Advantages of Vinyl Replacement Double Hung Windows

There are several advantages to using double-hung vinyl window replacement that most homeowners will appreciate. There are lower energy costs during winter and summer as the vinyl will remain tighter than most materials no matter the weather. These windows are also almost maintenance-free. It is nearly impossible to scratch or stain vinyl windows, and painting will never be an issue. When these windows need to be cleaned, simple soap and water can do the trick. Another advantage is the cost. Although vinyl windows are the most affordable option for window material, they are still solid and durable. The homeowner won't have to worry about rust or rot like some other materials. Vinyl windows are a great combination of being made of the least expensive material that windows are made from, yet they remain durable. Another great thing about replacement vinyl windows is they come in a variety of options. These windows come in a large assortment of colors, they come in a wide variety of sizes, and you can find the style to fit the architecture of your home.

Every Advanced window style offers its special advantages for homeowners. Our double-hung vinyl windows offer bigger functional and style advantages than almost any standard type in modern replacement windows. Some additional advantages of Advanced double-hung windows include:

  • Improved Ventilation: The unique option of opening both sashes at once helps the circulation of cool air coming in through the lower opening and warm air going out through the top opening.
  • Energy Efficient: Far beyond just fitting snugly into the wall opening to block drafts, Advanced energy-efficient vinyl frames and glass packages produce one of the world’s most energy-efficient windows.
  • Convenient Cleaning: You don’t need to go outside and climb a ladder to clean the window. Whether you’re on the first floor or the third, you can simply slide down the upper sash for cleaning and tilt in the lower sash to clean it.

How Do Double Hung Windows Work?

Single-hung windows have a stationary upper sash, so only the bottom sash can slide up and down. Double-hung windows are easier to clean because both the upper and lower sashes can be moved up and down, so you can clean the outside of the window while you’re indoors.

Glass Energy-Efficiency Options

Research shows that up to 70% of a home’s heating and cooling loss is through windows and doors, a large percentage of which is lost directly through the glass. Advanced Window Products offers among the best energy-efficient replacement windows on the market today.

Low-E windows are coated with invisible material that causes exceptionally low emissivity in ultra-modern energy-efficient glass options. Emissivity is the radiating of heat.

  • I89 Low-E Glass reduces solar heat gain to help keep rooms significantly cooler than regular window glass can, and it blocks up to 71% of UV rays.

Single Hung vs Double Hung Windows

A single hung window has one sash that can be moved up and down. A double-hung window has two sashes that can be moved up and down. The advantages to that configuration are at least two-fold:

  • Because both sashes are able to move up and down, you can add to the amount of ventilation in your home. Some homeowners will open the top sash to ventilate warm air and the lower sash to circulate the air. This allows a greater amount of comfort for longer periods of the year.
  • Another advantage that many homeowners appreciate is that it is easier to clean a double-hung replacement window safely while keeping your feet firmly planted inside your home by using window tilting technology.
