Lloyd B.: Question: what happens if you put the bubble wrap on the outside of the window? (the exterior)
Desmond Walker: this is marketable
Heather Grant: "If ur smoking..." wow, ppl still do that indoors in rentals? RUDE&gross!
RM Hutchins: I enjoyed your video. It was very helpful. Thank you!
Claudia Angelica Alvarez: que tal?
Blobby Digital: could I just put bubblewrap in between my window and storm window?
Susan Frady: Does this help with condensation on the windows??
Steve Pete: Objective: Keeping my house nice and cool. I live in Florida and have very old (circa late 1970's) windows that allow tremendous amounts of light and heat inside. I just put Dow sheets of insulation sheathing (that I got from Lowes) behind the windows, on the inside of the window and it has really helped. The sheathing is basically styrofoam that is about 3/4 of an inch thick and fits inside the window nicely. In my large living room window that faces south, I have three sheets of sheathing in there. Only problem so far is that when I bake something in the oven, the heat stays in the house and it gets pretty hot. But I'm looking forward to seeing a lower electric bill this summer. I watched all my cool air fly out the window last summer.
TheMsLady4Real: Doesn't work for us but will aluminum foil work? We live in Southwest Louisiana! St.Landry Parish! Can get very hot and humid or severely cold for us!!! Hope you have time to answer my questions! I have an old home 40 years + and at least 18+ windows single pane and I can literally see our money draining out but we can't afford to change them out because our house is sinking, needs a new roof, windows, heating and cooling system, new car, I just got laid off after working on same job for almost 10 years! Long story but if you can give me free advice ! Then I gladly learn that lesson and pay it forward! I don't have any money too buy any sales pitch for a product I know we can't afford! Will gladly teach anyone that needs help! Willing to do it for free to pay it forward!!! Sincererely !!!!!! Paula!!
TheMsLady4Real: Does this work with a white window film or aluminum foil, tinted car like window film? I don't exactly have loads of bubble wrap just laying around!
ron woodall: Love this idea. But I live in the Pacific Northwest where we have to worry about too much moisture building up in our windows and causing mold problems. Any idea how the spraying of water and then covering it will affect my situation out here worrying about mold or mildew?
Saiga762x39mm AK47: freak, just get to the point.
59seank: Thanks for sharing this idea. I'm going to try it.
936Dancer: If you already have double-paned windows, is there any advantage to also putting bubble wrap on the windows?
Defecio Stoglin: This is awesome stuff! Im gonna try this with my mother apartment because the windows are so old here.
Ann Juurinen: Thanks for this... a fine window treatment solution to those drafty apartment windows. Some people learn more easily with a visual. Keep going. Everyone needs better systems, this keeps more money in our pockets. Yay!
greengranny win: Check at furniture stores and big box stores. I used to work at both and I can tell you they get tons of the stuff and throw it away. If you ask the manager, I'm sure they would give it to you. I insulated all my windows and French doors from bubble wrap brought home after stocking the store (usually done at night, except for furniture stores).
greengranny win: Large bubble bubble wrap does work better.
greengranny win: Absolutely. I live in Deep South without a/c. I Open the bottom 1/3 of my windows and tape up the bottom 1/3 of bubble wrap. Leaving the window closed and bubble wrap down until after 9:30 am at my house kept the coolness leftover from overnight worked great. My house's long sides face east and west, so I have let trees grow on both sides also. Every little bit helps.
Johny40Se7en: That's good stuff, nice tips thanks alot. I doubt I would have thought of bubble wrap as an insulator, I know it's spongy but it's got air bubbles in it.
