Rialto High Efficiency Windows
If you’re doing any research into Fontana high efficiency windows, you’ve probably seen information on double-hung and single-hung windows. What are the differences between these two, and which ones will be the best when the time comes to have high efficiency windows in Fontana CA installed in your home? The experts with Silver Lining Restoration will always be here to answer any questions you have – and we’ll also have the tools and experience needed to install your windows correctly the first time. Here’s a little information that will help make your choice between single-hung and double-hung windows easier.
What They Are
Single-hung Fontana high efficiency windows have been around for a long time. They come with the top sash in a fixed location, allowing you to only move up the bottom sash. Double-hung high efficiency windows in Fontana CA, on the other hand, are made so you can move both the bottom and top sashes, and have them open at the same time. Even though they look alike, there are some other major differences.
Cost and Maintenance
It will cost you more to purchase double-hung windows. They’ve actually only gained popularity in recent years, so you probably won’t find them in most older homes. Since they cost more to purchase, they’ll also cost more to install. But if you have an issue with your home feeling stuffy, double-hung high efficiency windows in Fontana CA will be a good choice, since they provide more ventilation than single-hung windows.
Single-hung windows, on the other hand, cost less but typically require more maintenance and cleaning. You’ll have to clean the interior and then go outside to clean the exterior. Double-hung windows tilt. You can spray both the interior and exterior as a result.
Single-hung windows tend to be more energy efficient, since they have fewer moving parts. However, if you make sure you turn to a quality installer like Silver Lining Restoration, your double-hung windows can be just as efficient. We’ll make sure they’re sealed exactly right to help ensure that efficiency.
