Living in a period property is a dream for many people. The classic style, the attention to detail, the spacious rooms, the history; let’s face it, modern homes don’t compare to the charming character of homes from yesteryear. If you live in a period property, however, you’ll soon realise that the dream does have a downside.
Technology has come a long way over the last century. Things we take for granted now such as a warm, secure home, had not yet been realised in the 19th and early 20th centuries. One of the main issues reported by people living in period properties is inefficient windows. If not quickly addressed, what initially may seem like a minor problem can quickly become more serious.
Problems with original period windows
Original single glazed sash windows are commonplace in many period properties. Unfortunately, these original windows have a limited lifespan. Over time, they will become prone to draughts, cold spots, and rattling frames which will lead to heat retention problems, security issues, and eventually mould and damp.
Poorly functioning windows can seriously damage your standard of living. A cold home which struggles to retain its heat is uncomfortable and inconvenient. It will cost you money on rising heating bills and can affect the cost of your home insurance. Unsecure frames can also be a safety issue both in terms of child safety and burglar resistance. Fortunately, there is a solution.
