This guidance note provides advice on the principles, risks, materials and methods for improving the thermal performance of existing windows and doors by draught-proofing. Draught-proofing is one of the most cost effective and least intrusive ways of improving the comfort of occupants and reducing energy used for heating with little or no change to a building’s appearance. It has the added benefit of helping to reduce noise and keeping out dust. Windows and doors of the original pattern and material make a major contribution to the character of historic buildings and every effort should be made to retain them rather than replace them. Windows and doors can tell us a lot about the history of a building; changing architectural taste and style, social hierarchy, building economics, craft skills and technical advances. Windows in particular are often a key element which establishes the character of a building and often the character of a neighbourhood.
