The Structural Advantages of Double-Hung Windows

Double-hung windows are one of the most popular window choices in the country due to their traditional appearance. Renewal by Andersen® combines functionality and form in this traditional design, resulting in superior energy efficiency. We achieve this through the use of Fibrex® frame materials and Low-E glass that keeps unwanted heat out.

Double-Hung Windows

Such a simple design has endured through the years and has retained its popularity despite the introduction of other window styles. Here’s a look at its several features and benefits.

It’s Energy-Efficient

Energy efficiency in a window is often attributed to the frame and glass. But we often overlook the seal it forms when closed. The frame should be rigid enough to provide a consistent seal and smooth operation. Traditional materials like wood are susceptible to temperature changes that promote thermal leaks. Renewal by Andersen overcomes this problem with our exclusive Fibrex material. It is more rigid than wood and that allows us build sashes and reduce gaps caused by temperature changes.

It Can Provide Efficient Ventilation

Effective room ventilation means having an outlet that pushes stale air out as well as an inlet that lets fresh air in. This makes double-hung windows prime windows installation candidates for single-window rooms. Their top sash can serve as the outlet while the bottom serves as the inlet.

It’s Easier to Clean and Maintain

Homeowners often find that double-hung windows are difficult to clean. To do so, you need to step outside to clean the exterior. This makes the task of cleaning upper-level windows an injury-prone endeavor. To solve this dilemma, Renewal by Andersen offers double hung windows that tilt from the inside. This allows you to clean from the safety of your interior.

Not all double hung windows are alike. For superior installation of double hung or casement windows, trust only the industry experts. Renewal by Andersen of Atlanta is the company for you. We proudly serve residents in Atlanta and other nearby areas. Give us a call at (888) 908-3332.
