Double-hung windows can be found in most, if not all, homes nowadays. While these are the most common, people might only ever use them to bring in or shut out air. That said, there are actually several unique ways you can make the most of them. Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City shares three of them in this post.
Double Hung Windows
1. Energy-Efficient Cooling
Trying to cool down in the heat can be expensive if you turn up the air conditioner all day. A greener solution to this is opening your windows, but you might not be satisfied with just one opening. That’s where double-hung windows come in. With them, you can open both sashes and create two openings. The bottom sash allows fresh air to flow in while the top one allows stale air to flow out. This way, you can improve ventilation and cut back on expenses.
2. Flexible Aesthetics
You might like sliding windows, but even your double-hung windows can be custom-made to fit the style of your house. You can choose from a wide array of colors, finishes, and grille patterns to match. They also help improve the value of your residence. With our exclusive Fibrex® frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City can give you customized installation services for both beautiful and durable windows.
3. Easy Cleaning
Since both sashes can be tilted out, homeowners like you will have an easier time keeping your windows clean. This will save you time and effort, and even encourage your safety since you won’t have to go outside and climb your wall just to clean your window.
