Single Hung Replacement Windows
Single hung windows can be raised from the bottom to allow airflow, while the top of the window remains stationary and helps increase energy efficiency. On double hung windows, both sashes in the window frame are operable or move up and down. In San Antonio, single-hung windows are often the standard window option used in newer home construction, apartment buildings and office spaces.
Benefits of Single Hung Windows
Because single hung windows only open in one direction, there are fewer points of failure on the window’s locking system. With only one lock, you may also be less likely to forget to lock your windows once you shut them for the day or night.
Single hung windows are cheaper than double hung windows by up to 20%. While this may not seem like a huge difference in price when replacing one or two windows, homeowners in need of a 10 or more windows will find that the cost difference adds up.
Single hung windows are energy efficient. With only one movable sash, there is less opportunity for air to come in. Installing replacement single hung windows will increase the energy efficiency of your home, as newer windows feature much improved technology, such as more energy efficient glass, frame, insulation, etc. The less air that can infiltrate through your windows, the less you will spend on heating and cooling costs.
Because single hung windows don’t open outward, they are perfect for tight spaces and smaller rooms. They will allow for extra sunlight and cross breezes without losing any square footage in a room. Visually, the window design hides the locks for a streamlined exterior.
