New York City Homeowner's Guide -
The Exterior (part 2)

The Exterior

Windows are a significant source of heat loss on most homes. Windows should be double pane. If yours aren't, and you can't afford to replace them just yet, consider installing storm windows. Shutters will also provide insulation. Obviously, the better the shutters fit, the better the insulation. And awnings on south-facing windows can be used to minimize the summer sun, helping reduce the inside temperature without using energy to do so.

Closely planted shrubs or a sturdy fence can protect the house from the wind and can help reduce your winter heating load. Shade trees planted on the south side of the house block the summer sun. Also, vines help keep a house cool in summer and warm in winter.
