Double-hung windows are the most popular choice for replacement windows not only in Columbus, Ohio, but also nationwide. Why is that? Here are just a few reasons people may choose double-hung windows for their homes.
Both sashes, meaning the top and bottom sections, can be opened, which allows for good air flow into and out of the home. You can have both sashes open, or just one. They slide up and down easily, and are held in place by the window frame.
The sashes of double-hung windows can also tilt into the room, which makes cleaning them much easier — especially windows on the second floor and higher! Imagine being able to just go room to room to clean your windows, and not having to risk climbing a ladder or stressing just to hire a service to clean your otherwise hard to reach windows!
Most people in the market for replacement windows are concerned with energy efficiency, and double-hung windows can be extremely energy-efficient. Just how efficient depends on the materials they’re made of (vinyl or composite are the most efficient choices) and what kind of glass is used. Double-hung windows can even include triple panes. Our windows are some of the most energy-efficient in the industry, so you will definitely save money on your heating and cooling bills after getting your replacement windows.
Although they probably are not quite as necessary for replacement windows in Columbus, Ohio, as they may be in Florida, double-hung windows can also be impact windows. This means they can withstand high winds, like those that come along in a big storm or tornado. Some of our impact windows are even approved for use in Miami-Dade County, Florida, where it is important for windows to be able to withstand hurricane-strength winds!
