A double hung window is a vertical window that has two operable sashes. The two main benefits for this operating style are: maximum circulation – with the ability to open both sashes, and tilting – where the upper and lower sashes tilt inward allowing both the interior and exterior glass to be cleaned from inside your home.
If you’re currently aiming to change the look of your property, Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle highlights more reasons why double hung windows are worth the price.
- Increased safety. This type of window is specifically designed to eliminate the risk of accidents in high-traffic areas like walkways, decks and even patios. It does not crank out nor project outwards. It is guaranteed that possible intruders will have a hard time trying to break in as it is fully lockable.
- Energy-Efficient. You can definitely save on your energy costs with double-hung windows. It does not only bring in a sufficient amount of natural light, but also enough ventilation. Moreover, double hung energy-efficient windows allow for enough fresh air to come inside and expel the warmth indoors because they can easily be opened from both top and bottom sashes.
- Versatile. What makes this window style timeless is its neat and simple design. Double-hung window replacement units never look out of place in whatever room they’re installed. In fact, you can also customize them so they’re able to work well with any architectural style. They are available in a wide selection of color combinations, hardware finishes, and grille patterns, making it easy for you to match them with your home’s overall look.
- Easy Cleaning. SInce both sashes move, they both tilt in for easy cleaning. You will never have to stand on a ladder to clean or hire someone to clean your windows again.
