Curtains can also be used to keep drafts out of the home aside from keeping light out.

Weather-stripping is are another affordable and easy way to keep out drafts. It is self-adhesive strips that can easily be applied. However, weather-stripping won’t offer a permanent solution and can possibly cause damage to paint when removed.
