Awesome thermal curtains at CCAT.

For overall convenience, relevant information from different visual and procedural methods to building your own thermal curtains have been integrated to one page. The texts have been written by different people at different times but all with the similar objective of providing easy-to-follow directions to minimize your heat loss, save you in heating costs and give you a wonderful appropriate-technology project. The more detailed procedure, found below, will provide extended benefit for those who learn better with diagrams than with the following photos and descriptors.

If you live in frigid dorms or just need a quick fix to a cold apartment, house or attic check out Quick and Dirty Thermal Curtains.
