How much can you save by draught proofing your sash windows?

By carrying out a full draught proofing on your home you could save on average £55 per year according to the Energy Saving Trust. By doing so you will benefit from not losing hot air from your home meaning you can turn down your thermostat or reduce your heating temperature. Thus saving you another £65 per year. Imagine the effects on properties with sash windows as they experience bigger loses of heating, could they save even more?

The Energy Saving Trust also suggests that if every household in the UK was to carry out this procedure on their home, every year the UK would save £180 million which would be enough to heat nearly 930,000 homes. So not only does it improve the energy efficiency within your own home but it reduces the consumption of the UK in general.
