What is a Double Hung Window?
Also known as a double-sash window, a double hung window has two moving sashes that slide up and down vertically. Both sashes on a double hung window can open inward to allow for more ventilation and make them easier to clean. Double hung windows are a popular type of window and are commonly used in homes as they provide many options in materials to match any look or aesthetic. Standard double hung window sizes start at 24 inches horizontally and go to 48 inches. Their height ranges from 36 to 72 inches.
Single Hung Vs Double Hung Windows
Single hung windows, or single sash windows, have a non-moving fixed upper sash and a sliding lower sash. The lower sash can slide up to allow for more air flow, but the upper sash remains stationary. Unlike double hung windows, single hung windows cannot open inwardly, making them more difficult to clean when installed on the second story or higher. The main advantage of single hung windows over the double hung type is that they are less expensive to manufacture and install since they have fewer moving parts. Contact J-Tech today to find the type of window that’s best for your home or building.
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I CLEAN DOUBLE HUNG WINDOWS?
One of the benefits of double hung windows is that they can be easily cleaned without the need to go outside. Simply slide open the window sashes one at a time and clean the inside and outside of the glass. We recommend using a soft cloth or sponge to clean the glass and frames.
WHERE ARE DOUBLE HUNG WINDOWS USED?
Double hung windows are commonly used in homes and residential buildings, but they can also be found in commercial and institutional buildings. Double hung windows fit a variety of home styles, including modern and contemporary homes. They can also be used in a variety of rooms, including living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms.
CAN YOU INSTALL A DOUBLE HUNG WINDOW SIDEWAYS?
While it may seem like an easy task to install a vertical window horizontally, it’s best to install windows in the direction they were intended. Windows with the wrong orientation may not be able to protect against moisture as well. Instead of installing double hung windows horizontally, try installing sliding windows for a similar result.
