Are the windows in your bedroom in a state of disrepair? Did you feel cool air getting in around the edges during the winter? Is there persistent fog on the windows that simply won’t go away? You may need replacement windows for your Portland, OR home. But what types of windows will work best for your bedroom? There are lots of options to choose from. Here’s a look at some options to consider before making a buying decision.
Double Hung Windows
Double hung windows are built with two sashes that can both be opened and closed. Stacked vertically, the two sashes are both operable. This will enable you to enjoy significant airflow. Since you’ll want to keep your Gladstone windows clean and in good repair, you will be pleased to know that double hung windows tilt inward. This makes it easier to clean them — and you’ll be able to do so from inside your home rather than from outside your home on a ladder.
Single Hung Windows
Single hung windows are similar to double hung windows. The main difference is that only one of the two sashes is operable while the other is inoperable. You can open the single operable sash to get some fresh air into your bedroom. So while a single hung window won’t allow for as much airflow as will a double hung window, that doesn’t mean that a single hung window isn’t a great idea. It really all depends on what you want for your bedroom – and how much you want to spend. You will typically pay more to buy a double hung window than a single hung window.
Sliding windows are great if you want to let in a lot of sunshine as well as allow for great air circulation. A slider window has two sashes positioned side by side. You can think of sliding windows like double hung windows flipped on their side. You can get slider windows with one sash that slides open and closed or one with both sashes that slide open and closed. Do you like to get a lot of fresh air first thing in the morning? Sliding windows will help with that. You can ask staff members at a replacement window showroom to let you see their slider windows.
