Sash Window Draught-proofing:



We are able to draught-proof any and all timber sash windows in Swansea, Mumbles, across Gower, and much of South Wales.


The methods used are discrete, don't negatively affect the character of your sash windows, and are highly effective at reducing unwanted draughts into your property.


Research [Cadw Wales and Historic England] shows that the majority of heat loss through windows is caused by air infiltration (not, as you might think, convection through glass), making draught-proofing not only a considerably cheaper alternative to replacement/double-glazed windows, but also a more effective one.


Draught-proofing your sash windows also has some additional benefits: by reducing unwanted draughts, you'll find the rooms where you have sash windows staying warm for longer in the colder months - saving heating energy usage (a benefit in environmental terms), and therefore potentially reducing your energy bills (a clear benefit in personal financial terms!)  


Additionally, draught-proofing your sash windows often has a more immediate and functional benefit, where reduced gaps and a better-fitting environment allow for smoother and easier movement, despite the windows being housed more 'tightly'.
