Double-hung windows are the most popular window style, and they remain the ideal choice for bedrooms. There are many other window styles that could work for your bedrooms, but double-hung windows are the favorite. Here’s why:
Proper ventilation is essential for keeping indoor air fresh and free of particulates, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other indoor air pollutants. To encourage proper air circulation, you need at least two openings in the room, one to vent out stale indoor air and one to admit fresh, outdoor air. Ventilating your interior for at least 15 minutes a day helps keep indoor air pollutants at low levels.
With most window styles, you will need two windows to accomplish this. But for small bedrooms that can only accommodate one window, or if opening two windows at the same time is inconvenient, double-hung windows are ideal. A double-hung window allows the opening of a top vent and a bottom inlet at the same time.
More Comfortable Bedroom
Part of what makes bedrooms comfortable is the presence of energy-efficient windows, which keep drafts out and heated or air-conditioned air in. In addition to the tight mechanism that seals the areas between sashes and frame, the combination of our Fibrex® material frames, High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages and precise installation process helps ensure optimal energy efficiency.
Plus, our double-hung windows are easy to clean and maintain. In addition to the low-maintenance qualities of our Fibrex® frames, the sashes can be tilted inward for easy cleaning.
Making our products as convenient as they are efficient and beautiful is a huge part of what makes Renewal by Andersen® windows popular. For example, like our inward tilting double-hung windows, our gliding windows are easy to clean, thanks to their removable sashes.
