What are Double Hung Windows?
Renewal by Andersen double hung windows have top and bottom window panes that create double openings on both levels. This allows for maximum ventilation to let fresh air in and stale air out. They also tilt inwards which allows for convenient, safe cleaning and maintenance from the inside of your home. Our double hung windows come in three timeless, elegant styles to match and enhance your home’s architectural aesthetic:
- Standard double hung windows which feature identically sized sashes
- Oriel-style double hung windows which feature a large upper sash
- Cottage-style double hung windows which offer a large lower sash
Why Choose Double Hung Windows?
ENERGY-EFFICIENCY – With an energy efficient weather tight seal, double hung windows help guard against water infiltration, drafts, and even help to reduce sound.
LOW MAINTENANCE – One-handed, inward tilting of both sashes provides easy and safe access for occasional window cleaning.
ELEGANCE – Mortise-and-tenon frame and sash construction provides a timelessly traditional, hand-crafted look.
HISTORICAL ACCURACY – They are a favourite selection for home renovation or restoration projects where historical accuracy is important.
SIMPLE OPERATION – Counterbalanced by spring-powered balancers, the sashes are incredibly easy to open and close, and provide excellent ventilation.
