Insulating Window
Glass Instructions



To save energy, apply
bubble wrap to window
glass.

The plastic has air pockets
that insulate window glass,
while allowing light to pass
through.

On bathroom windows insulate
the entire window as you do
not need to see clearly through
these windows.

On other windows, leave a
strip clear to the side,
where you can look out.
(see image).

Glass is a very poor insulator,
you can prove this by simply
touching the glass with your
finger to feel the cold.

Cold glass create cold drafts,
warm air inside the home
contacts the cold glass,
cooling the air in the home.

This action of circulating cold
air inside the home flows
ove the glass, and through
the home, robbing the
house of heat.


How to Apply
Bubble Wrap



To make a solution to hold
the bubble wrap to the glass
take one cup of white vinegar,
add two cups of hot water.
Apply 10 drops of Lavender
essential oil
(purchased from a heath
food store).
This is optional.

Shake well and pour into
a pump spray bottle
and spray the entire
glass area.

This mixture prevents
mold from developing.

Cut the bubble wrap to
size, clean the glass,
spray the water mixture
onto the glass and apply
bubble wrap with the flat,
smooth side of the
bubble-wrap towards the
glass.

Smooth onto glass with
your hand.

The water vinegar mixture
will cause the bubble-wrap
to stick to the glass.

The bubble wrap can be
removed easily at any
time.

Tip



Use the left over spray to
clean fridges and
counter-tops.
The bubble-wrap can be
left in place year round,
as it help keep the heat
out on hot summer days,
and keeps the heat in,
on cold winter days.

Bubble wrap can be
purchased at most office
supply stores or places
like Staples.

The rolls comes in
different sizes.


Exhaust Fans Rob
Heat from the Home



Bathroom and kitchen
exhaust fans work by
expelling warm air from
the house.

Cold outside air enters
the home through a cold
air vent to the basement,
to replace the inside warm
air that left the home.

The outside cold air
entering the house is
winter temperature.

In winter, running an
exhaust fan for a couple
of hours can entirely
deplete the warm air
inside the house.

The furnace re-warms
the air inside the house,
this costs you money.

Run the fans for short
periods of time only as
needed, this saves
energy costs.
