Insulate Your windows

You should insulate your windows because they are some of the most vulnerable spots for heat loss due to drafts and heat transfer through the materials of the window. You can use weatherstripping, drapes, window film, bubble wrap, or rope caulk.

Draft-Proof Your Doors

Doors represent another way cold air seeps into your home. You can purchase special flaps or insulated brushes to put along the bottom of your doors to keep cold air out. For the sides and top, draft-proof strips help prevent air exchange between the inside and outside.

Great Curtains

Thermal curtains are great for preventing heat loss. Made of special materials, thermal curtains have linings that reduce cold air coming into your home. You can open the curtains during the day to let in sunlight for better radiant heat using the greenhouse effect.
