Your home is a haven. Adding a touch of style can enhance the relaxed and inviting feel you desire. Traditional sash windows can offer you a sense of style which will be in fitting with the heritage of your property and indeed that of the surrounding area. People can get the impression that sash windows are costly in regards to energy costs and that uPVC windows are a better option in regards to saving money. However this isn’t the case, as traditional sash windows can be fitted with Double Glazing and Draught Proofing measures, meaning all the energy saving benefits of modern uPVC windows but without losing the style and attractiveness of traditional sash windows.

The Nature of Double Glazing and Draught Proofing
The number of in-home quick window fixes is endless, but most of them don’t have lasting benefits to bring value for your money. They may be snazzy and exciting to see at first, but in time, wear out and aren’t as practical or beautiful as they once were. This is where both double glazing and draught proofing differs.
In simple terms, this refers to the layering of a window panel. Adhesive tapes and outlines are placed on to the four corners. This provides for another space for a sash to be installed, increasing the thickness of the window. The effect provides a more multidimensional view of a house’s façade and provides more protection from the sun.
This process involves placing additional cushions on window pane railings. They can hold the windows more in place, as they become firmly positioned onto the hinges. The method involves mastery of properly measuring a window’s dimensions, while at the same time solidly affixing the strips to the outlines. To learn more about the process of draught proofing, and how it can stop your heating bills disappearing out of the window, read our recent blog on How To Fix Draughty Sash Windows.
The Benefits of Double Glazing and Draught Proofing
Subtle Charm to Your Home
The more detailed and intricate works get increased appreciation, as in most art pieces. The same goes with beautifying your interior. Detailed attention on elements such as windows will add appeal and will add value to the home.
Provides Comfort, Noise Reduction & Energy Efficiency
The ingenious window highlights are more than just decoration. They actually contribute to regulating the temperature that comes in and out of the house. In effect, they add an additional line of defence for air and drafts. Noise is also muffled, as another layer of the window may sound proof the insides of the home.
When there are no window dividers as provided by double glazing and draft proofing, inside temperatures can be difficult to control. This leads to the usage of heaters and air conditioners to maintain a comfortable environment. Glazing and draught installations on the windows can lessen the need for power usage, which translates to electricity savings.
