Plate Glass

Plate glass, like most other glass used in buildings, is not that great of an insulator. The rate at which it allows heat to pass through is basically dependent only on its thickness. If you have old windows, but would rather keep them than replace them, there are a few things you can do to insulate the space around them (and save a few bucks on heating and cooling costs in the process).

Probably the fastest and easiest way to hinder heat transfer is to add another layer of protection. A set of thick drapes or tight blinds over an old window will create an air buffer, making it more energy efficient. Storm windows are another effective way to create an additional layer of protection and insulation.

You can also refurbish the frame of the old window and fill in gaps along the way. Loose glass can be stabilized in the frame using putty. Examine the frame and look for any places where air could seep through. The seam between the wall and the window trim is often a problem area that can be filled with caulk. After a bit of weatherproofing, you may find that the frame, not the glass, was the bigger culprit in heat transfer.
