1. Wrap Up Your Windows

Most heat escapes from glass windows and doors. To reduce this heat loss by as much as 80 percent, all you need to do is to purchase some bubble wrap; the type that is commonly used to protect fragile objects in parcels. Bubble wrap is inexpensive and can be purchased cheaply at DIY stores or via online retailers. First you need to cut the bubble wrap to fit the inside of your window pane or glass door frame. Then fix it to the surface using a PVA glue spray. This method might not look particularly stylish, but it is easy, inexpensive and highly effective when the weather is bitterly cold. As it is transparent, the bubble wrap still lets the light in, although you will have to wait until the weather warms up to admire the view! It can easily be removed and the spray won't damage the glass - any residue can be easily wiped away. Read on to discover more easy and economical ways of insulating your home
