Article Summary: 

This article discusses the differences between single hung and double hung windows to help homeowners decide which type of window is best suited for their needs. Single hung windows have only the bottom sash that can move, while double hung windows have two sashes that can be moved up and down or tilted inwards or outwards. The article compares the two types of windows based on ease of cleaning, maintenance and repair, control of airflow and ventilation, security for children and pets, and initial cost. Double hung windows are generally better in most aspects, except for the initial cost, which is lower for single hung windows. The article also highlights the benefits of choosing high-quality replacement windows from Clera Windows + Doors, which include a wide selection of stylish window styles and designs, energy-efficient windows, a comprehensive warranty, and a professional window installation process.
