A relative newcomer to the popular residential window market, Double Hung windows have quickly become a necessity to many modern homeowners. Their convenient and flexible design offers them clear advantages over their standard sliding windows cousins.
Their name simply indicates that the windows can be manipulated using both the top and the bottom frames. Unlike single-hung windows, doubles can shift both the top and bottom frame. This is clearly a massive convenience for anyone intending to clean their windows, but that is only the first of several advantages.
Ventilation can be greatly improved with these windows. As heat rises, it can pool at the ceiling level of a room. With double hung windows in your Gold Coast home, you area able to open the top of the top pane and the bottom of the bottom pane – releasing the hottest air in the room while drawing in cooler air at the bottom.
The ability to open only the top pane has safety implications, as well. There are fewer concerns about young children or pets climbing through windows when the access point is on the top pane, so windows can be used more frequently, while saving on your energy bill by turning off the air conditioning.
The window has been utilised elsewhere, including the service industry: double-hung windows have been brought to bear as servery windows, allowing access to the kitchen, while keeping it separated from the atmosphere of the dining area.
As an extension of the system, Central Glass also offers sashless double hung windows. These impressive variants are devoid of the line in the middle of the window that often lies at eye level, giving you all the flexibility and benefits of a double hung window, without any obstruction to your view.
The logic behind the double-pane window is flexibility, and in the variable sub-tropical climate of Gold Coast, this can be absolutely paramount to keeping your home at a reasonable temperature.
