Single Hung Windows Vs. Double Hung Windows


You're gearing up to replace your old windows—after all, nobody likes it when their house is drafty—but you have no idea where to start. Up until now you haven't really put much thought into different styles of windows. You just know what you loved the ones your home came with, but that they need to go now so you can truly enjoy your home no matter what the weather is like.

 

Two of the terms you'll run into a lot when shopping for your window replacements are “single hung” and “double hung” windows.

 

So what exactly is the difference between single hung and double hung windows? Keep reading to find out:

 

Single Hung – Single hung windows consist of two small window panes or “sashes”. One sash is fixed in place while the other is placed in a frame that slides down over the other window pane. They come in many shapes and sizes and give you both a great view and good airflow through your home. Single hung windows offer a better seal against the weather and will help you survive extreme weather patterns.

 

Of course, there's also the matter of cost. A single hung window is cheaper than a double hung window, and since it's less likely to let the outside weather in, it can also save you quite a bit on your energy bills.

 

Double Hung – Double hung windows also have two sashes, but both of the sashes are designed to move. The top sash moves down and the bottom sash moves up, allowing for maximum airflow in your home. NorthShield offers the highest quality Energy Star Certified double hung windows.

This the second time I used Northshield. They replaced five windows and two doors. Work was done efficiently and accurately. Would recommend it to all my friends and family.

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.
