Double-hung windows have been the go-to window style ever since the 17th century. Until today, many homes are still using them because of the many benefits they offer. Apart from being easy to use and maintain, these units improve the comfort, aesthetics, energy efficiency, and overall functionality of your home. Let your window replacement expert, WMGB Home Improvement, discuss three smart ways to make the most of them.
With double-hung windows, you can open both sashes to allow optimum air circulation in your home. While warm air escapes through the top sash, cool breeze enters through the bottom. This way, you can enjoy better air quality, making your home cooler and more comfortable. You also have the option to adjust only one sash if you’re only needing partial air flow.
Apart from keeping your space cozier, our double-hung, vinyl replacement windows have moderate to above average R-values, reducing your cooling and heating costs. We also use low emissivity glass which effectively controls heat entry and escape. They are coated with oxidized metal layers as well, allowing adequate light penetration while reflecting heat waves. We offer ENERGY STAR®-certified windows from Simonton® and Alside® too.
Boost Aesthetic Appeal
Double-hung windows feature a classic and timeless design, exuding an air of elegance and tradition. They are available in various colors, grille patterns, and finishes, making it easier to complement most decor. We can help you look for the perfect combination that will seamlessly blend with your architectural design, while leaving your guests a lasting impression.
Our double-hung replacement windows may come in fiberglass materials which are known for their durability, keeping your home beautiful for a long time. Wood is also a good option since it is aesthetically versatile. You can paint or stain them to achieve the perfect look for your home.
Enhanced Safety and Security
Another great feature of double-hung windows is that they open vertically. They do not project outward or crank out, reducing the risk of accidents, especially if your property is located in high-traffic areas. This is especially important if you have kids or pets in your home.
