If you haven’t felt the chill creeping in under your windows or door yet, rest assured that it is on the way! If you find yourself cranking up the thermostat a little more or shivering on your way to make a morning pot of coffee, it might be time to check if your windows are properly insulated!
Why Should You Insulate?
Windows are a beautiful way to let some light in and save on energy bills, but they aren’t doing much good during the winter if all they’re doing is letting cold air in. Single-pane windows are the most energy inefficient type of windows, and it can be costly and difficult to determine how to cut down your energy bill without shelling out major cash or violating your lease. Air can leave your home through your windows in a variety of ways, including the following:
- Air leaking in through gaps or cracks in the window frame
- Heat leaving your home through the window glass itself
- Heat leaving the warmth in an attempt to create equilibrium between it and the object on the other side (the freezing cold exterior of your home!)
Window Film for Insulating Your Home
Window film is an awesome way to insulate your home during the chilly winter months. It works by preventing drastic heat loss through your windows and, as a result, keeping your home warmer and keeping your energy bills lower. Window film that is professionally installed will block off the window and help to create a barrier between the glass and your home. The film will be sealed tightly against the window so that it won’t be in danger of falling off. It will not leave behind any adhesive or damage once you remove it, so window film is safe for use in rental properties.
