As a window company, we’ve met many clients who’ve wanted double-hung windows. After all, they are one of the most popular window types today. With easy operation and ventilation, it’s one of the most useful types too. However, there are ways to maximize it. Here are four different methods to make the most of your installation.
1. Cooling Your Room
Cooling your home is a good way to save money. Energy bills can increase with poor air circulation, and double-hung windows do just that effectively. Look for those with two operable sashes. That way, you can move them both into the middle. This will increase the amount of air that goes inside. You can also use it during cooler days, opening one sash for a nice breeze.
2. Better Security
Double-hung windows are easy to secure. They can have hardware added to the frame, like locks. These can make your home a safer place. We offer different security hardware, as well as various screens and glass types, for better privacy. Consider these options for your replacement windows.
Cleaning these windows is easier than cleaning other types because of its reach. It can be dangerous to go to the second story to clean the sash. That’s why we offer inward-tilting varieties, to make maintenance safer.
4. Holding AC Units
Unlike picture or casement windows, double-hung windows can accommodate air conditioners. Rather than making a new opening, or tearing down a window, double-hung windows can simply slide up. With the right size, you can install your AC unit in the space created and enjoy cooler temperatures.
