Draughty windows are a common occurrence in many homes. The main cause of draughty windows is faulty hinges; the rubber seal can also perish and allow draughts to get in. Another cause of draughty windows can be that the window opening may not be square and will drop showing a gap in the corner above the handle.
Window hinges are a very important part of your window hardware. Well fitted hinges are designed to run smoothly along the track to open out and ventilate the room and close to seal the window against the frame. To get the best from your hinges special care must be given to cleaning and lubrication. When your window hinges have failed or are strained you will notice an increase in noise from outside, draughts and dirt around the frame and on blinds. In winter the effect is more obvious as cold air from outside can make your house much colder.
