What You’ll Need to Insulate Your Windows:

  • Window insulation shrink kit
  • Bubble wrap
  • Hair dryer
  • Scissors

How to Insulate Your Windows:

Step 1

Apply the double-sided tape around the edges of the window (top, bottom, left, and right), then apply a second layer just above and to the side of the first layer, and let that sit for about 10 to 15 minutes to allow the tape to get tacky. After a few minutes, remove the first layer closest to the window, make sure to remove the backing of the double-sided tape, apply your bubble wrap as shown in the video, and trim the sides using scissors.

Step 2

You can also use packing tape to secure any loose sections of the bubble wrap, then remove the second layer of double-sided tape making sure to remove just the backing paper. Apply the window film over that layer of double-sided tape, then make sure to leave a 1-inch excess on every side, and apply the film from top to bottom and then left to right. Press the film to the double-sided tape, then use a hair dryer to work the wrinkles out of the shrink wrap, and trim off any excess.
