What Are Double Hung Windows?

In a standard single hung window, there are two sashes present within the window frame, but the top sash is fixed, leaving only the lower sash operable. In the case of a double-hung window, both sashes are suspended and can be opened and closed independently. This is done using a pair of grooves located on the side jambs so that each of the sashes can slide independently without interacting, allowing for unobstructed opening.

Advantages of Double-Hung Windows

As one of the most iconic and classic window designs on the market, double-hung windows are beneficial to own. When selecting double-hung windows, you can expect:

  • Excellent ventilation: With both sashes operational, homeowners can choose to have a section of both the top and bottom window open at once, providing free-flowing fresh air for your home.
  • Supreme diversity: Double hung windows come in nearly limitless design and material types, from double-hung windows with or without muntins to a wide range of colors.
  • Simple maintenance: In double-hung windows, the sashes can be tilted inward into your home, making cleaning the sashes, tracks, and glass very easy and safe.
  • Energy efficiency and comfort: Modern double-hung windows come with a huge range of efficiency options including Low-E glass, double-pane and triple-pane varieties, and additional insulation incorporated into the frame.

Double-Hung vs. Single-Hung Windows 

Some confusion about the difference between these two window types is understandable—initially they look identical in form and function. The difference lies in the fact that, while both types of windows feature two sashes, only on the double-hung window are both sashes operable. Double-hung windows can be opened from the top, from the bottom, or at both ends. The main advantage of this lies in added ventilation and versatility, and also double-hung windows are substantially easier to clean and maintain.
