Double hung windows have always been popular with American homeowners. In fact, if you’re like many, you probably have double hung windows in your home right now. If you’re in the market for new windows, however, it’s important to understand what they have to offer, instead of simply defaulting to choosing windows you’ve always had.
Double hung windows are great because they offer:
Timeless design – Whatever home style you might have, you can count on double hung windows to complement your property well. And, with a timeless design, they don’t easily date, allowing your home to look good from the curb no matter the year.
Flexible ventilation control – Double hung windows are characterized by two operable sashes. This means you can open and close both sashes depending on the level of ventilation you want. You can even open both at the same time, letting warm, stale air escape from the top while fresh, cool air comes in from the bottom.
Easy operation and maintenance – For a window to be effective, you have to be able to use it. This is no problem at all with double hung windows. Simply slide a sash up or down, and you’re set. Double hung windows with tilt-in sashes also simplify maintenance by making it possible to clean the exterior side of a window without stepping outside your home.
Space-saving build – Double hung windows are installed flush against walls and don’t require clearance to operate, making them ideal for tight areas and those that get a lot of traffic.
