Double Hung Windows

Replacing your windows can be challenging, especially if design isn’t really your strong suit. There’s no need for you to worry though. In this entry, we discuss the features of one of the most popular window styles for American homeowners: the double-hung unit.

One-of-a-Kind Look

The benefits of double-hung windows are twofold: beauty and performance. When it comes to appeal, no other window style has the classic, elegant look of the double-hung unit. For this reason, this style often features in traditionally designed homes such as the colonial, the Queen Anne, and the farmhouse.

How do you know if a double-hung unit is the best choice for your home? Here’s a simple trick. Take a look at your Salem roofing. For example, if you have steeply pitched or gabled roofs, they will look great with tall, narrow windows such as the double-hung.

Consider the rest of your home’s design as well. Vertically oriented windows with divided lights suit elaborate architectures. If you have a Queen Anne home, for instance, consider getting oversized double-hung replacements with ornate grille patterns to complement the regal theme of your exterior.

Unmatched Performance

Double-hung windows aren’t all pomp, either. In fact, they are quite functional. For one, they work wonders in terms of ventilation. The double-hung unit comprises two staggered sashes, both of which you can slide up and down. This allows you to easily control the breezes coming in and out of your home.

These units can be very energy-efficient as well. The double-hung replacements from A&A Services, for example, feature UltraCore® window frame insulation to help with indoor cooling and heating. Plus, the seals and weather stripping on many of these units ensure maximum protection from the elements. This way, you can be comfortable no matter what the weather’s like outside.

If you’re looking for replacements with the dual purpose of beauty and performance, invest in double-hung windows. And, for the best of these units in town, turn to A&A Services.
