Window Leaks

 Grist hosts a Q & A forum on things sustainable, here is a recent question on window efficiency…

I am lucky enough to have a home I really love and food to feed my family and my pets. However, the home has one major energy flaw: it is older and has huge, single-pane window/walls with aluminum frames, in two adjoining rooms. We currently are not able to replace them, and they lose heat rapidly. With this winter being a bit colder, is there anything that you can suggest we do, other than the window upgrades we cannot afford, to keep some warmth in the house?
