Double-hung windows are among the most popular choices for home window replacement and installation.  Homeowners love how easy they are to operate due to their modern design, and the fact that they still come in many traditional designs.  So let’s talk more in detail about the benefits of double-hung windows.


One of the first notable benefits of double-hung windows is the high level of ventilation you can gain from having them.  This provides the perfect cycling of air for your home.  Rain is obviously quite common in the summers here in Georgia.  It’s a huge benefit that you won’t have to sacrifice fresh air when you have double-hung windows.  This is because you can have the top sash open and rain won’t come in since it’s under the eave.

Another benefit is that the window design provides the opportunity for screens.  This allows for the added benefit of letting air in and keeping gnats and mosquitos out.

Cleaning and Maintenance

One of the most unique benefits of double-hung windows is the window’s ability to tilt inward.  This design makes it incredibly easy to clean the outside of the window from the inside of your home.  Gone are the days of climbing a ladder of any size to clear the exterior of your home’s windows.

Many Options to Choose From

Double-hung windows have been and will continue to be an incredibly popular choice of new windows.  This popularity has allowed for a wide range of styles, colors, sizes, and price points.  Of all things, they are most commonly known for their classic design and appeal.  This flexibility means that we have a double-hung window that will fit your home, upgrade goals, and budget without sacrificing the quality of the window and its installation.

Energy Efficiency

The last noted benefit is energy efficiency.  Savannah Windows & More provides Energy Star Low-E glass which limits the amount of UV heat coming into the home.  The dual-pane, double-strength insulated glass, thermally optimized frame and sash, and non-conductive composite reinforcements are just part of the advanced energy engineering that puts our double-hung window in a class by itself.  This all results in less HVAC use and lower utility bills.
