What are Single-Hung Windows?A single-hung window is a type of single slider window that is raised up from the bottom to allow air inside. The top portion of the window remains in place and the bottom portion moves up and down, hanging in place. That is why it is called a single-hung window. Single-hung windows are what you'll typically find in modern homes that were constructed recently. They are very well-suited for traditional style homes. Originally, you would find them in Victorian and Georgian houses. Now, they mesh well with nearly any type of home. Single-hung windows are often compared to double-hung windows, which are their main counterpart. Double-hung windows are different in the sense that they can be opened from the bottom or the top. In other words, both the top sash and the bottom sash can move up or down, which means you can get much more ventilation. In addition, double-hung windows can also tilt inward, making them very easy to clean from the inside of your home. Single-hung windows do not tilt.

Single-Hung Window FAQ
The first step in cleaning your single-hung windows starts with purchasing window cleaner. Next, you’ll want to spray the inside of your window with the cleaner, then wipe in circular motions until the glass is clear. Cleaning the outside of your window is a little trickier, especially if the window can’t easily be reached from the outside. First, you’ll want to remove the screen of your window, then clean just like we mentioned before. This can be accomplished from the outside of your windows or by reaching from the inside of your home.
It is possible to install single-hung windows during the winter months, but we advise against it. That is because there may be ice, snow, or icicles that make the installation process dangerous. Furthermore, given how it’s necessary to remove your old window to install the new one, there will be a time period where the cold outside air will infiltrate your home. This can lead to a chilly residence and poor energy efficiency. So as it is possible to install these windows during the winter, only do it if it's absolutely necessary. Call Advanced Window Products to help with the installation.
