Double-hung and casement windows are two of the most popular window styles. Both types of windows have unique features and offer distinct benefits. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of San Antonio, window replacement expert, discusses our casement and double-hung windows:
Double-hung windows have an iconic appearance. They are a common fixture in traditional-style homes so they are the window type of choice for homeowners who want an accurate recreation of their home’s historic appearance. Another great feature of the double-hung window is their AC-friendly design. The vertical operation of the double-hung window allows it to securely hold an air-conditioning unit in place.
Like casement windows, double-hung windows provide good natural ventilation through the stack effect. Opening both the top and bottom sashes of a double-hung window at the same time allows allow air to circulate within your home. Hot air will escape through the top while cool air replaces it from the bottom. In addition, our double-hung windows are extremely easy to clean thanks to their tilt-in design.
Casement windows swing outwards, providing a large opening that admits a refreshing breeze inside your home. They are the perfect choice for homeowners who want to embrace the outdoors and fresh air. In addition, casement windows are extremely secure and airtight when closed. The sash of a casement window presses snugly against the frame when closed. Casement windows also provide excellent views because of their wide glass area.
