Two key benefits of double hung windows are improved air circulation and energy efficiency. These features improve the comfort of your home while helping reduce energy consumption and associated bills.
The flexible design of double hung windows allows air to circulate naturally. The sashes have three different positioning options based on their location and the needs of your home.
The top sash can be open while the bottom sash is closed, allowing warm air to flow out, or the bottom sash can be open while the top sash is closed.
As a third option, both sashes can be open at the same time for maximum airflow. Since heat rises, warm air exits through the top opening, while cool air circulates through the bottom opening. This feature makes double hung windows ideal for spaces where you need to maximise air circulation.
For greater ventilation, an awning window can increase air circulation for selected rooms.
