Double Hung Window Installation in Greater Annapolis Area

What Is a Double Hung Window?

Double-hung windows are an alternative to single-hung windows, like bay windows and sliding windows, and the primary difference between the two types of windows is how many operable sashes they have. The window sash is the glass pane that is enclosed inside the frame of the window. The sash moves up and down in the frame to open and close the window. A double-hung window has two sashes or panes of glass. The top sash can be lowered, the bottom sash can be lifted, or both sashes can be moved at once to allow fresh air into the home, allow odors to escape, or improve overall ventilation and airflow. While single-hung windows are the most common type of window installed in homes, double-hung windows are becoming increasingly popular due to their enhanced insulating properties and improved energy efficiency.

Benefits of Double-Hung Windows

Because a double-hung window has two panes of glass, it is more insulated and energy-efficient than a single-hung window. The biggest benefits of double-hung windows are:

  • Improved airflow, as the upper sash can be lowered to allow hot air to escape, and the bottom sash can be raised to allow cooler air into the home.
  • Enhanced energy-efficiency.
  • Improved insulation.
  • More comfortable temperature inside your home.
  • Easier to clean and maintain as they can be tilted inward easily so that you can clean the interior or exterior of the window from inside your home.
  • Increase the resale value of your home.

When Do You Need Double-Hung Window Replacement?

Like any other part of your home, your windows need care, maintenance, and occasional repairs to function properly and remain safe and secure. Over time, especially if you have not kept up with window maintenance, your windows will become damaged and suffer from wear and tear. If your windows cannot be repaired, they should be replaced. Here are the biggest warning signs that you need double-hung window replacement:

  • Windows won’t open and close easily or can’t be locked.
  • Humidity has made the exterior frames warped or cracked.
  • Windows have suffered from insect or animal damage.
  • You notice recurring cold drafts, increased dust and odors, and more insects in your home.
  • There is condensation between the glass panes.
  • You hear outside noises more clearly.
  • There is visible water damage, mold, or mildew on the window frames or sills.
  • Your utility bills have increased.
  • One or more panes of glass are broken.
  • Your window glass is foggy, discolored, yellow, brown, or cloudy.
