Often one of the issues with older windows in period properties, which are very important to preserve in a condition as close to the original as possible, are cold air draughts and heat leakage through the windows. While owners generally assume they need to replace the glazing or install double glazing, in reality the air gaps are usually in the frame, whether from simple wear over time or from improper sealing of the windows at some stage during their lifetime.
As well as this, noise pollution, a more and more common complaint these days, is exacerbated by the small openings which allow cold air in and warm air out. Almost all of the heat loss in period homes is due to draughts and improper sealing, and the problems can increase over time, sometimes even leading to the window refusing to open, which can happen with rot buildup or timber swelling.
