5 Ways to Keep Your CT Windows Warm During the Winter

By Blue Corona Dev Dec 22, 2014

Keeping your home warm during the winter can be a daunting task. Many people are searching for ways to maintain a comfortable interior living space and doing so without spending tons of money. One huge tip is sealing your windows. Windows that are not sealed properly allow cold air into the home, let warm air out and cost you money. Heating your home for an entire winter can venture into the thousands, but sealing your CT windows can knock a chunk out of that cost. Here are 5 ways to seal your CT windows during the winter.

Rope Caulking

Put mortite inside all of the windows and along the cracks of the outside windows frames. You apply a thin line of caulk onto your CT windows and press into the cracks to seal. Rope caulking is available at any hardware stores for a reasonable price.


To those with double hung windows, visit the hardware store and purchase FELT weatherstripping. It’s an economical way for sealing windows and preventing drafts. Depending on your resources, you can nail, tack or staple the weatherstrip to the molding or windows.

Bubble Wrap

It’s certainly not the ideal solution and it’s amatuer from an aesthetic standpoint, but it works wonders for controlling heat loss. Slightly dampen your CT windows and apply cut to size pieces onto the glass. Cover the entire window, including the frame, with clear plastic and seal with easy-to-remove weather stripping.

Window Insulation Film

Window film is a product that solves multiple problems. It’s great for keeping out glare and protecting your privacy without blocking your view. Insulating film reflects heat during the summer season and retains up to 55% of your home’s heat in the winter. It also reduces fade damage to your home’s furnishings by blocking 99% of ultraviolet rays. Film provides comfort that you can feel, and savings you can see in your energy bills.


If your CT windows are extremely drafty and you need a short-term solution, try cutting plexiglass to the size of your window. Put the glass in place and drill screws in each corner of the window frame to hold it in. When the season’s change, remove the glass and store in a storage area.
