Saving energy has a number of benefits for homeowners, from reducing energy bills month after month to improving one’s carbon footprint. Sliding sash windows can provide homes with a classic, elegant look and have been a popular choice for UK homeowners for centuries. However, with the rising cost of energy bills and cost of living, how do sliding sash windows save energy compared to other window types?

At Quickslide, we have been manufacturing sliding sash windows for almost 20 years and have developed a sliding sash design that perfectly combines modern energy-saving features with the classic feel of sliding sash windows. Customers could save on their energy bills without compromising the style of their classic home by installing windows manufactured by Quickslide.

Energy Efficient Design

Our sliding sash windows save energy with their high-quality double glazing comprising two panes of glass situated close to each other within a 24mm sealed unit. These twin panes are separated by a tiny gap of argon gas (better than air!) that acts as a powerful insulator, which can prevent heat from escaping outside a home. By letting less heat escape, homeowners can make better use of the heat their home generates, potentially reducing how often they turn their central heating systems on. 

Although sliding sash windows with double glazing trap heat within homes very efficiently, during the summer, when it’s overbearingly hot, our sliding sash windows can have the opposite effect. They can keep excess heat from the sun out and stop it from heating up the home to unbearable temperatures, letting homeowners stay comfortable all year round. Both sashes can slide up and tilt inwards for excellent ventilation. 

It’s not just the double glazed glass unit that make sliding sash windows save energy. The uPVC profile also helps reduce unwanted heat loss as the profiles contain hidden chambers that trap heat, preventing it from conducting through to the other side. The chambers also add to the robustness of the frame.

Our sliding sash windows achieve an outstanding ‘A’ energy rating and a U-values of 1.4 W/m2K as standard. With our comprehensive 10 year manufacturing guarantee, you can market our windows as long lasting and energy saving solutions for anyone looking to improve the thermal efficiency of their home. They can even be upgraded to our high security PAS 24 package for complete peace of mind!

Homes can stay warmer for extended periods of time when you install our double glazed sliding sash windows. Learn more about double glazing and how it can help you save energy here.

Weather Performance Features

Our sliding sash windows come with a number of other features, some optional, that can save energy. These features include wool pile strips, and a weather bar which is mainly a design feature but may act as an additional barrier of drafts. Keeping out harsh weather elements is integral to saving energy. No matter how thermally efficient the glazing is, it’s important to check that the sash window has been tested to the British weather standards. Quickslide’s sash windows surpass the British standards.

Quickslide’s sliding sash windows come with colour matched trickle vents for optimal ventilation required by law in most situations alongside wool pile strips available in colours that match the rest of the profile. By colour matching our weather performance features, our sliding sash windows can save energy while looking stylish.
