Noisy Windows again

Help please.

I had wooden window frames with secondary double glazing in my upstairs bedroom. It is a room built into the roof of a bungalow.

I had the wooden window frames and secondary glazing removed in favour of new PVC double glazed windows.

Had no problems until recently, now it seems the slightest wind will cause a whistling noise loud enough to keep me awake. Opening the window seems to stop te noise, but it is cold.

Thanks in advance.

the finishings have not been sealed properly.
ie...............cills, facings, or rebates..........take em off, facings.......... :LOL: :LOL: plaster up to cill and refit facings...
sorry.............advice maybe too simple, check outside has been sealed......
check seals are tight onto sashs when closed.. open window sash put piece of A4 paper between seal and sash close the try to pull out the paper ...there should be resistance on the paper before you can pull it out...if it it comes out easly the sashs need adjusting...and this could be the sorce of the whistling....could also be that the trickle vents may not be beded tight to the frame
