Something I've done for many years is cover windows with aluminum foil. Of
course you can't do it with all your windows, but I always have some that

cheap and easy, just cover all the glass using masking tape on the seams and
edges, and placing the shiny side out. This blocks out soooo much heat. In
the Fall just pull it all off and let the warmth you want in the winter back
