Energy costs tend to rise for homeowners during summer and winter due to extra stress on the HVAC system. Insulated windows and doors can help ease the burden on your HVAC system by ensuring indoor air doesn’t escape the home, leaidng to lower energy bills..
Ventilation and View
If ventilation is a top priority, the double-hung window is your best bet. Double-hung windows can be opened from both the top and bottom simultaneously, providing excellent ventilation in your home. Even in rooms with only one double-hung window, you can enjoy an excellent breeze thanks to this functionality.
Both single- and double-hung windows can provide good energy efficiency if you choose high-quality products that are installed properly by an experienced professional. Make sure to ask your contractor which type of glass would be best suited to your local climate to maximize energy efficiency.
Durability and Style
Double- and single-hung windows both come in a wide range of sizes and materials. You can choose from vinyl, wood frames, aluminum and fiberglass. That said, most manufacturers offer more design, material and upgrade options for double-hung windows than single-hung windows, so if you’re after a wider pool of options, consider double-hung windows.
