Wanna learn how to weatherize windows with plastic film insulation? Okay, it doesn't sound sexy at all but will totally lower your heating bills.

Hey there, I'm Jeff with Home Repair Tutor and this video shows you some great tips on weatherizing old windows. This is especially important if you've got noticeable drafts that make your home chilly in the winter.

One of our awesome community members over Home Repair Tutor gave me a fantastic idea to couple with plastic film: use bubble wrap.

You can buy bubble wrap for $5 and apply it to the window then add the plastic film. It's double insulation. And a 9 pack of plastic film costs about $14.

Plus you don't need too many tools. Seriously, all I used were a pair of scissors, packing tape, and hair dryer.

You'll have to add two separate layers of double sided tape to your window (which comes with the film)....

When we bought our house in the 80s, it was double glazed except for a fairly big window on a landing half way up the stairs. On a cold day, if you sat on the bottom step, you could feel the cold air flowing down.

I bought this shrink film and stuck it on. It was tricky to get right, but I took the time and did a pretty good job with double sided tape all round and a hair dryer to shrink it. I also put some silica gel at the bottom to absorb any moisture that got trapped. It worked a treat and the bottom step is toasty warm these days.

From memory, the package said that it should be good for two or three years. That was twenty years ago and it is still there. The colour of the wood frame is not a match these days, but I can live with that.

I also put an old duvet over the trap door to the loft to stop the cold air coming down through the...

Yesterday we described our basement window situation and started the installation of the plastic insulating film. Today we continue to look at the insulation of this cheap and easy approach to reducing our home heating utility bills.

Once we had the two sided tape on all four sizes of the window frame, we then next measured the size of the area to be covered, using the measuring tape provided in the window insulation kit. After adding the recommended two inches per side as a safety measure, we then proceeded to roll out the needed plastic film and use the cutting device to create our desired insulating film.

Next, I started at the top (also recommended by the packaging instructions) and removed the cover of the two sided tape from the top window frame. Next I placed the plastic insulating film on the now exposed tape, ensuring as much as possible that the plastic was placed to cover the entire target area.

This was followed removing the tape overing...

RadioClear™

High Transparency, High Shielding Film

RadioClear is great for shielding radiofrequency when best transparency and shield performance are both important. Use it on windows, TV/computer screens, cellphones, digital displays, visors and more. Nearly 50 dB attenuation and highly conductive on one side (0.3 Ohm/sq). The polyester film contains a grid so fine that it is nearly impossible to see it. The grid is a diamond pattern which minimizes the Moirй effect in most applications. Amazing 77% light transmission too! Very easy to connect to ground on the conductive side. There is no adhesive on this material. 28 inch wide.

Installation

Cut the bubble wrap to the size of the window pane with scissors.

Spray a film of water on the window using a spray bottle.

Apply the bubble wrap while the window is still wet and press it into place.

The bubble side goes toward the glass.

To remove the bubble wrap, just pull it off starting from a corner. You can save it and use it for several years. It does not leave a mess or stains on the window glass.

If you have trouble with the bubble wrap separating from the window when the film dries, you can try adding a little Glycerin to the water, but this probably won't be necessary.

A few small pieces of double back tape can be helpful on really stubborn windows.

The bubblewrap can be installed in the fall, and removed in the spring. Judging by how mine...
