Odd that considering they are the ones that complain about the cold
draft across the floor from the cold air falling off the windows. I
tuck the lined curtains behind the radiator, makes one heck of a
difference to the room. When you open the curtains you can feel the
cold air behind them pour out.
Also if the heating is on the rising warm air is guided into the room
not into and trapped in the window reveal. It will come out at the
top but it is restricted and you have really warm air next to the
cold glass. Unless you have nice deep reveals and have a second set
of curtains right next to the window.
