Arvada, Colorado's Best Window Replacement Company. Single Hung Windows
Single Hung Windows by Arvada Window Replacement
A great alternative, and one of the most traditional style of Windows is called Single Hung Windows. A Single Hung Window is defined by the top sash being fixed, and the bottom sash being able to be moved up and down at will. Single Hung Windows are by far the most popular and widely used Windows in the Arvada area because of the ease of use, and the inexpensive cost. As opposed to the Double Hung Window that opens on the top and bottom, the fixed top allows a greater energy efficiency because the top sash is not allowed to be moved, therefore the seal is permanently in place.
Arvada Window Replacement recommends Single Hung Windows because, like stated above, they are more cost effective than virtually any other window. Depending on how many windows you need to be replaced within your home or office, Single Hung Windows may be the cheapest way to go, if you are looking at getting the most bang for your buck. Because of the great new technology and insulation that every Single Hung Window now offers, you not only will save a ton of money on Your Arvada Home Window Installation, but you will experience up to a 40% monthly savings on your energy bill. What would a 40% savings on your bill do for you?
Most window manufacturers use high quality weather stripping (closed cell foam is most common) as the insulation that protects any elements from making it inside your windows and into your home. This advanced window insulation makes it so that you don’t have to worry about drafts, leaks, or losing the heating or cooling outside of your house.
Why would you go with Single Hung Windows over Double Hung or another type of Window? The obvious answer is the cost, and you will save hundreds if not thousands on installing Single Hung Windows in your home. The other answer is that Single Hung Windows are less maintenance than any other window besides a fixed window that does not move. Also, you can add an air conditioner on Single Hung Windows at the bottom of the window with the sash fully open. This is very helpful if you live in an Apartment in the city of Arvada, Colorado as the summers can get very hot.
The disadvantages of Single Hung Windows is that the ventilation is much more limited than a Double Hung or traditional Casement Window. If you are looking for more air to come in to your home or office, we recommend not going with Single Hung Windows because the ability to ventilate is more limited.
Single Hung Windows have almost the same amount of value in terms of curb appeal that Double Hung Windows have, so if your pocket book is looking a little light, this might be the window for you.
