Learn how to seal windows for winter quickly and easily to block air drafts and leaks and save money on your heating bill. It’s easier than you think to winterize windows quickly.
Keeping warm during those cold winter months is crucial, but getting those high gas and electric bills is no fun! A winter window cover is a great way to keep some of that cold air from leaking in through your windows. Using window plastic for winter on your windows can help keep your family and home warm, all while saving you money on energy costs and increasing your home’s energy efficiency.
Today I’ll be showing you how to easily add a window cover for winter to your windows using Duck Max Strength Roll-On Window Kit from Walmart. With five kiddos, including a toddler whose crib is near two older inefficient windows, it is very important to me to keep the rooms in my house as warm and comfortable as possible (without running my heater 24/7).
I love how convenient this kit is! It has a thicker, puncture-resistant film, which makes it a great choice for homes with kids and pets. Each kit insulates three indoor 3′ x 5′ windows, so one box can go a long way.
How to Seal Windows for Winter Quickly and Easily
Preparing to winterize windows
Be sure that the window surfaces are clean and completely dry. Wipe over the surface with rubbing alcohol. Use a hair dryer directly on the mounting surface to remove any trapped moisture.
Step 1. Apply double-sided tape to the sides and bottom of the window and press firmly into place by rubbing with a thumb or clean dry cloth. Don’t remove the liner on the tape just yet.
Step 2. Start in the top left corner of the window and roll the pre-taped film to the top edge of the window molding. Cut the end. Be sure to leave a 2″ overhang on both the left and the right side.
Remove the printed liner from the tape. Unfold the film and lightly press into place on the tape.
Step 3. Use a hair dryer to shrink the film to insulate the window and to and remove any wrinkles. Lightly press the film to the tape while warming with the hair dryer to help improve the film adhesion. Trim any excess film with scissors. At the end of the season, remove the film and tape from windows.
Easy peasy! I’m so impressed with how well the product works and how smooth it became once I used the blow dryer. I was able to apply the window cover in just a few minutes. Now I have peace of mind as we head into the colder winter months knowing that I’ll be keeping the cold air from coming in the windows throughout the house and right next to my baby girl’s crib. Don’t you love how easy it is to seal windows for winter?
