About convection and draughts
Convection is a constant current of air which is triggered by the difference of temperatures between the window surface and the air inside your apartment. Typically, the window surface is much colder, especially during winter time. Since cold air is heavier than the hot one, after cooling against the window surface it flows down, bringing inhabitants a strong sense of discomfort. Despite the fact that the window is well-shut and has no chinks, they feel a draught of cold air.
