Question about Heating & Cooling
Marvin Windows Casement and Stationary. When its 0 degrees outdoors in winter, I keep the indoor heat at 70-72, humidity down to 32%, ceiling fans running vents open and not blocked to window, crank covers off. I've put 3-5 coats of gloss polyurethane varnish on effected areas of window wood trim and wood sills. They are double paned windows. MW said there's nothing they can do.They are 11 y.o windows and the corners of the sills are molding. One pane frame rotted out completely. Our builder has the same problem in his home with his Anderson windows. A friend of mine had the same problem with the same MW windows as mine. What can I do?

I've had the same issue and solved it by installing the casement unit in the proper configuration (upright), leaving the casement window itself open (or, at least, closed right up to the side of the casement unit) then using a piece of plexigas to "close" the top section of the window. The plexiglass, when cut properly, will fit against the window frame and then some quarter-round moulding on the room side of the plexiglass will fasten it securely. You can add a bead of caulk on the inside to be sure there are no drafts/leaks. I've done this with two casement units in my home and have had no problems at all with the installations.
