What Kind of Window Insulation Do You Need to Prepare For?

Did you know that 25% or more of your household energy loss can be attributed to bad or poor window insulation? Fear not, there are ways you can keep the heat in your home and save energy and money.

But first, make sure that all your windows are properly caulked and you’ve sealed all the cracks. This only works around your window and not actual the window itself.

Consider using rubber weather sealing. It’s simple to install and requires a few strips to be cut on based on the dimensions of your window. It can however damage your paint and leave a sticky residue behind.

Another option is window insulation film. This includes using shrink-wrap and double-sided tape. Once the film is in place over the window you can use a hairdryer to shrink the film and smooth it into the creases. Using insulation film to keep your windows warm in the winter time can make them look cloudy.

You could also install cellular shades or hang curtains to help with drafts from your windows. These options can get pricey, but they do help in the long run.

If none of these options seem to work for you, you can always install new windows. Today’s window technology has advanced so much just in ten years.
