What Are Single Hung Windows?
There is not much difference between a single hung window and a double hung except that with the latter, only the bottom sash slides up and down to regulate air circulation while its top sash stays in place. Although not as popular as the double hung windows, single hungs are still used by a number of homeowners to replace their existing units and for new construction.
One big advantage of single hung windows is their price tag. They are generally more affordable than double hungs given that only their bottom sash requires the mechanism to operate, thus keeping the cost of making them low.
