Double hung windows are among the most enduring window styles. They first gained popularity in the 18th century, and they remain a staple of American architecture. Although modern manufacturing techniques have evolved throughout the years, they have had little effect on the design and function of double hung windows.
But why use double hung windows at all, apart from being faithful to a traditional home? Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City discusses the other benefits you can get from them.
Double hung windows are good for ventilation, specifically the balanced circulation of air in a room. You can move the two sashes of this window to create two openings: one at the top, the other at the bottom. One pulls fresh air in and the other cycles stale air out. They are also perfect for small rooms that can accommodate just one window. Plus, they’re excellent windows when you have limited space in or outside because they don’t swing out.
New residential windows can increase your home’s comfort level. They can also be used alone or combined with other types of windows, depending on your preferences.
Double hung windows do not require hinges to operate, which means they can support the weight of large glass areas. At Renewal by Andersen, we create all our replacement windows to fit, so we can make larger-than-usual double hung windows to let more light into your living space. They also come with Low-E glass that can minimize the harmful effects of UV rays on your furnishings.
