What are the Causes of Sash Window Draughts?


Old Window Seals

Old window seals allow air to creep into your home through the gaps between frames and panes of glass, and this can have a huge effect on your energy bill each month.

Damaged window seals

If there are splits or gaps in the seals this can cause the wind to blow in and out of the cavity, causing draughts in your sash windows.

Old frames

Draughts may also affect your sash windows when the cracks, gaps, and other openings between the frame parts lose energy.

Damaged frames

If the frame of a sash window is damaged, it will lead to gaps through which air can enter your home and cause draughts.

Poor installation

Poorly installed sash windows are the single largest cause of draughts and heat loss through your windows. If the frame is not well sealed, air can blow through and out of the seams.

Damaged structure

Sash windows are made up of a number of individual components. These can become damaged over time as a result of poor maintenance or vandalism. This can allow draughts to enter your home.

Absence of draught-proofing seals

Without proper proofing seals, cold air could get into your living space easily, causing draughts. The reason being that sash windows need a good proofing seal to keep the warmth in and the cold air out.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does draught-proofing sash windows work?

Yes. Draught proofing sash windows is proven to be effective. The difference it can make, however, will vary depending on the extent of the problem and the workmanship of the job itself.

Why does my window make noises?

The primary reason they do this is because of the window moving in and out. This movement creates small amounts of friction between the frame or sashes and the window opening. This friction causes movement which produces noise.

How long will draught-proofing measures last?

Draught proofing measures should last the life of the building. However, as draught-proofing materials deteriorate or become affected by dirt or corrosion, their effectiveness decreases, thereby increasing the likelihood of draughts. To ensure your draught-proofing measures last, we recommend that you invest in an annual maintenance contract or inspection by a professionally trained specialist.

How do I stop my sash windows from rattling?

In most cases, draughty windows are caused by loose or broken sashes or poor weather seals. These problems can usually be easily by a professional draught-proofing installer who have the knowledge and experience. He will be able to supply missing sash cords and install proper weather seals to stop your sash windows from rattling.

What is the main reason for draught-proofing?

The main objective of this is to stop cold air from coming in through open windows, and warm air going out through them. It’s a mechanical process that allows homeowners or building owners to cut down on their heating bills.

Are references available from previous customers?

Most definitely, just take a look through the testimonials section on our website. If you feel that this is not enough as far as assurances go please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to speak with past customers personally via phone or email.

Can my uPVC window be draught proofed?

The answer is YES, your uPVC window can be draught proofed. When a sash window is fitted into a frame using uPVC, the hole left behind at the rear of the sash unit is sealed with a special sealant or glaze in order to create an airtight bond and prevent any air leakage.

Does draught-proofing require building regulations?

Yes, draught-proofing does require building regulations to ensure that work carried out during renovations falls within a high standard and quality, ensuring that the homeowner is safe at all times. Our sash window draught-proofing systems will allow you to meet all aspects of the building regulations for your sash window draught-proofing.
