Create an Economical Reusable Storm Window This Winter with Bubblewrap

bubblewrap.jpg

You can make a reusable storm window out of bubble wrap, according to Lifehacker tip. If appearance is a concern, the bubble wrap can be confined to less visible windows, such as the bathroom.

The strategy is to attach the bubble wrap to a clothes hanger frame, instead of taping it into the window, to create a tight frame. When warm weather arrives, you can remove it and store it for use next cold season. Get the directions.

Save Up to $200 Annually on Energy Costs -- Seal Your Windows and Doors

windowscaulking.png

Soon daylight savings time ends, and it's time to batten down the hatches. Leave your high heating and cooling costs out in the cold and seal your windows and doors. Heed this tip from Bargaineering:

A $5 tube of caulk could save you as much as $200 annually. The average homeowner pays 10% more than they should for heat and air conditioning because of leaky windows. Take a stick of incense and move it around the perimeter of all windows and doors looking for air that's sneaking in. On the windows, go to work with the caulk. For the doors, purchase a weather sealing kit or other one of those infomercial contraptions that slide on to the bottom of your door.
