The Simple Cure for Drafty Windows!
We finished our attic space as my home office, and the window above my desk faces due west.
Since I live in Alabama, the summertime heat from this window was becoming unbearable. It was HOT in this room even though we took extra precautions and added foam insulation.
We installed anIndow window insert and immediately the temps started dropping. The shade-grade window insert filters out 90% of the UV-light
Before this window insert the temperature is 91 degrees at my desk.
After the shaded Indow window insert it's 75 degrees!
That is a 16 degree difference!
The insert was super easy to install- it's made of lightweight acrylic with a special rubber tubing around the edges to prevent drafts and air leaks. We just pushed the insert into the sill and adjusted the tubing a bit and it was installed.
There are D-rings for easy release of the window insert if you need to remove it.
The Standard window insert is totally transparent. Can you even tell it's there?
My attic-turned-office is a nice cool place to work now!
