Single Hung (Single-Tilt) Windows

are energy efficient and built with the highest quality vinyl to withstand weathering.

Windows are such an essential part of the home, it’s important to be aware of the different styles available. A single hung window is one of the most common and classic types of windows for your home.

Costs for a Single Hung Window

A single hung window is usually less expensive than the double hung variety. This is because single hung windows need less hardware because only one sash is operable. A single hung window costs anywhere between $100 to $250 and up.

How Long Will Single Hung Window Last?

The durability of your single hung window depends heavily on the type of material used for the frame. While a wooden frame provides a warm, elegant, and natural look for your home, wood is not as durable a material as some other options. A fiberglass single hung window frame can be designed to imitate wood, and this type of frame is still charming and more durable, requiring very little maintenance. A vinyl single hung window frame is another good option, as vinyl also requires little maintenance and may improve insulation for your home.

Repairs and Maintenance

It’s important to clean your single hung window several times a year in order to keep it working properly. Because only one sash can be opened and closed, a single hung window will be slightly more difficult to clean and dust. Additionally, unlike a double hung window, homeowners must clean their single hung windows from the outside in order to fully maintain the window system. While this may not be a problem if your windows are on the ground floor, it may be more difficult if you have a single hung window on any of your home’s upper levels.

Energy Efficiency

A single hung windows is known for being a slightly more energy efficient option than double hung windows. Because only one of the sashes is able to be opened, there are less opportunities for the window to leak heat, causing your home to lose warmth. However, only being able to open one sash limits the amount of ventilation in your house, which may be a problem in warmer months. The type of glass used for your single hung window also determines your window’s overall energy efficiency.

What to think about if you are replacing your windows

Windows provide our homes with light, warmth, and ventilation, but they can also negatively impact a home’s energy efficiency. You can reduce energy costs by installing energy-efficient windows in your home. If your budget is tight, energy efficiency improvements to existing windows can also help.

Improving the Energy Efficiency of Existing Windows

You can improve the energy efficiency of existing windows by adding storm windows, caulking and weather stripping, and using window treatments or coverings.

Selecting New Energy-Efficient Windows

What is an energy efficient window?
Energyefficient windows provide space heating and lighting to this sunny kitchen. … Windows provide our homes with light, warmth, and ventilation, but they can also negatively impact a home’s energy efficiency. You can reduce energy costs by installing energyefficient windows in your home.
Installing ENERGY STAR qualified windows lowers energy bills and saves you money over single-pane and even new double-paned, clear-glass windows. For a typical home, choose ENERGY STAR and save: $126$465 a year when replacing single-pane windows. $27$111 a year over double-pane, clear glass replacement windows.

 

Look beyond the window

Poorly installed windows won’t deliver the comfort or performance you paid for.
But a reputable dealer – a licensed, insured company that sells and installs replacement windows – can help ensure your new energy-efficient windows deliver their full value.

During installation, make sure to check on important factors like:

  • A little extra room for shimming and insulating
  • Existing trim work that is secure and big enough to fit your replacement windows
  • Fiberglass insulation or non-expanding foam insulation that fills every crevice – Check for drafts by holding a flame up to the window to see if it flickers.
  • Proper flashing, drip cap included

Energy Performance Ratings for Windows, Doors, and Skylights

You can use the energy performance ratings of windows, doors, and skylights to tell you their potential for gaining and losing heat, as well as transmitting sunlight into your home.

Energy Performance Testing, Certification, and Labeling

The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) operates a voluntary program that tests, certifies, and labels windows, doors, and skylights based on their energy performance ratings. The NFRC label provides a reliable way to determine a window’s energy properties and to compare products.

The NFRC label can be found on all ENERGY STAR® qualified window, door, and skylight products, but ENERGY STAR bases its qualification only on U-factor and solar heat gain coefficient ratings, which are described below

Windows, doors, skylights can gain and lose heat in the following ways:

  • Direct conduction through the glass or glazing, frame, and/or door
  • The radiation of heat into a house (typically from the sun) and out of a house from room-temperature objects, such as people, furniture, and interior walls
  • Air leakage through and around them.

These properties can be measured and rated according to the following energy performance characteristics:

Air leakage: The rate of air infiltration around a window, door, or skylight in the presence of a specific pressure difference across it. It’s expressed in units of cubic feet per minute per square foot of frame area (cfm/ft2). A product with a low air leakage rating is tighter than one with a high air leakage rating.

U-factor: The rate at which a window, door, or skylight conducts non-solar heat flow. It’s usually expressed in units of Btu/hr-ft2-ºF. For windows, skylights, and glass doors, a U-factor may refer to just the glass or glazing alone. But National Fenestration Rating Council U-factor ratings represent the entire window performance, including frame and spacer material. The lower the U-factor, the more energy-efficient the window, door, or skylight.

Solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC)

A fraction of solar radiation admitted through a window, door, or skylight—either transmitted directly and/or absorbed, and subsequently released as heat inside a home. The lower the SHGC, the less solar heat it transmits and the greater its shading ability. A product with a high SHGC rating is more effective at collecting solar heat gain during the winter. A product with a low SHGC rating is more effective at reducing cooling loads during the summer by blocking heat gained from the sun. Therefore, what SHGC you need for a window, door, or skylight should be determined by such factors as your climate, orientation, and external shading
