Double-Hung Windows: The Quintessential Home WindowDecember 12, 2018
The double-hung window design enjoys a lofty spot as the most commonly installed window for homes. It’s so common that you’ll find them gracing the exteriors of traditional and contemporary homes alike.
In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee shares why this window is an all-time American favorite.
The double-hung and casement window are two replacement windows that provide maximum ventilation. What’s unique about double-hung windows is that they give homeowners more control over the airflow entering the home.
Opening the bottom sash lets in cool air while the top sash admits warm air. You can also open both sashes for maximum ventilation by simultaneously cycling both warm and cold air. This is a feature that’s unique to the design and gives it an edge over casement windows, especially for smaller rooms.
Double-hung windows are also hardware-friendly. Its design allows homeowners to easily fit hardware like air conditioning units with ease and without radically modifying the design of the window. The sash actually secures ductless mini-split AC units in place and makes them easy to remove, too.
Easy to Maintain
These windows are the easiest to maintain since it’s possible to move both sashes to reach the opposite end of the glass. Some double-hung windows even tilt out and instead of sliding up and down, making them even more convenient to clean and care for.
