A single-hung window has a single movable sash that slides up from the bottom, while the top sash stays stationary. When open, the two sashes overlap, requiring no additional space to ventilate. This maximizes space around the window, making it popular in bedrooms and high-traffic areas, such as a patio. Because the top sash does not operate, single-hung windows are also ideal in spaces where the upper sash is out of reach.
Offering timeless style, these windows bring in natural light and fresh air. Given that the top sash is fixed, single-hung windows are very energy efficient and easy to operate making them a great window option for your Central Kansas home.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to Your Questions About Single-Hung Windows
Are Double-Hung Windows More Efficient Than Single-Hung Windows?
Single-hung windows are typically more energy-efficient than double-hung windows because one of the sashes is sealed and stationary.
How Do I Clean Single-Hung Windows from the Inside?
On select product lines, the bottom sash of single-hung windows tilts in, making it easy to clean both the interior and exterior surfaces from inside the home. Since the top sash is stationary, the exterior surface of the upper half will need to be cleaned from outside the home.
What's the Difference Between a Single-Hung Window and a Double-Hung Windows?
The difference between single-hung and double-hung windows is the number of sashes that move. A single-hung window has one fixed, or non-operable, sash and one operable, or moveable, sash. A double-hung window has two operable, or moveable, sashes.
