Vertical Sliding Sash Windows Double Glazing Installation

Replacing your windows can make a huge difference to your home by increasing the comfort and kerb appeal plus boosting the energy efficiency of your home – making it easier and cheaper to keep warm.  A very welcome benefit in the current economic climate.

When is the right time to replace your windows?

Replacing your old glazing for new energy efficient windows is a worthwhile investment in your home and like with all good investments, you want to get the timing just right. Not before the end of the lifecycle of your existing windows but before they start costing you money in heat loss. However, the signs that it’s time to replace your windows are not always glaringly obvious.

What are the signs that it’s time to replace your windows?
Draughts and Cold Spots

Feeling draughts in your home is one of the most obvious signs that your windows are not performing as they should. You might also notice that you are finding it hard to keep your home cosy due to the heat loss because if cold air is getting in through your old windows, it means that the warm air from your heating is getting out too! Recent research carried out by industry experts estimates that as much as £616 a year is wasted through heat loss in UK homes. 

Difficult to Operate

Windows that are difficult to open or close or won’t stay open can be a pain, and also dangerous – especially for little fingers. It’s also a sure sign that your windows are no longer performing as they should. Properly functioning windows are important for keeping your home well-ventilated, improving the air quality, and keeping your home safe and secure.

Noise Pollution

Exposure to outdoor noise pollution from inside your home can have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing including stress and chronic sleep disturbance. If you find that you can’t relax or nod off due to outdoor sounds, it might be time to replace your windows. Live an extremely noisy area? There are double and triple glazing profiles with exceptional acoustic values especially suited to high traffic, urban environments.

Poor Kerb Appeal

Windows and doors are the first thing visitors see when they visit your home. Worn and warped windows can give a negative impression of both the inside and the outside. Especially if you plan on selling your home in the future. Upgrading your old windows to new energy efficient double glazing can add value to your property and make it more marketable to prospective buyers.


Is your window damaged or cracked? or maybe it’s starting to look foggy between the panes of glass? 

These are definitely telltale signs that your window isn’t performing as it should and is likely contributing to heat loss in the home and should be replaced.
