We are living in a single bedroom apartment and the apartment is quite old and outdated. Heat is terrible on Summers and it gets freezing cold during Winters. We have been trying to figure out solutions to insulate our home through window treatments. Hubs came up with several researches about installing curtains, drapes, hardware for your window. It appears to be one of the most efficient and least expensive means of insulating together with some caulking job.

btw can you see our sheer curtain back there?...

As much as we want to keep our place warm on Winters and cool on Summers, we didn't want to compromise natural lighting. We installed sheer window curtains to block off heat and still let light come through. It's effective and kept our home temperature just right. To help taking out the warm air trapped by the ceiling, hubs installed small exhaust fans to also promote air circulation. Now that summer's almost over, we're happy that our system worked well though there were times when we had to use our air cooler on really hot days. Cold days are about to come so we'll be installing new window treatment to keep a warmer home and avoid using much heater.
