Sash windows can be made from single, double, or triple panes of glass. The more panes of glass there are, the more energy efficient these windows will be. Some sash windows can also double as fire escapes, and these types of windows can be ideal for second and subsequent stories of a home. They can be made from vinyl, wood or aluminium, and may even tip inward for easy cleaning as well.
Average sash window costs primarily depend on the size of the window, the number of them being replaced, and the number of panes of glass. Wooden windows can be less expensive than vinyl or aluminium ones; however, they do not tend to last as long as windows made from those materials do. Custom windows can be rather expensive, but you may need them anyway if you have an opening that is an unusual size or shape. You can sometimes receive a discount for having windows installed during the off-season, or having multiple fixtures placed at one time.

Q. What are the pros and cons of a sash window?
A. These windows are often referred to as “heritage” windows as they date back to the late 16th century and are commonly found on older buildings. Most new buildings have replaced them with modern styles, although they are still available for people who like the old style charm that they provide. They are particularly good for providing air flow on a hot summer’s day, and are easy to clean. They are more draughty, but this can be easily overcome with a seal.
Q. How can I make my existing sash windows more energy efficient?
A. Depending upon the configuration of your windows, it may be possible to add double glazing to them. Decent contractors are also able to perform draught proofing in order to seal air leaks and make your windows more weathertight. Many times, these improvements will provide you with as much energy efficiency as new windows at a fraction of the cost.
