John’s mom is one of the 2/3 of Americans living in a house that needs weatherization and prep for the winter. She is also someone who does everything for others without asking for help herself. She has been staying at John’s sisters in Alabama for a month to help them out. John and I wanted to help her out and surprise her by getting ready for winter with Duck® Brand
We went over the day before she was due to come home from Alabama and got her house weatherized and prepped for her to come home to. Sometimes it is little things that make a big difference like turning her heat up so it wasn’t super cold in her house when she got home.
Or bringing coffee and muffins over with some flowers knowing that she will be jet lagged and up super early in the morning.
The project that really made me happy was covering all of her windows with Duck® Brand Roll-On® Window Insulation which is so easy to apply to the windows. This is the third year at least that we have covered her windows and it has made such a difference in her comfort and power bill during the winter.
While we were getting the window insulation ready I realized I could see her blinds moving from the wind making it through the window! Can you imagine how cold that must be in the middle of a snowstorm or ice storm? We could tell a difference in the room temperature once we applied the window insulation. It was amazing the change before we even turned on her heat.
John and I were easily able to apply the Duck Brand window insulation together and get all of her windows covered. What I love is that you can’t really tell that the window insulation is over the windows. It is so clear that unless you bump off of it or try to open a window you wouldn’t know it was there.
Duck Brand even has a patented Roll-On® film comes with a pre-taped edge for easy roll-on application, requires no measuring and fits snugly to indoor window frames to provide an airtight seal. We used the Duck Brand window insulation that you tape the edges and then place the film over the tape. John’s mom’s windows are huge and kind of long so we wanted to make sure that we got them completely covered. One tip is to give yourself a bit of extra space on the ends when you measure out the film. It is much easier to trim the end then to have to recut and measure a whole new piece. lol! Trust me on this one….
Also if you are short like I am it helps to have a husband who is 6’3 who can reach up and get the top edges of high windows. John loves being able to reach right over my head and say oh is this what you were trying to reach. He is such a brat but I still love him. LOL!
John’s Mom was so happy when she came home and realized we had her house set up with the Duck® brand Roll-On® Window Insulation Kit. It makes such a big difference in her power bill and in her comfort all winter long. The couple of hours we spend getting her house winterized will pay off for months to come.
It was so easy to apply the Duck® brand Roll-On® Window Insulation Kit with just the two of us doing it. This is a quick and easy project that can truly make a big impact in your life! We highly suggest taking the time to use these products especially if you know your house is one of the 2/3 in the US that needs winterization!
