Wrap It

26 January 2010

Yikes, colder weather has come back with a vengeance.   I think plastic window kits get a bad rap (no pun intended), but they can make a difference when it comes to comfort in your home.  Because glass has very low thermal resistance  (also known as R-value), heat very easily transfers through.  So when you get close to those cold windows, they are literally sucking the heat our of your body! Anything you can do to add an extra layer will help you and your family feel more comfortable as we weather these harrowing winter weeks.

Drapes and curtains can certainly do the job, but if you want to keep warm and still use some of the little natural light we get, you can’t go wrong with plastic window kits!  Once installed they are nearly invisible and are very affordable.  Check out the Action Guide on the Minnesota Energy Challenge for more information – and stay warm!
