Window film is an inexpensive alternative for reducing cold drafts from entering through your windows. Window frame or glass damage can contribute to cold air entering your home and window film is a perfect temporary solution.
What is Window Film?
A plastic of different thicknesses that is measured out and cut to fit over a complete window and frame. Adhesive such as tape or glue is used to create a temporary bond that fits around the window frame preventing anything from entering through the window such as cold air, bugs etc.
Designed for Indoor Use
For optimal performance use film on the inside window frames and doors. Theoretically this can also be used on the outside exterior of windows or both inside and outside.
Shrink Wrap Seal
Use a blow dryer and follow instructions of standard shrink kits in order to solidify a tighter bond around window frames.
Stores That Carry Window Film
Plastic film is a cheap way to temperately keep out drafts. Ideal for windows and doors that are under construction or in need of heavy repair. Sealing your window frames in plastic can reduce heat loss and therefore lowers energy consumption.
Drawbacks: Plastic is temporary and makes your windows inaccessible. You will need to remove and re-due the process if you need window access. NOT aesthetically pleasing.
Other Window Film Types Include:
Decorative plastic sheets depicting patters or pictures that are measured and cut out to the exact size of the widow glass. They are then applied in most cases with water and stick to the window. Stained glass effects can be achieved along with 1000’s of other patterns. This type of window film does not reduce cold air from entering and is for cosmetic purposes only.
