What are Double Hung Windows?
Double hung windows have top and bottom window panes that open up and down—double openings—that let fresh air in and stale air out. They tilt in for easy cleaning from inside your home.
Renewal by Andersen double hung windows come in three timeless, elegant styles to match and enhance your home’s architectural beauty:
- Standard double hung windows feature identically sized sashes
- Cottage-style double hung windows offer a large lower sash
- Oriel-style double hung windows feature a large upper sash
Why Choose Double Hung Windows?
COMFORT – With an energy efficient weather tight seal, double hung windows help guard against drafts and water infiltration, and can help reduce sound.
LOW MAINTENANCE – One-handed, inward tilting of both sashes provides safe and easy cleaning.
ELEGANCE – Mortise-and-tenon frame and sash construction provides a traditional, hand-crafted look.
HISTORICAL ACCURACY – A popular window choice for restoration and renovation projects where historical accuracy is important.
SIMPLE OPERATION – Counterbalanced by spring-powered balancers, the sashes are incredibly easy to open and close, and provide excellent ventilation.
