Double Hung vs Single Hung

Are Double Hung Vinyl Windows Better Than Single Hungs?
When it comes to choosing between a double hung and single hung window, the choice really is just a matter of individual preference. This is especially true with Zen’s windows as we try to provide nearly every combination of ease, affordability, comfort, and energy efficiency possible to ensure that you enjoy the benefits of your replacement windows regardless of their style.
- Two sashes that lift: One common reason why homeowners opt for a double hung window is because both its sashes are operational. This allows proper regulation of airflow as well as easy cleaning. In single hung windows, only the bottom sash can be raised or lowered. Another advantage of Zen Windows’ double hungs is that they can be tilted in making it even easier and more convenient to clean the units.
- Affordability: Given that only one sash in single hung windows is operating, this keeps the cost of the windows down. This makes them more affordable than double hung windows. Their affordability is the main reason why many home builders choose them over the latter.
- Air Infiltration: Whether you choose a double hung or single hung window, at Zen Windows Little Rock, you are sure to get the maximum energy performance of your units. Since air infiltration is a major concern of every homeowner, our single hung and double hung vinyl windows are designed with both air and water barriers and at least two strips of weather stripping around their sashes. With Zen Windows you are guaranteed to get the best air infiltration ratings in the business.
- Energy Efficiency: Ideally, the most energy efficient windows are those with foam insulation in the sash and frame and have a triple-pane glass unit. This means that in addition to the frame and sash construction, the type of glass selected should be equally considered. To meet the right amount of energy efficiency in your home, you can choose from among our 20 different glass packages.
