Double-hung windows consist of two vertical sashes that are both operational and slide up and down to open and close. They include all of the great benefits of single-hung windows but with two operational sashes both can tilt in for cleaning. Due to this, they are great for second-story or rooms high off the ground as homeowners can easily tilt the windows in to clean the outside of the window from inside the house.
These windows are great for rooms that need proper ventilation. They’re often found in bathrooms as less ventilation in this room creates humidity and moisture problems. Opening both sashes will cool down humid areas and keep moisture off the walls. If your home has a room that needs plenty of airflow, is on the second story, or you want to retain the home’s architectural style, double-hung windows make a great option!
