When it’s time for an upgrade, homeowners often consider switching to a different window style – for example, a picture window for unobstructed views or a bay and bow window for additional space. The humble double-hung, however, remains a staple for many American homes because of its range of benefits.
If you’re considering double-hung replacement windows for your upgrade, here are three reasons you might just be making the best decision for your home.
- Superior ventilation – Double-hung windows provide ventilation that you can control. Since their upper and lower sashes are both operable, you can simply open them together to draw in fresh air from the bottom and to let out stale indoor air from the top. Doing so doesn’t only improve your indoor air quality; it also cools your home naturally. If you need just a bit of air, on the other hand, you have the option to open just one sash.
- Impressive energy efficiency – Renewal by Andersen® of San Francisco can upgrade your regular windows into energy-efficient double-pane replacement windows with our Fibrex® frame and High Performance™ Low-E4® glass. These two proprietary materials help us provide products that are more energy-efficient than traditional double-panes in summer and winter.
- Minimal maintenance requirements – Installing double-hung windows makes window maintenance easier. By simply tilting their sashes in, you can clean your windows without having to wipe them from the outside. Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco makes this process even easier, thanks to our low-maintenance frames and glass packages that feature an exterior coating which reduces water spots by 99%.
