A single-hung window is a window type where the upper sash remains closed at all times to provide a neat appearance, while the lower sash can be opened to provide additional ventilation when needed.
This window type is known for its energy efficiency, which makes them an excellent choice for homes looking to save money on their energy bills. In addition to saving on energy costs, single-hung windows are also a great option for those who prefer a more traditional style of window, or those who are looking for a window that doesn’t take up a lot of space in their home.
This style of window is commonly found in older single-family homes and is relatively rare in newer homes and apartments. They provide a unique look that is often preferred by traditionalists, but they also come with certain challenges that double-hung windows don’t have. Most notably, single-hung windows are more difficult to clean and maintain than double-hung windows. And although they won’t allow as much natural light or airflow as a double-hung window, single-hung windows are often the more affordable option.
