Replacing windows is not an easy decision. I do remember windows at my uncle's house, they were those old style single glass wood windows. So every time I stopped by at his place I was pressing him to replace these rusty windows, but he always said that windows are fine. His wife always was on my side, but he is a tough guy to persuade. One day I do remember, his wife was complaining that she can’t open the windows to refresh the room, but he said instead: "What are you talking about hun? Look!", he placed his hand next to the window, "I can feel the fresh air coming in to the house and the beauty of it you don’t even have to open the window". Yep, no doubt it was a lot of fresh air in the house, especially in winter time.
