What is a Double-Hung Replacement Window?

With a double-hung window, the top and bottom sash can move up and down. With a single-hung window, the top sash does not move. There are many great benefits of double-hung windows. In this article, we will discuss some reasons why these windows are so popular.

A Double-Hung Replacement Window is Easy to Clean

Double-hung windows are easier to clean than single-hung windows. With double-hung windows, you have the convenience of being able to completely clean both sides of each sash from inside your home!  

Ventilate Your Home with a Double-Hung Replacement Window 

Nobody likes unpleasant household odors. Some people think that using air fresheners will make things better, but we all know that it doesn’t. Attempting to mask the smell with strong-smelling chemicals does not usually improve things more often than not, it makes the room smell worse. This logic is similar to not showering for a week and hoping that you can cover up the smell with some strong perfume. 

Luckily, you have other options. The best way to get rid of lingering funky odors is by opening up the windows. If you have double-hung windows, you can open them from the top and bottom at the same time! Which makes a big difference when you are trying to circulate airflow to ventilate your home.

A Double-Hung Replacement Window is Child and Pet-Friendly

If you have young children or pets at home, you may be hesitant to open your windows because of safety concerns. However, if you had double-hung windows, you would have the option of locking the bottom sash and only opening the top half of the window!
