Single-Hung vs. Double-Hung Windows

Single-Hung vs. Double-Hung Windows

Are you in the market for new windows for your home? If so, and if you’ve done some research, you know that there are multiple window styles available, including single hung and double hung. Both are popular, but what’s the difference between the two and which is the right choice for your home?

Difference Between Single and Double Hung Windows

Single-hung windows are a classic choice and have been installed in homes for generations. Their traditional design features a single movable sash that lifts open. You can typically find single-hung windows on older homes.

Double-hung windows have the same basic operation, but instead of one movable and one static pane, they feature two functional sashes—one opens up and one opens down. The benefits of this modern design allow for maximum airflow when both sashes are open, as well as easy maintenance as the sashes can tilt inward. This allows double-hung windows to be cleaned from inside the home, a much easier chore than cleaning them from the outside, particularly for multi-story homes.

Where to Buy Double-Hung Windows

If your home is due for new windows and you’re considering having double-hung windows installed, you can confidently turn to Dreamstyle Remodeling. We offer our customers the leading replacement windows on the market, manufactured by the renowned company, Pella®. Pella double-hung windows not only feature the functionality and easy maintenance noted above, but they also include two panes of low-E glass that can help improve your home’s energy efficiency.
