Winter is here and your house should be keeping you warm throughout the whole day and night. One of the most popular ways the air inside of your house escapes is through the draft holes in your windows. It is a natural tendency for your widows to move and for the insulation around it to unseal. Here are a couple ways to keep your home nice and cozy this winter.
Rubber Weather Window Sealing
You can buy strips of self-stick rubber weather sealing at a hardware store or online. Cut long strips down to fit your window dimensions, then peel and stick to the frame to close any gaps and keep out drafts. This tool is cheap and effective. But when peeling away the rubber strips, it could cause damage to the paint.
Window Insulation Film
These kits usually include plastic shrink film that is applied to the indoor window frame with double-stick tape, and then heated with a hair dryer to shrink the film and remove any wrinkles. The only con about this product is that it leaves a cloudy, shrink-wrapped look to your window.
Draft snakes are fabric tubes places on a windowsill or under a door to prevent cold air from creeping in. You can make on by sewing a tube of fabric to fit the width of your window and filling it with dried rice. This is a cheap and easy to make project.
