Double hung windows remain the classic choice among Vancouver homeowners–and with good reason! They already offer many benefits on their own, but with the right set of features, double hung windows can further improve your quality of life. Renewal by Andersen® of British Columbia, the premier window contractor in the area, shares why it pays to choose this particular window style for your home.
- They are energy-efficient. The fact is that double hung windows are a champion when it comes to improving your home’s ventilation. You can open their two operable sashes at the same time to let out warm, stale air from the top sash, and let in cooler, fresher air via the bottom sash. This allows you to cool your home without relying too much on your air conditioning. But just how energy-efficient your double hung windows are will also depend on the framing material and glass they use.
The double hung windows offered by the premier window company, Renewal by Andersen® of British Columbia use Fibrex® . This advanced composite material can provide the strength and insulating value of wood, plus the low-maintenance performance of vinyl. This allows for windows with a more durable, tighter seal that can prevent considerable energy loss. When paired with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, which reduces unwanted solar heat gain, you get some of the most energy-saving windows available in today’s market.
- Double hung windows are versatile. What makes this window style timeless is its neat and simple design. Double hung windows never look out of place whatever room they’re installed. In fact, you can also customize them so they’re able to work well with any architectural style. The double hung windows offered by Renewal by Andersen® of British Columbia, for example, are available in a wide selection of color combinations, hardware finishes, and grille patterns, making it easy for you to match them with your home’s overall look.
- They are low-maintenance. Some double hung windows come with tilt-in sashes that make cleaning both sides of the unit easier. Not only that–they may even come with removable sashes, which not only makes window cleanup worry-free, but also safer. That’s because you won’t have to reach over or go outside to clean them.
