SINGLE HUNG WINDOWS
Single hung windows provide a classic look for any home. It can be raised from the bottom to allow airflow, while the top of the window remains stationary. The most beneficial reason to buy single hung windows is the cost and added energy efficiency. Because single hung windows have a fixed top sash, it is often more energy efficient than a double hung window.
In the single hung window, the bottom sash moves up to open and allow in air flow. The top sash is fixed. Since it opens and closes without protuding, single-hung windows are an excellent choice for rooms facing walkways, porches or patios.

Single Hung Windows
On single hung windows, the top sash is fixed in place and does not move or tilt in, but the bottom is operable.

On double-hung windows both sashes in the window frame are operable, meaning they move up and down. The sashes on a double hung window also tilt in for easy cleaning.
