I have a question about replacement windows...over the summer I had all my
windows replaced with brand new "replacement" windows, not "new build"
windows. Yesterday was a very windy day(65mph) and with the windows shut and
locked, I could feel cold air blowing in from the sides, where the 2 sashes
come together along the tracks on the wall that they slide up/down on(follow
me?) I know when they were installed, there was insulation stuffed in the
gaps before the finishing boards were put on.. anyway, my question is, does
every/any window always have some amount of air leakage?
Thanks for any input.

My house has been thru 3 hurricanes and 2 tropical storms ...and I've
never felt any noticeable air flow along the side of the windows. The
windows in the house are nothing special, probably bottom of the line.
So I'd guess that your window isn't well insulated or it simply wasn't
designed with a tight seal between parts.
