What is a double-hung window?

Double-hung windows have two operable sashes (that’s just a fancy term for the actual window panel) that can slide vertically within the frame. This allows for both the upper or lower sashes to be opened to help increase ventilation.

Some double-hung windows have the option of being tilted inward for easier cleaning (Renewal by Andersen double hung windows have this feature for your convenience).

What is the main drawback to the use of a double hung window?

One potential drawback of double-hung windows is that they may obstruct your view and hinder the entrance of natural light into your home due to the horizontal sash rails that run across the middle of the window.

Why are double-hung windows better?

There’s several reasons double-hung windows are one of the most popular window choices amongst homeowners.

1. Timeless aesthetic – They complement a range of architectural styles (and can boost curb appeal if you’re looking to sell).
2. Air quality – Due to each sash being able to open, they provide increased ventilation which can improve air quality.
3. Functionality – Each sash tilts inward for easy cleaning.

What is a double hung window vs casement?

Double-hung windows feature two operable sashes that slide vertically in the window frame.

Casement windows feature a hinge on one side and a crank that allows the window to swing open outward.

The major differences are in ventilation and view, you get more of both with casement windows. The horizontal rail on double hung windows obstructs view. Moreover, while each sash is operable on double hung windows, casement windows open entirely letting more air through.
