Lock your windows when closed

What does locking your windows do?

First, when a window is locked it typically forms a tighter seal between the two individual windows, so air is less likely to be leaked in our out of the house. Think about it. There has to be some gap for the windows to slide next to each other. Locking them often times reduces this gap drastically, giving the air less chance to leak out.

Additionally, locking a window gives you added security. It is much harder to enter a house through a locked window than an unlocked one.

If you do open your windows in cold weather for some reason, try to isolate the room from the rest of the house.

Make sure you close the window as soon as possible.
