If your windows aren’t energy efficient, they’re working against you. Heat can escape through windows that aren’t properly insulated, or the cold air can force itself in during the winter months. Either way, it drives up your energy bills. Don’t let your windows become your enemy! Follow these tips below to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of your home.
Check For Air Leaks
Even if your windows are relatively new and in good condition, you should check each of them for places where air can escape. For windows that don’t open, use caulk to seal off any air gaps. For windows that do, use weatherstrips.
Invest in Window Coverings
Both internal and external coverings could be the extra boost your current windows need to keep the heat indoors, where it belongs. For this, you have more than a few options, including shades, blinds, curtains and shutters. The upside to using any of these methods is that they are also great for privacy. Keep in the heat, and keep out the nosy neighbors.
