Double Hung windows are unique in their own sense. Apart from being easy to clean and energy efficient, these windows give the home that traditional look. Of all the window types, the double-hung variety appears to be the most noticeable. Some of its features include two sashes that slide along separate grooves in the vertical direction. You will be impressed by the ability of this window to expose over half of its area for ventilation into the room. For the sashes to stay in any particular position, each comes with compression weather stripping, springs or balances.
Preventing air infiltration, acting as a counterbalance and providing tension are the uses of compression weather stripping. For window energy efficiency and water control, the window has a sloped sill and several layers of weather stripping. What does this mean? You no longer have to climb ladders and use squeegees on the window. Maintenance and cleaning of the window is so easy with the effective bottom and top sashes’ operation. With such operation, the rooms will have better circulation of air. Double Hung windows have the highest level of effectiveness and energy efficiency.
Double Hung Window Installation
This traditional design will allow you to maintain the original look of your home. Double Hung window opens by gently sliding the bottom half of the vinyl window up or sliding the top of the window half down. Because only half of the vinyl window area can be open at one time, they will provide much less ventilation than the vinyl casement style windows. But advantage of Double Hung vinyl windows is they can be used to create air stream movement in the house by slightly opening the top portion of the windows on one side of the house and slightly opening the lower portion of the vinyl double hung windows on the coolest side of the house. Air will naturally rise out of the higher opening, pulling cooler air in the lower opening. The spiral sash balance system holds each sash securely in any position and lets you clean your window without having to go outside. If ease of cleaning and maintenance is a concern, our vinyl Double Hung windows allows the sash to tilt back into the structure and lock in place for easy cleaning. A full size screen allows ventilation from the top and bottom.Our goal is to improve the appearance, efficiency, comfort, and ultimate value, of any home that has our products installed with services in the Greater Toronto area includes Toronto, Stouffville, Mississauga, Richmond Hill, Brampton, Pickering, Oakville, Ajax, Markham, Thornhill, Woodbridge, Newmarket and Aurora.
