Double-hung windows are the nation’s most popular choice for replacement windows, and the same is true in Nashville, Tenn. Why is that? Here are some reasons homeowners may choose double-hung windows for their residences.
Both the top and bottom sections, or sashes, can be opened, which makes for great air flow into and out of your home. You can open both sashes, or just one of them. The sashes, which are held in place by the window frame, are easy to move.
Another great feature is that the sashes of double-hung windows tilt inside, which makes them much easier to clean — especially the windows higher than the ground floor! Imagine not having to climb a ladder or crawl around on the roof just to clean your windows!
Most people who want to buy replacement windows are concerned with energy efficiency, and double-hung windows can be very energy-efficient. A window’s efficiency depends on what materials they’re made of (the most efficient are vinyl and composite) and the type of glass used. Double-hung windows can also have triple panes in them. Our windows are some of the industry’s most energy-efficient, so you will easily save on heating and cooling bills after having replacement windows installed.
Although they may not be as necessary for replacement windows in Nashville, Tenn., as they are in parts of Florida or Texas, double-hung windows may be impact windows. This means they can withstand big winds, like those from a huge storm or tornado. Some of our impact windows are approved by Miami-Dade County, Florida, a place where building codes for both new and replacement windows need to be able to withstand winds from hurricanes!
