Another suggestion is to update your windows ‘single pane windows are a lesser-spotted feature in most properties, though some period homes are yet to install double-glazing.

Not only will double-glazing make your house more energy-efficient, but it is also likely to ward off tempted thieves.’ Double glazed windows are as the article says are more common in homes than single glazed windows, however upgrading windows at any time is an expensive exercise.
