How to Fix Drafty Windows
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Duck Brand. All opinions are 100% mine.
It never fails. Every cold season when the temperature outside drops, the house becomes a mixture of hot and cold inside. Each room is different, depending on where thee windows are placed throughout the house and some are downright FREEZING.
Unfortunately, the draftiest of these rooms are the main living areas, like the kitchen and living room. Since my family spends most of our time in these areas, it can definitely get uncomfortable in the Fall and Winter seasons.
Solutions that I’ve tried in the past include rolling up towels around the windows to block drafts, cranking up the heater (which ramps up my natural gas bill), or piling on layers of clothing to the point of being obnoxious. None of these are the most ideal remedies.
BUT…I believe that I have finally found an easy and convenient fix.
Designed to fit around all types of windows in your home, a Duck Max Strength Roll-On Window Kit from Walmart block drafts and air leaks that can lead to high heating costs during cold weather months.
The best part? The only tools you’ll need are a hairdryer and a pair of scissors.
Next is simply following the easy steps to install:
- Clean the window frame to remove excess dust.
- Roll on the pre-taped film to the top edge of the window. Then, cut the film to size.
- Apply the tape to the window sides and bottom, and remove the tape liner.
- Next, unfold the film and press firmly onto the tape.
- Shrink the film with a hairdryer to remove any wrinkles. Cut off any excess film with scissors.
- Finally, check to make sure there is a tight fit between your window and the shrink film.
If you are a visual learner, watch the how-to video below:
I tested the Duck® Brand Max Strength Roll-On Window Kit, with an even thicker film making installation even easier than before, on my drafty kitchen windows.
The Max Strength film is puncture resistant, which is absolutely necessary for a home with children or pets.
The installation process was painless and took around 10-15 minutes from start to finish.
Now I have a nice, tight seal around these drafty windows!
