In “Goodbye Again” John Denver sang, “There’s frosting on the window pane, and sorrow in your eyes….” I am sure John’s sweetheart may have been sad that he was leaving her for a while, but she was likely also saddened when she got the electric or gas bill because she was likely going to be paying a lot of money for heating their house only to have the heat leak out of the window that John hadn’t caulked or tinted (tinting works well in winter to keep the heat in and in the summer to keep the heat out), sealed around the edges with a rolled up a towel or gotten rid of the problem altogether by upgrading to new Energy Star rated windows (which are now eligible for a tax credit).
