A poorly maintained sash window can cause draughts within a living area that can seem the equivalent to a small window or vent being open, making your home or room uncomfortable and cold to inhabit as well as wasting money on your heating bills and impacting on the environment. Sealing a sash window to stop draughts without professional help can be tricky to say the least. The window halves slide up and down and tend to rip off any glued-on window seals.
The gaps can also be irregular over the length of the channels of the frame so that sometimes several layers of traditional sticky seals are applied leading to even bigger problems with peeling. In essence when it comes to draught proofing a sash window and any form of draught proofing for that matter, the name of the game is to bring the ventilation of a room back under your control and not at the mercy of gaps and draughts. This is where True Sash Draught Proofing Sysytem can help.
