Terms of Service I’m no expert, but I have some observations. My house was built in 1979 and I am the original owner. When I remodeled, we replaced a few windows and doors. It was then I noticed that the gap around the windows and doors under the trim was never stuffed with insulation. So at least part of the air leakage was coming from under the trim. I carefully pulled the trim from the windows that were not replaced and filled the gap with Great Stuff (foam insulation in a can). Or you can stuff in some fiber glass insulation. Then the trim was tacked back. I know thermal pane windows are R3 rated as compared to wall insulation for walls is R11. However, new windows now have a confusing E rating these days. I suspect retailers use it as a selling point as “double your window insulation by making it a triple pane” at considerable cost to really make them R4.. Unless glass is broken, how can glass be drafty other than the cold coming through. The bubble wrap looks like a fine idea, except I believe it would even be better if the tape was put on the wall so the bubble wrap goes beyond the trim. What do you think? To check, I think it is a good time to start smoking again for a few hours. On a windy day, place the cigarette near the windows and see if the smoke blows away. To change the subject, I’ll say a few words about fall leaf clean up. I find the paper bags a pain to fill. My town, and I assume many others, will allow you to stuff leaves in your standard trash can on leaf pick up day. Lawn waste day is Monday and trash is Tuesday. I plastic bag my regular trash and stack it in the garage to keep it away from critters. I stake or weigh down a blue plastic tarp on the lawn and rake the leaves onto the tarp. Roll up the tarp and the leaves slide into the trash can easily. When the can is full, I rake more leaves on several more plastic tarps and roll them up like a burrito, hold them down with a brick until the next lawn waste pick up day comes again. No more bags, no more 30 gallon plastic cans to store and less work. Why can I use my bigger trash can for leaves? Because it has a gripper and the truck can mechanically lift the load. The town wants smaller leaf cans because they must be dumped in the truck by hand and that can lead to injuries. The final pick up is done with a lawn mower. I know there are mulching lawn mower. But I believe that will lead to lawn thatch to build up even faster. Or you will have a lawn that grows up above the sidewalk. I don’t know for sure, but I do have some lawn edges around here that are like a curb as they are so high. Another subject is crawl space insulation. The new standard is 4 inches above he rafters. When the house was new with no attic insulation, I had Sear blow it in. 30 years later if found out the insulation was blown into the eaves so there was no good air flow. So we installed baffles for 75 cents each between each roof support (what do you call them?). I raked back the insulation from the eaves. The baffles (Styrofoam kind of things to channel air from my eave to the roof vent) go from the eave to the peak of the roof. Then laid batt insulation paper side to the heated area and threw the loose insulation on top. The baffles keep my eaves free for good air flow. It is very hard to calculate savings as there are different thermal days and the price of natural gas goes up all the time. But the house is more comfortable in winter and summer.

How can we help you?* If you are careful about removing the plastic – if you carefully peel it off and fold it up at the end of the heating season – you can often reuse the plastic the next year. I usually found that each year when I removed the plastic I lost a little – due to tears, or the fact that I trimmed the plastic down to size after installing – so the plastic from the big windows for one year became the plastic for the medium-sized windows the next year, and the plastic from the medium sized windows progressed to the smaller windows.
