Use Window Coverings To Help Insulate Your Home's Single-Pane Windows

Single-pane windows offer little insulation against the cold during winter. Homes that have single-pane windows, USwitch says, can lose up to 20 percent of their heat through their windows. In contrast, double- and triple-pane windows provide better insulation, but they cost much more than single-pane windows. If your house has single-pane windows, and you don't have the money needed to install multi-pane windows, window coverings can be used to create a comparable insulating effect.
