They usually will tilt in for cleaning in better models. This is a contrast to the double hung in that the top sash of the window; is fixed and, does not operated for ventilation or for tilt and clean features. The advantage to the single hung over the double hung is that as a fixed top panel it is less likely to succomb to air infiltration in high winds. This is better from a performance standpoint. The single hung is also less expensive than the double hung windows. Most manufacturers have a single hung model of some type and this can often save on window costs.
