shaikhymx: Great, great idea, just what I was looking for! thank you
littleblondemop: Wow, this is an old video, but it's something interesting to try. I don't want to cover the whole window in bubblewrap or that clear plastic wrap. Wonder if it's a stupid idea to just wrap bubblewrap around the edges of the window and the edge of the frame (based on the window you have and the age/set up) if then to cut the draft. I see an experiment in the works;).
Naomi Bass: anyone try this? does it work? were you able to lower your heat bill?
Jessi R (Jess): great idea! thanks
Alex Paulsen: Heaters are energy efficient, regardless of what you have.
100% of all energy is converted into HEAT. You're not producing sound, or light, or kinetic energy, or elastic energy, only heat. Therefore a heater is 100% efficient.
As for fan heaters, the fan does use some power, they supposedly transfer heat around the room better, but they also draw cold air across the heating elements, which results in the heater having to work harder or longer to keep up to temperature. I've had good results with the biggest possible oil column heater legally available, ignoring my power bill.
Zhou Chris: Works?
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!
Blobby Digital: could I just put bubblewrap in between my window and storm window?
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!
Saiga762x39mm AK47: freak, just get to the point.
59seank: Thanks for sharing this idea. I'm going to try it.
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.
