What is the best way to keep heat from escaping through our windows? Are heavy curtains useful?

    Replace them with better windows.  They have all kinds of newer high tech windows that are made to reduce heat loss.  But, if this is not an option, or you do already have these windows, you have some other options as well.  First you want to make sure there are no leaks around your windows and that they seal properly.  Second, if you live in a place where it snows or gets very cold in the winter, you can seal your windows with a plastic layer to help prevent heat loss.  Lastly, heavy curtains do help, so draw them at night, but you may want to leave them open during the day, at least on the sunny side of the house.
