Drafty Windows

Drafty windows are a real nightmare. You might not notice them right away, but a drafty window can really have a significant impact on how comfortable your home is. The constant influx of outside air can make it difficult for you to achieve a constant and comfortable temperature in your home.

Modern windows offer fantastic insulation thanks to the fact that multiple panes of glass are used. This means that cold and hot air find it difficult to pass between those panes and affect the temperature on the other side.
