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.
We actually talk about this a little on our site. Granted, we’re in Colorado, but it’s still relevant to anyone.
“Green Seal estimates that if all windows in the U.S. were as energy efficient as those made by Andersen® Windows, Americans would save up to 2.5 percent of the annual U.S. energy consumption—an estimated 200 gallons of oil for every household in the U.S.”
