Double-hung windows offer the homeowner the ability to open each sash, rather than just the bottom sash. This allows for better air flow and ventilation. Possibly among the greatest benefits that double hung windows bring is great ventilation capabilities and the ability to control airflow. For maximum ventilation, you simply open both top and bottom sashes – the bottom sash will let in cool, fresh air, while the top sash will allow warm indoor air to be expelled through it. This can help enhance the quality of your indoor air and make your home cooler naturally. If you need just a little ventilation, then open just one sash.
Double hung windows used to be constructed using a weight and sash cord however these days Ausdens construct all their double hung windows using spiral balances. Spiral balances are easier to access then the old weight and cord system plus you will never have to worry about your weight falling off into the cavity never to be found again. If you have existing double hung windows with the old weight and cord system and want to use the spiral balance system instead Ausdens can alter your existing windows to accommodate this meaning you don’t have to purchase a whole new window to get the benefits of the balance system.
So whether it be a new double hung window system, a replacement sash or double hung window hardware Ausdens have the right product for you.
