Sash Window Heat Loss
Sash window heat loss is a major problem with single glazed sash windows in many homes across Ireland. These homes needlessly suffer immense heat loss and pointlessly high heating bills as a result of this. But it should not be a problem and can be easily and quickly fixed by the Advance Glazing team.
Replacing single glazed sash panes with double-glazing is easily done and very effective.
If you have single glazing in your sashes and the existing sash is in good condition, the glazing can be easily replaced with double-glazed units. Advance Glazing provides a cost effective solution by having one of our sash technicians remove the single glazing, deepen the rebates to accommodate a double glazed unit, and install a new factory-made unit as required. We will then attach appropriate additional weights on the cord to balance the windows. You will notice a major difference in your window performance straightaway in terms of insulation and noise reduction, as each unit is Argon gas-filled and made using Pilkington K glass.
Not only will you feel the benefit of extra heat in your house, there will be a reduction in condensation on your glass and major energy savings. There is also the added peace of mind regarding the security of your house as double-glazed panes of glass present a greater challenge to potential burglars
It generally takes about a day to double glaze each window.
