No, mine are air-tight. You shouldn't be feeling any outside air. You'e got a leak in the seal somewhere. Hopefully you're still under warranty. Not sure how much to repair if not.

You can always put a burning candle in front of the windows to see if you have an actual draft coming through the windows or perhaps it's just cold infiltration passing through the glass and frames.

If you open your windows and look at the sealing gasket that the window seals against you'll see something baffling. There are two spaces that don't have any gasket material on them on each window. They believe this is for ventilation and drainage. Unless you have the double pane option you're going to get air leakage.

Must be model specific these two spaces in the gasket material. I don't have that problem on my windows.
