Are Wooden Sash Windows Energy Efficient?
Wooden sash windows are not as energy efficient as modern uPVC profiles. Traditional sashes, manufactured using timber and single glazing won’t offer you the same standards of insulation that you will experience with double or triple glazed profiles.
Over time, timber can decay and wear down after exposure to adverse weather and challenging climates. As well as this, the single glazed panes will not be able to stop warm air from leaving your home, thus making them less energy efficient. This may also mean you see more expensive heating bills as the profiles will not be able to retain the heat as well.
