What Is a Double-Hung Window?

A double-hung window has two stacked, movable sashes (the part of the window that holds the pane). This allows the window to slide down from the top and up from the bottom, meaning both sashes can open at the same time. Most models have the capability for both the top and bottom sashes to tilt in and out, offering versatility and easy cleaning.

Double-Hung vs. Single-Hung Windows

Single-hung windows are the norm for most homes, apartments, and office buildings. These windows get their name because of their vertically moving bottom sash and stationary upper sash. In double-hung windows, both sashes can open and tilt, providing easier access to both panels.

There are plenty of advantages to having double-hung windows:

  • Convenience: Because both sashes move and tilt in, their panels are easier to access, making window cleaning more convenient than in their single-hung counterparts.
  • Circulation: Better access to both panels means better overall circulation from your windows to the rest of your home.
  • Security: Double-hung windows have two locks, adding more security than single-hung windows.
  • Variety: With more colors, styles, and materials to choose from than single-hung windows, double-hung windows offer more architectural possibilities.

Consider Installing Twin Double-Hung Windows

When replacing a larger window with double-hung windows, or when installing a new window that you want to be significantly larger than a single double-hung window, you may want to consider twin double-hung windows.

Twin windows are typically two double-hung windows side-by-side in a single opening, divided by a portion of frame or flush against one another’s structures, depending on the design.

Benefits of Twin Double-Hung Windows

By choosing twin double-hung windows, you’ll enjoy the versatility of double-hung windows multiplied, giving you exceptional control over airflow through the room. Lower the upper sash on one side while raising the lower sash on the other to encourage significant air cycles through your home.

You’ll also find it’s much easier to clean this much glass with two tiltable sashes on each window. Cleaning the upper sash of twin single-hung windows can be a significant problem, especially for upper-story windows, but you’ll never face such problems with twin double-hung windows.

Simply tilt each of the four sashes in turn and clean them all from the comfort of your home — no standing in the bushes, climbing a ladder, or awkwardly reaching through the window to clean the upper sash’s exterior.
