Single Hung Windows
Single hung windows are composed of two sashes. A fixed upper sash and a sliding lower sash. The lower sash is mounted into a set of slides at either side and freely moves up and down to open or close the lower half of the window.
The Difference Between Single Hung and Double Hung
Both single hung and are composed of two different sashes. The only real difference between these two windows is that when using double hung windows both of the sashes move. In single hung windows,only one of the sashes moves. That means that cleaning these windows is a bit more difficult, and you don’t have as many options when opening and closing the windows. Usually, only the bottom section of the window opens up, which means that you really need two different windows to ventilate a room properly, something that you can do by opening just part of the top and bottom of a double hung window.
So do you do with single or double? That is something our experts can help you with. Check out our windows at Columbus Windows and Siding!
