I live in a beautiful, historic Brownstone in Upstate NY. It was built around 1873. Miraculously, it retains most of the original woodwork, plaster mouldings/walls, hardwood floors, marble fireplaces (5), etc. With that being said, it also has all the original, DRAFTY windows, 12 to be exact, and 2 newer windows that are installed incorrectly. Along with the drafty, old windows, I've noticed that the house always feels a lot colder than the outside temperature. Why is that? Even in the Summer months, I've noticed this; which at times, I don't mind, b/c it saves on the cost of using an AC; however, once we enter into the Fall months, and we have those unusual, but pleasantly warm days, my house still feels extremely cold! I find myself having to open my front door and all windows, just to get the warm air inside. I would like to know what is causing my house to feel so cold even when it's warm outside, and how can I fix it?
Any good advise is appreciated!
