When it comes to the design of most things, form follows function. But when you look at a double hung window, you will see that form and function are both important aspects in its design. Although you have endless choices when it comes to choosing a replacement window, you’ll soon see why double hung windows are your best option. Here are some reasons to consider double hung windows.
Part of choosing a replacement window involves getting sufficient ventilation. Remember that any room in your home needs two openings that can circulate air. The air needs some way to get in (an inlet) and some way to get out (an outlet). But you might run into problems if the room you are looking to upgrade only has enough space for one window to be installed. Double hung windows can give that room both of the openings that it needs. Warmer, stuffier air rises to the top and is vented out through the upper sash, while cooler and fresher air comes in through the lower sash. Larger windows mean greater ventilation potential.
In addition to providing better ventilation, your new double hung windows will also be more attractive. No matter what room they are installed in, a double hung window lends the room an aesthetic benefit because of how sleek and smooth they look. You can also decide to customize these windows however you like. What style goes with the rest of the room? Are you trying to achieve some contrast? The distinctive patterns on double hung windows can complement the rest of your home’s exterior.
Maintaining your double hung windows is a simple task. Even if the windows are set in a room on an upper floor, you can quickly tilt them open when it’s time to clean them. You can stay inside and clean the windows without the need to risk climbing on a ladder.
