Home/Posts/News and Events/Window Style Series: Focus on Double-Hung Window
6 steps

Double-hung windows—a popular choice among homeowners—have been used in the country for a long time. That’s because, regardless of the architectural style or layout of a home, a double-hung unit can fit in just right. A&A Services has compiled a list of this classic’s most appealing features:

1. Size

Double-hung replacement windows in Salem can be made into a variety of sizes to fit the opening in your wall as precisely as possible. Often tall and narrow, these units are just right for a number of configurations and placement options. You can have them singly placed and spaced apart for rooms that require more privacy—like your bedrooms, for instance. At the same time, you can have them side by side to provide for greater lighting—as in a wide dining area.

2. Design

One of the most endearing characteristics of double-hung windows is the simplicity of their design. As the name implies, these windows feature both of the sashes opening—it does this by sliding up and down the frame. Apart from being a simple enough mechanism to operate, it’s also very sturdy and durable—not prone to breaking down.

3. Ventilation

Because of their easy operation, double-hung windows can help regulate the flow of air in and out of your home. You can use them in making sure your homes are cool (or warm) when you need them to be—all without sacrificing views and lighting.

4. Energy Efficiency

Lastly, double-hung windows are your best bet when you want value for your money. They’re right up there with casements as the most energy-efficient window styles.
