Benefits of Double Hung Windows – Loveland Colorado

Double hung windows are becoming increasingly popular. They are available in vinyl, wood,or metal frames, and can be easily replaced and cleaned. They can be operated from either the top or bottom section of glass and this makes cleaning them very easy. Although they are more expensive than single hung windows, they provide amenities that are not provided by single hung windows.

Some of the benefits of double hung windows are highlighted in this article.

Cleaning and Accessibility
As stated earlier, double hung windows are easy to clean. They can be cleaned from inside of the home. The windows can be rotated in while both sides of the upper and lower levels of the window can be cleaned. You can also go for the full screen, or a half screen. The screen can be mounted either inside or outside of the window.

Ventilation and Safety
Double hung windows provide the opportunity of opening only the top portion of the window. Thus, cross ventilation can have access in the home, thereby reducing energy costs. Simply open the top and bottom of the window at the same time. This gives room for warm air to leave through the top window while the cooler air enters through the lower window.

Double hung windows also help to ensure safety. They can be open all day without worrying about the screen falling off the windows. This option is not available in single hung windows.

Energy efficiency
Double hung windows are energy efficient. Precise measurements are, however, required to reduce the leakage of water and air. Double hung windows can quadruple weather stripping. This helps in preventing heat from escaping and cold air from having access into the home. In other words, the need to adjust the thermostat up is eliminated.

Double hung windows are one of the oldest forms of windows which are still readily available. Although the style has slightly changed over the years, they still possess the same features found in the original models. The modern improvements in these windows have made them to be more energy efficient.

    I need to replace my vinyl windows because I don’t like having to wipe them down from the outside. I like that you mentioned how you can rotate double hung windows and clean both sides from inside the house. If I get double hung vinyl windows, I can clean them without ever leaving the house.

    I love how you said that a double-hung window is safer because it can be open all day without any problems!! This is so nice!! It gets pretty warm where we are living right now and having the option to keep the windows open to take advantage of the breeze would be nice. The winter is almost here so I wonder if we might be able to save a bit of money by getting new windows installed.

    I want to make sure that I choose the right kind of windows. It makes sense that double hung windows would be nice! The fact that they are so easy to clean and maintain is definitely a plus.
