One of the best ways to reduce heat loss in your home is getting curtains installed. Double-layered curtains are very effective at reducing heat loss through windows and reducing energy bills. If you’re handy, you can purchase and hang your own curtains. Curtains and tracks can be purchased from local homeware stores. Make sure they are double-layered! There’s plenty of install guides on YouTube.
