This is just a quick fix I came up while sitting in my freezing house one cold day. I figured if you could keep warm using an emergency mylar blanket then it would be pretty effective at keeping heat from leaving through your windows. Mylar keeps 90% of your body heat from escaping when using it to stay warm and dry. It would be a good option if you were snowed in and stuck for an extended period of time. Obviously, it would be more efficient for personal use, but if you have an extra one to spare it should help reduce the loss of heat from your house!!!
Step 1: Parts
- Mylar emergency blanket
Step 2: Implementation
- Place the mylar securely against the window and tape in place.
- Make sure to not leave and openings between the mylar and the window seal (this will maximize the heat retention and keep the cold out).
That't it, quick and easy!!!!
