Single hung windows are sash-type windows that open vertically. They’re what most people picture when they think of standard windows, and for good reason –they’ve been around for almost 400 years.
Both single hung and double hung windows feature an upper and lower sash, but unlike double hung windows, in which both sashes move, only one sash moves in a single hung window while the other is fixed. As a result, single sash windows are less effective at ventilating a room than double sash.
Single sash windows tend to be less expensive than their double hung counterparts because they require fewer moving parts and are easier to construct.
