American Windows & Glass: Double Hung or Sliding?

American Windows & Glass have a large line of different window styles you can choose from. Two of the most popular are Sliding windows and Double Hung windows. Which one is right for you? It depends on what you want out of your window and where you'll be placing your window. 

 

Sliding Window

Sliding (or gliding or slider) windows have sashes that slide either left or right in s single frame. A slide window can open both sides at the same time which will give your home maximum ventilation when you need it. These are best for when the width is greater than the height you have in the space. Also rooms who may need more often ventilation, like a kitchen or dining room or laundry room.  

 Double Hung Window

These windows also have two sashes in a single frame but they go up and down instead of sideways. These windows have easy-to-use tilt sashes that make cleaning very easy and accessible. These windows are perfect for when the height is a little higher than the width you have for each window. Since they are easy to clean, these are very popular in bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms. 

 

Whichever combination of windows works best for your home, C.H.I. Roofing would be happy to expertly install them for you. Call 513-731-ROOF for a free no-risk estimate!

What is Energy Star & Why Does It Matter?

Energy Star is a certification you see on a lot of electronics. For instance your computer or blue ray player may have this logo on it somewhere. 

This shows these electronic items are using energy efficient technology certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Energy Star is a voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through energy efficiency. 

Did you know the EPA also certifies windows? 

The windows that C.H.I. Roofing use, both Pella & American Window & Glass are Energy Star certified. 

This matters because Energy Star windows:

  • Keep temperatures stable: Energy Star windows don't let drafts inside and don't keep too much heat for too long! 
  • Save You Cash: Energy Star certified doors and windows lower your utility costs. With efficient windows and doors you use less energy which reduces green house gas emissions from power plants. In a typical household Energy Star windows and doors can save you an average of $100-$550 for each window!
  • Keeps Sun damage to a minimum: many energy star windows have special coatings to reduce unnecessary sun damage to your items that live near your windows!
