Installing Replacement Window Sashes in Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

Up to half of the heating and cooling loss in older homes is due to heat loss and gain through single pane glass windows along with air infiltration in the weather stripping around the sash.

While you could replace the entire window unit, a less expensive option is to install sash packs that replace the sash and balance tracks without removing the window frame.
