patching mortar between bricks

Can having missing mortar between the bricks cause insulation problems? I have replaced the windows and still find cold air getting in. I noticed several places outside where the mortar between the bricks is missing.
Can anyone offer help on the best way to repair this?

Tami,
Missing mortar can be more of a water problem. Any loose mortar should be chipped/cleaned out and the mortar replaced. If there is missing mortar between the brick and window that area can be caulked to keep out any water(and possible drafts).
