Hung windows rise vertically from bottom to top and are typically used when a narrower vertical orientation is required. Both single-hung and double-hung windows offer large unobstructed views and double-hung windows provide great air circulation from top and bottom. They are easy to clean and require little effort to open and close.
They are a perfect solution for heavy outside traffic areas such as decks, stairs, walkways or porches where it’s impractical to have an outside extrusion that’s typical of a casement or awning window.
Available in two configurations a single-hung tilt window has an upper fixed window, while the lower window can slide up or down to accommodate ventilation. Double-hung windows can be opened from the bottom up or top down for improved airflow.
For double hung-windows, both the upper and lower units can be easily and safely removed for cleaning. Single-hung windows allow for the removal of the lower glass unit and easier access to the outside surface of the upper fixed glass unit.

You bet it does! When you buy windows, a significant portion of the possible energy savings comes from the glass. So when you are comparing quotes, make sure to compare the glass as well. Less expensive glass solutions will cost you more in energy costs in the long run and you'll probably run into other issues.
