Single hung means that only the bottom sash is operable, double hung means that both the top and bottom sashes are operable( top sash can be lowered, bottom sash can be raised). This was a usefull thing pre air condition when the lower sash would be raised on some and the upper sash lowered on others to creat a natutral convection current, but I personally think the only advantage of double hung today is that the top sash can usually be tilted in, allowing the outside of the glass to be cleaned from inside the room.
