Double-Hung Window Buyers Guide

What are Double-Hung Windows?

Double-hung windows got their name because both sashes operate independently of each other within the window frame. Unlike single-hung windows that have a fixed sash on top and operable sash on the bottom, double-hung windows can be opened from the top and bottom at the same time. This functionality is excellent for air circulation. Opening the top sash allows rising warm air to escape while cooler air enters through the bottom sash. Double-hung windows also have inherent safety properties. Opening just the top sash creates an opportunity for ventilation while keeping kids and pets safe.

Double-Hung vs. Single-Hung Windows

What’s the difference between a double-hung and single-hung window? Single-hung windows have a fixed top sash; only the bottom sash opens and closes. This arrangement means single-hung windows don’t offer the benefits of air circulation through both sashes like double-hung windows do. Also, single-hung windows can be more difficult to clean. While the bottom sash may tilt in for easy cleaning from inside the house, the exterior of the top sash will have to be cleaned from outside. This is especially challenging on upper-level windows.

Double-Hung vs. Casement Windows

What’s the difference between a double-hung and a casement window? Though both double-hung and casement windows are generally tall and rectangular, casement windows swing open on side-mounted hinges, while double-hung sashes move up and down within the frame. The choice between double-hung and casement often comes down to location. Areas that are hard to reach, such as over a kitchen window, may benefit from a casement that opens easily with a crank instead of trying to lift the sash from a distance. However, casements may not be ideal if there’s an obstruction near the window, such as a tree or air conditioning equipment that the casement could swing into. In those cases, double-hungs are your best bed. Sometimes casements and double-hungs pair nicely together. Consider a beautiful window wall with a double-hung in the center and swing-out casements on either side!
