Features of Single Hung Windows
Single hung windows are among the most commonly installed windows in America. If you’re not exactly sure what they are, picture vertically oriented windows that slide up and down. As opposed to double hung windows, only the bottom sash is operable while the upper sash remains fixed. For added aesthetic appeal and more natural light, single hung windows are often styled with an arched or specialty shaped top.
Benefits of Installing Single Hung Windows in Maryland, DC, and Virginia
- Security: Because they only open in one direction, there are fewer potential points of failure in a single hung window’s locking mechanism. It’s also easier to lock up at night or for the season with only a single lock to engage on each window.
- Energy efficiency: Fixed windows are the most efficient type of window because air infiltration is extremely minimal. Since single hung windows only feature one movable sash, less air makes its way through the fixed sash, even as the window ages and settles or warps slightly. Less air infiltration means lower heating and cooling bills.
- Space saving versatility: Single hung windows are popular in bedrooms, studies, living rooms, and hallways because of their versatile design. Rooms overlooking high-traffic sidewalks or patios benefit from windows that slide rather than pivot outward. This allows for extra sunlight and ventilation without taking up valuable outdoor living space.
- Cost: If you’re trying to purchase new windows on a budget, and you don’t need to operate the upper sash, single hung windows are a great choice. With fewer moving parts than double hung windows, they’re often more affordable.
