Frequently Asked Questions About Double-Hung Windows

Are Double Hung Windows Energy Efficient?

Double-hung windows can help you save energy as well as money on your monthly bills. However, this can depend on how many panes of glass each window has as well as gasses that are inserted between the panes during manufacturing. Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha and Lincoln representatives can help you find the window that fits your budget and will help you save money over time.

How do I clean double-hung windows?

Pella double-hung windows are easy to clean. Because they’re engineered with a tilt-in sash, all you have to do is press the release buttons and pull the sash toward you. From there you can use whatever cleaning product you prefer. You should also clean the tracks the sashes glide up and down along.

What material should I use for double-hung window frames?

Double-hung window frames come in our three primary options — wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Wood offers a classic look that matches many styles of architecture. They’re also easy to paint and stain if you decide you need a change.

Vinyl frames may not have the classic look of real wood, but they require less maintenance and are more affordable.

Fiberglass windows are built to last against even the harshest conditions.

When should I upgrade my double-hung windows?

The average lifespan for your windows ranges between 15 and 30 years. That range can be shorter or longer depending on how well you maintain them, what kind of weather conditions they’re up against, the quality of the installation, and many more factors.
There are several indicators that might suggest upgrading your double-hung windows:
• Your double-hung windows are not operating easily or properly
• There are cracks or fissures appearing around the seams of the frame
• You see spikes in your monthly bills that exceed seasonal fluctuation
• You notice drafts around the window frame.

Met with Don to get quotes on two windows for our house. He was very polite and very knowledgeable. Don was able to give us two different quotes based off our budget. I definitely recommend them just based on customer service alone.
