 Re: Draft coming through new vinyl windows

Yes, the windows have soft coat Low-E, argon fill. Lifetime on frame, parts, 20 yrs for seal failure, 3 yrs glass breakage, and 2 yrs on installation.
My husband says he has noticed a sound reduction, a friend of mine also had new windows put in her house, and she also said she has not noticed any sound reduction either. Maybe some women have more sensitive ears than some men. The old wood windows had a large "dead air space" between the storm and the window. These new vinly windows don't have that, so maybe that is why I'm noticing that sound difference.
