How to winterize your windows
If your home is like mine, in the winter months you see a spike in your heating bill. To cut costs, I keep heat on very conservatively. When my family is home or I have company I keep my thermostat at 63 degrees. At bedtime, I turn it down to 58 degrees and we sleep with extra covers and warm night clothes. I'd like to reduce my costs even further and decided that this year I'd winterize my windows. With all of the windows in my home winterized, it is said that I can save up to $190.00 in heating bills with a simple investment of $11.50! I quickly took a trip to Walmart and purchased the Duck Window kit.
The kit comes with 2 films of plastic and double sided tape. I simply needed a tape measure, scissors, rubbing alcohol and a blowdryer to complete my project. I started by cleaning the edges around the window with rubbing alcohol. This is a suggested step to help the tape adhere to the surface.
Have you winterized your windows? Have you seen an improvement in your heating bill?
