    Default Window energy savings idea


    I paid to have these fancy special windows for energy conservation when
    remodeled, what a joke!! I ended up buying the thin silver bubble wrap
    type insulation, cut it bit bigger than window, and stuck them on with
    strong Velcro type fastener. The curtains do a nice job hiding the silver.

    (The Velcro was added after I realized we probably would have a few nice
    days. ) Knocked off at least $50.00 every month during the hot months,
    and that was before the huge raise in cost of our energy. Texas has at

    least 7 months of brutal hot weather a year. Harder to tell how much
    savings in winter, cause we don't have long periods of temperatures
    below freezing.
