Question: Why does it seem like there is a draft coming from the windows during the winter?
Answer: It may appear that there are drafts around windows during cold weather, even though they are adequately glazed, fitted and weather-stripped. With some possible exceptions, such as extreme wind conditions, the draft felt may be due to vertical air movement over the face of the window-this is convention-warm air rising and cooler air dropping. Another common sensation is that of a draft experienced when sitting or standing close to a window. This chill may be due to heat radiating from your body to a relatively cooler surface-the window.
