Let’s face it: there’s always one drafty room in your home. No matter how many times you try and adjust your thermostat, that stray room still decides to create a temperature of its own. Although it could be due to a lack of insulation, there is the possibility it could be due to an old, non-insulated window. If you’re looking to insulate an old window in your home, then here are some budget-friendly solutions for you to try:
Looking to change up the appearance of your home, while adding an additional layer of warmth? Before you begin to remodel every single room, take a glance at insulated curtains! Appearing to look like traditional curtains, these panels of heat-inducing fabric will create the warmer environment that you’re seeking! When you install these insulated curtains, they will trap any sunlight coming through your window and emit the heat back into your home. It’s a great way to take control of the temperature in a drafty room — and will certainly save some money on your energy bills, too!
Draft Guard Snake
No, we’re not talking about an actual snake — but of a soft, easy-to-make draft guard! If your home has a set of old windows that are causing cold air to seep in, then this will be the perfect solution! To start, take three-to-four old, clean tube socks and cut the toe cap off at the end. Once this is complete, take fabric glue and attach the socks together to create a snake-like formation. After you finish this step, it’s time to fill your creation up with cotton or a warm, dense fiber — since this will help prevent cold air from seeping through a window crack. If you’re feeling extra crafty, you can take some googly eyes and glue them to one end — which will turn your warmth creation into a fun, festive window snake that your family is sure to love!
