Lowes Double-Hung Windows
Single-hung windows are still the most popular type of window in American households, but because of the versatility of double-hung windows, they’ve been sought after as well. Double-hung windows have the same traditional look as single-hung, so they can also be used in virtually any room in the home, whether it’s your bedroom, your family room, or your kitchen.
Single-Hung vs. Double-Hung
Because they’re so similar, there are always questions about the differences between single-hung and double-hung windows. While both offer energy efficiency, double-hung windows allow for better ventilation. Because both the top and bottom sashes of the window can open (as opposed to just the bottom, in single-hung), they can allow more airflow into the room. The sashes can be opened by sliding them up and down or, if you want even more ventilation, you can tilt them outward. This feature also makes the windows easier to clean, since you can access both the inside and outside of the window at the same time.
In addition to ventilation and easy cleaning, double-hung windows can also be safer when it comes to young children. If your windows don’t have screens or your screens can be easily dislodged, you can open the top part of the window instead of the bottom and not have to worry about kids falling through the window.
One feature single-hung windows have over double-hung is their price. Because double-hung are more versatile, they tend to be more expensive than single-hung windows. However, many homeowners find that they’re worth the cost in the long run.
