Winter Weather Window Tips

Winter Weather Window Tips


Below are some Cold weather window tips

  • Install tight- fitting, insulating window shades on windows that feel drafty after weatherizing.

Consider insulated cellular shades, which are “honeycombed” and can be raised or lowered. Obtain energy efficiency ratings for window attachments from the AERC (aercnet.org).

  • Close your curtains and shades at night to protect against cold drafts; open them during the day to let in warming sunlight.
  • Apply low-e film on the inside of your windows to keep heat from radiating out. Films are rated by the NFRC and will be rated by the AERC.
  • Alternatively, install low-e exterior or interior storm windows, which can save you 12%–33% on heating and cooling costs, depending on the type of window already in- stalled in the home. They should have weather stripping at all movable joints; be made of strong, durable materials; and have inter- locking or overlapping joints.

• Repair and weatherize your current storm windows, if necessary.
