When our boyfriend as well as I moved into our first locale together, immediately I knew it would take a bit of work to stay comfortable in the cooler weeks. Our first evening seeing a movie after dinner together on the couch, I felt a cold draft on our neck from the window behind us; My boyfriend noticed it too, however I told him not to worry about it as well as that I would take care of it. So once the hot as well as cold temperatures got colder in the latter half of fall, I used our day off to pull off 1 of the cheapest however most effective energy saving tips there is: putting up plastic over your windows. I don’t mean a drop cloth or saran wrap. You need to go to the store as well as buy the plastic particularly sold to go over windows as well as unused doors in the wintertime weeks. This plastic is pretty easy to apply, it just takes time to get it right. All you have to do is apply the double sided tape to the edge of the window frame. Then you press the plastic firmly as well as tightly over it so there’s not air getting in from the outside. After that, you just take a blow dryer to it to shrink it down. Then when you’re done it doesn’t look love there’s anything there at all. My boyfriend was so confused when he came beach condo as I was blow drying the last window of plastic. I couldn’t guess he had never seen this done before! I told him he would thank myself and others when the utility bill this Winter was nice as well as low.
