Double Hung Windows

Are you a homeowner who realizes it is time to replace your windows but not sure which type to go with? A double hung window is a fantastic option that will allow you beautiful views of the outdoors while also increasing the energy efficiency of your home. Once you have made the decision it is time to replace your windows call 1-877-WINDOWS and a consultant will come to your home to explain all of the different window styles. Our most popular window is the double hung option which has two sashes in a single frame, with both sashes able to slide up or down independently of one another. Both sashes are also able to tilt in for easy cleaning. 

Energy Windows, Doors & More offers many different configuration options to choose from to maximize your view from the inside out with a double hung window. For instance, you can have an Oriel designed window which would have the top sash larger than the bottom sash so that your view is not blocked by the meeting rails. Another common design on first floor windows especially in formal living areas is the cottage style window which has the top sash smaller than the bottom sash. That way, when you are sitting in this area you have a larger view to the outside and again not blocked by the meeting rails of the window. 

Advantages of the Double-Hung Window:

  • Energy, Windows, Doors and More’s double hung window comes standard with triple weather seals, interlocks where both sashes meet, as well as a composite rail on the bottom of the top sash and top of the bottom sash. This not only ensures a .02 air infiltration rating (among the highest in the industry) but also helps maintain the structural integrity of the window for years to come.
  • Operating a double hung window is very easy with our constant force balance system and will allow the homeowner to clean easily from the inside of their home not even having to clean the sashes from the exterior. 
  • Both sashes on a double-hung window can slide up or down independently to provide maximum ventilation. Also, if you wish to have the bottom sash open on the window but are worried for security reasons our safety latches will only allow the bottom sash to open slightly adding an extra layer of security.
  • Our low profile and sleek design will ensure maximum glass space. Many double-hung windows on the market are boxy with a lot of vinyl blocking your view. Our premium double hung windows has a slimline lock design as well as fully welded sashes and frames to give you the traditional wood window look from the exterior of the home without the maintenance.

Preparing your home for the Winter Season

Winter 2021 is predicted to be among one of the coldest winters in a long time. Preparing your home for this harsh winter is of the utmost importance. One of the worst ways to lose money and heat this winter is by not replacing your old drafty windows with new energy efficient windows. 
Old glass windows can lose up to 10 times more heat than an insulated window which will then increase your energy consumption due to your heating system over compensating. The way to avoid this issue is to shop for replacement windows that are built for your specific climate. In the northeast we have a wide range of temperatures so you want to shop for replacement windows that will work for your home throughout all of the seasons. 

Start by inspecting…

Doing a walk through your home and taking note which windows have the biggest leaks, rots, broken glass, and broken seals will help you determine which windows are of the utmost importance of replacing. By consulting with a professional company like Energy Windows, Doors & More it will help you determine what makes the most sense for your home. If replacing in stages makes more sense we can explore that option with you. Having various payment options allows our homeowners the flexibility of making a decision of whether they would like to break their project up into stages or replace all of the windows that need replacing in the home at one time. 

Explore different Glass options

At Energy Windows, Doors and More we only offer energy star rated products. We offer glass options from double strength glass all the way to triple pane glass. When shopping for windows you will want to make sure the glass has a layer of Argon Gas or Krypton gas in between both panes to maximize energy efficiency. The goal is to replace your old windows with higher performing windows  which is why it makes sense to explore all of your different glass options. Nowadays, we find most homeowners want to explore the triple pane glass option because why not be as energy efficient as possible and save the most amount of money this winter?

Hopefully these helpful hints will help you when deciding whether your home needs replacement windows to prepare for this upcoming winter! There are plenty of more details to go through when making this decision so call 1-877-WINDOWS so that we can help guide you along the way. Don’t be left out in the cold this winter and save money on those energy bills for years to come!
