Choosing the Best Window Type for Your Home, Green, Ohio

When it comes to home improvement projects, deciding on window installation can be a challenge. That’s because windows aren’t always a one-size-fits-all solution. According to the window installation experts at Murphy Home Improvement in Cincinnati, OH, it pays to do your homework before choosing which type of window is best for you.

Murphy Home Improvement has more than 30 years of experience installing windows. In their over three decades of service, Murphy Home Improvement’s team of professionals has helped countless clients narrow down the best window options for their home.

Here is what you need to know about two of the most popular windows on the market:

Horizontal Slider Windows

Horizontal windows, or slider windows, are mounted on a track for easy opening and closing. This window setup allows for a larger window, which in turn, can brighten up the room by letting in more light and air. Horizontal slider windows are also easy to clean. Because these windows don’t have many moving parts, they are typically considered more efficient than other options. This means greater savings in terms of your energy bills.

Single and Double Hung Windows

windowsSingle and double hung windows open vertically and are a popular option when the homeowner wants several windows installed throughout a room. This setup allows for maximum visibility of the outside and is aesthetically balanced. These windows are perfect for indoor air conditioning units and are also a favorite among parents with small children because of the ability to lock double hung windows for safety. These windows can also be cleaned easily, especially if you choose ones with tilt-in sashes.
