We live in a very old house and replacing all the windows is not in our budget right now. Several of them are drafty in the winter. We've tried those window sealing kits, but it's as thin as plastic wrap, looks bad, is easily torn and doesn't do much to help. We were looking at acrylic film and that's almost as pricey as replacement windows. Any frugal ways to seal windows that doesn't look bad, is cost efficient and actually works? Winter will be here before we know it!

And don't be shy with it. Use your fingers to squeeze as much as you can in the gaps. I used it on an outdoor crack in our cemented wall. dont have any more seepage from the monsoon rains.
we have radiant heat, but an old chimney in the attic and I never considered that could be an issue too, so I'll definitely look into that as well. thanks
Hot air rises (moves) not heat. Heat is energy. Heat is exchanged with cold. Radiant heat does heat a 'colder surface'. Consider a fireplace tube heat exchanger. Air in the tube gets hot, rises, escapes & cold air enters at the tube bottom. A dra
awesome, I'll look that up as well. :) thanks
awesome, and it doesn't damage paint? I have wood framed windows as well with several smaller panes in each window. I'm super excited that works so well :)
My wood frames are stained & varnished (not "painted") never been damage or marks 2 wood. It shouldn't damage paint. if adhesive remains, remove with undiluted rubing alcohol. Tape only ur LG (outer) panes.

Love the new picture, sexy Mama! I'll bet your house is warm enough for your husband!! LOL
lol , aw thanks Paula :) that totally made my day. I figured it was time for a modern picture of what I look like today not 6 years ago :)
Regular caulking didn't do a very good job and it's kind of hard to work with. I think I'll try the silicon version around the more problem areas. We have a lot of wind and our worst windows are large and south facing so light. Thanks.
