Question DetailsAsked on 1/26/2014

Air leaks around windows in a manufactured home?

We had replacement windows put in a couple of years ago which has greatly improved our heating and cooling bills but still have to put plastic over doorwall, several windows and fireplace.

Where is the air leakag coming from?


If between the operable components of the window, providing it is installed correctly, there may not be much that can be serviced.


If betweent the replacement window and the wall, it was not properly sealed and you should be able to get that tightened up better.


If it is between the window trim/casing and the wall, that is usually indicative of a poorly sealed exterior wall and the repair for that is more involved.


Please tell me more about the replacement windows, original windows, and exterior wall construction.


Thanks.
