Sash window draught proofing London does not need to be expensive or time consuming. The typical cost for a sash window draught proof in London is £200 to £250 per window. This will include the full service of taking the windows apart, making the weights balance with the sash(so that when the window is put back together it does not cascade down), making good any small defects, and normally you may even get some sash window furniture in that price!
So now we’ve got past the pricing why on Earth aren’t you doing it? The payback for sash window draught proofing London is around 4 years only because the system will result in saved heating to the tune of around £50 per year. This is pretty epic right? Well it actually gets better. Because the windows will have a complete seal this will mean that noise is reduced, whilst the quality of air is also improved because no dirt can pass through into the home from the windows anymore. This will help with sash window sound proofing as well. This is a double bonus because I am sure you will have seen many net curtains that have terrible black and faded stains from the dirt ingress as a result of car emissions mainly. Nasty black carbon that’s pumped directly into the road, straight into your home.
Well that’s a thing of the past with a draught proofing system and it’s important to remember that draught proofing sash windows London is a service noted by the Government and as a result the draught proofing is charged at just 5% Vat which is a really nice saving. I mean say you’ve ten windows and many homes will have more, it means that you’ll save approximately £300 on normal VAT costs. It all adds up. Actually I find it strange that we are desperate to lower our carbon footprint and as a result of lowering our carbon footprint we will also lower the likelihood of global warming, it surprises me that this is not zero VAT rated!? Oh well normal greedy old government story they still want a cut even if you’re trying to do your bit for the environment.
