Double hung windows are distinguished by the existence of two movable sashes in a single window frame. Also known as “sash windows,” this style was first popular in England, and could be commonly found in Georgian and Victorian houses. Today, the oldest surviving sash windows from the 1670s can also be found in London, England.
Double hung windows are also an excellent choice for patios, or for windows that might be placed next to doors. Why? By virtue of the fact that the double hung windows’ sashes remain flush with the window frame, and therefore with the wall, so there will be no awkward clashes or conflicting uses of space between a swinging window pane and an opening door.
In addition to their traditional beauty, double hung windows are a practical choice for many reasons. One of their significant advantages is that they allow for quite efficient cooling of your house or apartment during warmer weather. Sliding both the sashes together to create two equal openings at the top and the bottom of the window enables warmer air to escape through the top opening, while cooler air gets drawn into your home through the lower opening.
