What Are Hung Windows?
Hung windows, a popular choice among homeowners and architects, are characterized by their unique sash opening mechanism. At Everest Windows & Doors Inc., we specialize in two main types: single-hung and double-hung windows. In single-hung windows, the bottom sash moves vertically while the top sash remains stationary. Double-hung windows, on the other hand, offer more versatility, with both the top and bottom sashes being operable. This design not only facilitates easy cleaning but also provides excellent air circulation.
Fun fact: Double-hung windows have been a feature in American architecture since the 18th century, showcasing their timeless appeal. In terms of energy efficiency, modern hung windows have evolved significantly. With advanced technologies, they now offer impressive energy-saving capabilities – a feature increasingly demanded in today’s environmentally conscious market. At Everest, our hung windows are designed to combine historical charm with modern efficiency, making them a smart choice for both renovation and new construction projects. The are all ENERGYSTAR certified windows.
