single hung vs. double hung windows
I live in the Tampa Bay Florida area. Replacing windows can be very expensive due to local codes requiring impact windows. Going wih single hung windows vs. double hung can save approximately 30%. I am considering doing single hung for the home except for the two bedrooms. I am in a single family home on a corner lot facing west, and have numerous windows that provide good cross ventilation. I am just not sure how important it is to have the advantage of opening the top of the window. Opinions are welcome.
