Double Hung Windows Westchester NY – Double-hung windows have certain advantages over single-hung windows, which have a stationary top sash.
Double-hung windows are an easy type of window to keep clean because both sashes tilt in for easy access to the inner and outer surfaces of the glass. Lowering a top sash allows heat to escape from a room more quickly.
Also, lowering the top sash may still be an option even during rainfall if a window is located directly below a projecting eave.
What are Double Hung Windows?
A double-hung window has two operable sashes that move up and down. The sashes slide in tracks built into the frame and are held in position by either counterweights, springs, or friction.
The sashes are locked shut with a latch located where they meet in the middle.
Double-hung windows are associated with a more traditional aesthetic and often have simulated divided lights or window grids installed. A double-hung window with a narrow top sash than the bottom sash is sometimes called a cottage window.
