SASH WINDOWS VS CASEMENT WINDOWS

The big difference between sash and casement windows, is that sash windows don't use a hinge mechanism to open, they slide. Each sash window has got two panels, whereby one or both of them are able to slide vertically behind the other one. To enable the window to be opened to any size of gap for varying ventilation needs, counterbalances and sash cords keep the window in place. The classic sash windows didn't move in any other direction than simply up and down, but modern versions allow for vertical or horizontal movement, in addition to tilting variants that are much easier to clean.

Enhanced room ventilation capabilities is one of the chief benefits that sash windows have over their casement counterparts. If both bottom and top sashes are able to slide you can establish a convection flow of air within your property, with warmer air exiting through the higher gap, and cooler air entering through the gap at the bottom. This gain is particularly useful in summer months and helps to increase personal comfort levels around your house in Thornbury.

Georgian - With typically six independent panes in the top sash, over six independent panes in the bottom sash, the "six over six" Georgian sash window is easy to spot. The Half-Georgian is an adaption of this style with a single pane in one half, and six panes in the other, while a Georgian-variant sees a window which can have different sized panes in upper and lower, as long as one half of the sash window counts 6 panes.

Victorian - The Victorian sash window is typically a two over two panel design which can also incorporate a central bar, or adaptations such as asymmetric (two over three, three over two etc).

Edwardian - A 6 over 2 configuration which is similar in design to a half Georgian.

Rather than rack your brain pondering all of these different designs, you may find that it's easier to just get in touch with your local Thornbury sash window installation company, and ask their advice on which is the right style for your house.

Sash Window Trickle Vents Thornbury

If you have sash windows fitted in your home or business premises in Thornbury, you need to make sure that every room has enough ventilation. This is an aspect that is often ignored as we all seek to enhance the insulation in our homes. Yet, if you are to minimise problems like dampness, black mould and condensation, a degree of ventilation is essential.

Without actually opening your windows constantly, the installation of trickle vents is the best way to enable ventilation. These handy little vents sometimes come fitted as standard with uPVC windows, however if your sash windows made from timber or some alternative material, you may need to bring in a specialist to put some in.

Trickle vents are fitted at the top of a sash window, and fresh air flows through from outside "trickling" vertically down the window panes, thereby preventing condensation on the inside of the glass, and alleviating the associated issues that come with this.

So you do not detract from the clean lines of your windows, try to purchase flush fitting low-profile trickle vents where possible. Some trickle vents on the market are somewhat obtrusive and won't look as neat as the low-profile ones.
