hung windows are also equipped with an interlocking system that shuts the sashes tight. With this, no wind-blown debris or even intruders can do damage to the windows.
Double-hung windows now have features that make cleaning a breeze. Some of them have sashes that can be tilted out so you can wipe both the interior and exterior window components without having to go out of the house. Others have removable sashes. Although they are virtually maintenance-free, every window contractor recommends inspecting the windows to ensure their long-lasting performance.
With double-hung windows, you have the option to open two sashes or just one depending on the level of ventilation you need for your home. Open both, and cool outdoor air enters through the bottom sash while warm indoor air exits through the top sash. The windows can also be equipped with a screen so you can still let fresh air in without worrying about mosquitoes, flies and other bugs.
