Your Frequently Asked Questions Answered

Hung Windows FAQ

Single-hung and double-hung windows hinge on one key difference: the number of movable sashes. Single-hung offers a fixed top sash and a movable bottom sash, while double-hung allows you to open both sashes for more ventilation control and easier cleaning, especially on higher floors. This flexibility comes with a slightly higher price tag for double-hung windows, but both types deliver a classic look that complements various architectural styles. Consider your ventilation needs, cleaning preferences, budget, and desired aesthetics to determine which window reigns supreme for your home.

Deciding between single-hung and double-hung windows hinges on your priorities. Single-hung windows are budget-friendly, easy to use, and offer a classic look, but limit ventilation and cleaning options. Double-hung windows provide superior ventilation control, easier cleaning, and the ability to control natural light, but come at a slightly higher cost. Consider your ventilation needs, cleaning preferences, budget, window placement, and architectural style to determine which window reigns supreme for your home. Consulting a window contractor can provide personalized recommendations for your specific needs.

Double-hung windows truly shine when it comes to ventilation. Unlike single-hung windows where only the bottom sash moves, double-hung windows allow you to open both the top and bottom sashes independently. This provides fantastic control over airflow in your home. Want to release hot air or steam? Open the top sash. Looking to draw in cool, fresh air? Open the bottom sash. You can even create a natural chimney effect for improved air circulation by opening both sashes slightly. This flexibility makes double-hung windows a great choice for those who prioritize fresh air and a comfortable living environment.

Single-hung windows may boast a slight edge in energy efficiency due to one less sash for air leakage. But the bigger impact comes from the glass quality (think double-paned with low-emissivity coatings) and frame material's insulation properties. A well-made double-hung window with these features can outperform a single-hung window with lower quality materials. Ultimately, the difference is minimal. Prioritize high-performance glass, insulating frames, and professional installation for either window type to maximize energy savings.

Homeowners choose hung windows (both single and double) for several reasons:

  • Ventilation: Hung windows, particularly double-hung, excel at ventilation control. The ability to open both top and bottom sashes allows for strategic airflow, directing hot air out or drawing cool air in.
  • Ease of Cleaning: Double-hung windows are easier to clean, especially on higher floors, because you can tilt or fully open both sashes to access the entire glass surface.
  • Classic Look: Both single and double-hung windows offer a timeless design that complements a variety of architectural styles, from traditional to contemporary.
  • Affordability: Single-hung windows are a budget-friendly option compared to other window styles like casement windows or picture windows.

So, if you prioritize good ventilation, easy cleaning, a classic aesthetic, and potentially cost-effectiveness, then hung windows are strong contenders for your home.
