Badly Installed aluminum double hung windows in a rental
ok so i live in a loft in nyc (noisy) and my main room (the largest) has 7 large aluminum double hung windows. I feel the windows were badly installed because they have a bit too much airspace between the sash and the windows so it's basically like leaving the window open and it lets the noise in.. is there anything i can do? right now there's wool pile in a track around the window but it doesn't even touch the sash. I haven't even been able to find a thicker wool pile that fits in the track size i have.. i was looking at bubble seal but i don't know if i could use that, it seems like it would make a better seal and i guess i could put some lubricant on the sash so the rubber bubble would still slide.
i'm just sick of these windows the way they are.
thanks in advanced.
