What are double hung windows?

When you think of a rustic countryside home, you probably think of a hillside cottage with double hung windows and a picket fence.

The charming double sash aesthetic was once a traditional part of every UK home. The trend sailed all the way to the USA during colonization, and it’s remained here ever since. Let’s find out if they’re the window design of your dreams.

Double hung windows rely on two sliding panels that can open over one another from the top or bottom. They can tilt inward, too, so you’ll finally be able to clean your second story glass without a ladder.

Double sashes typically include a simple grid that looks as though it jumped straight out of a fairytale. They’re more than their beauty, though. They boost ventilation, allowing your HVAC system to achieve its thermostat setting more easily. The long-term results pay for themselves through lighter utility bills.


Are double hung windows energy efficient?

Standard double hung windows are remarkably airtight, but their sashes do increase air filtration. You can reduce thermal transfer by adding energy efficient features. Contemporary glazing can reduce your solar energy loss without limiting your natural light.

You might also choose liquid crystal layers to achieve outstanding translucency without losing transparency. Double hung windows are usually about 19mm thick, but if you’re serious about your insulation, thicker double-pane glass is an option.


Are double hung windows a good investment?

A window upgrade can have a dramatic effect on your curb appeal. It’s the perfect way to breathe new life into your architect’s vision.

It’s an important investment that has a direct impact on the value of your home, adding thousands of dollars to its market value. Window upgrades have an average return on investment of 85%. Double hung windows typically offer a higher ROI than their single hung counterparts.


Are double hung windows expensive?

The market offers a varied price range of between $400 and $900 per window. It’s within your power to dial back your costs by choosing pocket-friendly features like single-pane glass and vinyl frames.

Don’t assume a cheaper upfront cost is cheaper over the long-term, though. Spending more on your investment could save you money in the form of lighter utility bills and a higher property value. If you choose Energy Star windows, you may even earn a $200 rebate.


Which are cheaper? Double-hung or casement windows?

Double-hung windows are usually 10% cheaper than casement windows. The latter offers better energy efficiency because it forms a tighter seal when closed.

Casement windows also need a more robust window frame because they open 100%. Double-hung products are more widely used, so if you’re shooting for a higher property value, they’re the windows to choose.


How do double-hung windows work?

In days of yore, double-hung windows opened via weighted counterbalances. To open them, you’ll unlock the locking mechanism and slide the pane up. Then you’ll use a simple mechanism to prevent the sashes from moving.

Another click will allow you to tilt the window inwards on cleaning day. The simplicity of their operation makes them highly durable. Many last over 150 years, but you can bank on a lifespan of at least 15 to 20 years.

Maybe you’re looking for the edgiest fashions of the season. Maybe you prioritize insulation power and energy-efficiency. Perhaps you’re more interested in timeless designs wrought from wood.

Whatever your priorities, double-hung windows can adapt to them. They’re fully customizable, so they’ll fit your needs like a pair of skinny jeans.
