Sash windows are a unique period feature and possess many distinct advantages in terms of their minimal environmental impact and comparatively low maintenance and installation costs.
- They were designed to open at the bottom and the top (up to 50%) creating an air-flow system whereby cool air can flow in through the bottom and hot air is drawn out through the top. This minimises condensation build up. When closed, a brush-pile draught exclusion system can eradicate draughts and dramatically reduce heat loss and energy use.
- All the components of a sash window are reparable which, when regularly maintained, will extend their longevity (consider this in relation to PVC whose longevity is finite and must be replaced and discarded when defunct).
- You could also consider upgrading your current single-glazed sash to a double-glazed window thus reducing noise, heat loss and energy costs even further.
