Double Hung Windows
One of the most popular types of windows because of the ability to open from both the bottom and top. Double hung windows are well suited for almost any room, providing good view, air flow, and spacing.
What is a Double Hung Window?
A double-hung window is comprised of two distinct panes, also known as “sashes” that are placed back-to-back with each other. The unique part of a double hung window is that the top sash can be slid down to open from the top, or the bottom sash can be slid upwards to open from the bottom. This provides the unique ability to create air flow from the top and bottom of the window. A latching mechanism can lock either or both panes in place.
These windows are perhaps the most common home window installation out there because of their great performance and overall affordability. A double hung window does not provide the same type of insulation benefits as other windows because of the two-sash nature of the window, therefore it’s important to inspect and maintain the seals on your window installation fairly regularly.
Because of how they open, double hung windows are the ideal window for hallways or bedrooms where furniture and other objects can be placed nearby without obstructing the window. These windows also come in a huge variety of styles and sizes, allowing you to easily match the window with the style and color of your home.
