Plastic Window Insulation Tips Plastic Window Insulation Tips

Plastic window insulation is a great way to keep your home warm during winter without racking up the bills. Here are a few tips if you are considering plastic window insulation.

Clean the Window

Cleaning the window before you begin applying the plastic insulation is the best way to make sure that the insulation stays as long as you want it to. If you try to attach it with dust or debris on the window it will most likely slip off in a few days. The best way to clean around the window where you will be pressing the plastic is with rubbing alcohol and water.

Cut More Plastic Than You Need

Cutting an inch or two more then you need of plastic is the best way to get a good fit. Once it is secured then you can cut around the edges.

Use a Hairdryer

Using a hairdryer is the best possible way to get the firmest hold on the plastic insulation. Once you have cut the plastic to the size of the window you can tape around the sides. Then you take a hair dryer on the highest heat setting and slowly work your way around the edges to make sure that it is secure.

These tips should help you with the plastic insulation installation! Good luck!
