Re: Double glazed, but the frames are c-c-cold!
Matt, the issue of the aluminum frames being a weak point in the thermal insulation was noted on here by Reace shortly after this site started up, and is in a discussion somewhere. There is not much one can do about it with the way most of these windows are built. At least not with keeping the cost and weight down. This holds true with the old aluminum sliders thousands of homes were fitted with in the 60's and 70's, the ones that froze shut all winter.
I have not had a worry about the windows. Are they sliding nice and freely? I use a wee bit of silicon spray to keep them sliding easy.
