What Is A Double Hung Window?
One of the most popular types of replacement vinyl windows in Houston TX today are the double hung windows. Chances are that you have already seen them in many homes given that they are practically all over the place. Double hungs are so called because in the past they were made with a double set of sashes, which were hung within the window frame through counter weights. These counter weights also made it possible for the sashes to be lifted up and down effortlessly to allow air circulation. Plus, they kept the sashes in place while being raised.
Today, manufacturers rarely use the counter weights anymore, if at all. They now utilize either spring balances or steel coils to balance the weight of the sash when it is lifted up or down.
Designed With You And Your Home In Mind
We at Zen Windows Houston take pride in our double hung windows which come with these innovative qualities:
- Durable and excellent lift action: Each Zen Windows Houston double hung window comes with either Endura-Force™ or Certa-Force™ balances that allow for easy and effortless lifting or lowering of their sashes.
- Easy and convenient cleaning: Our double hungs have the ability to tilt in making it easy to clean the units even from inside your home. All it takes is a mere push of a button that is found at either side of the sashes.
- Minimal air infiltration: They feature specially designed air barriers and weather stripping to prevent significant energy loss in your home.
- Innovative sill designs: With the strong bond between the window’s sill and jamb, our double hung windows offer maximum protection even against the toughest outdoor climate.
- Energy efficient glass packages: We offer numerous glass package options to meet your energy efficiency requirements.
- Added convenience and functionality: All our double hung windows also include vent stops to enable the sash to be raised just halfway for ventilation. With vent stops, the sash stays in place even when there’s a strong gust of wind coming from the outdoors.
