When it’s time for a window replacement, choosing the right style is crucial. The design and style of your new windows can improve your home’s overall appeal, ventilation, and functionality. Moreover, double-hung windows are something you should definitely consider for your house.
Read on to find out reasons you should choose this window style.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Double-hung windows can help with your home’s energy efficiency. Many modern double-hung windows can significantly reduce your utility costs by blocking heat while still allowing natural light to enter. Old, inefficient windows are more likely to allow drafts into your home, increasing your energy costs.
Today’s double-hung windows are easier to clean and maintain. You can clean the outside of these windows without going outside because both sashes tilt in. This feature eliminates the need to climb up a ladder. Keep in mind that well-maintained windows tend to last longer.
Another reason to choose this style for your window replacement is it will increase your home’s ventilation. You can open your new double-hung windows to improve airflow in your living spaces. Adding screens to the windows will allow more fresh air into your home without worrying about bugs or debris entering.
You can place double-hung windows almost anywhere in the house. They come in various sizes, colors, materials, and finishes. No matter the color scheme and style of your home, there is a double-hung window for you.
