According to the Energy Saving Trust 18% of heat loss in the home is through windows, so by fitting draught proofing you will not only feel more comfortable but you will also save money.
An average window or door will cost around £10 to draught proof if you install the products yourself.
Tip: A thick stiff piece of cardboard can be a useful aid to protect windows when hammering
