The main difference between single-hung and double-hung windows is the way in which they open and close. Single-hung windows have a fixed upper sash and a lower sash that can be moved vertically. For double-hung windows, the lower sash opens upward while the upper sash slides downward.
Double-hung windows are known for their ventilation capabilities. Their unique design allows homeowners to control the amount of fresh air they let into their rooms. Opening the top sash allows cool, fresh air in while allowing warm indoor air to escape. With these windows, you can breathe in fresh air and keep your home comfortable no matter the season.
Double-hung windows are incredibly easy to maintain. They feature tilt-out sashes, which make it simple to wipe them clean from inside your home. This makes them ideal for two or three-story homes. Whether you want to replace your existing windows or upgrade your current ones, double-hung windows from BGV can be a very beautiful and durable option.
