Drafts are common problems in indoor spaces, usually found in windows, doors, pipes leading outdoors and ceiling-to-wall-joints. This issue occurs when there are gaps in the construction and the opening remains unsealed to the outside. The cold air that enters your home can increase your energy costs and make your interior uncomfortable.

Once window films are placed and heated with a hair-dryer, they shrink and seal drafty windows. It’s best to ask for assistance when working on larger windows.
New door sweeps can make a significant difference in your home. Choose a wood sweep that can be painted or stained to match your door. There are various kinds of sweeps available, so make sure to ask an expert to determine which one is best for your door.
Weatherstrip seals are an effective way to deal with drafty doors and windows. However, this task is best left to window repair experts. Improper sealing can result in leaks, which are costlier to fix. Hiring a professional can ensure that the job is done effectively and properly the first time.
Door snakes are placed at the bottom of a window or door. They are weighted fabric tubes that aid in blocking chilly air.
Hang Insulated Curtains
Thermal curtains can prevent cold outside air from entering your home in the winter. They are also great during summer because they can help block out heat from the sun. However, they need to be closed to work, meaning your indoor spaces will receive less natural light.
