Bubble Wrap as Thermal and Acoustic Insulation in Windows

How to insulate windows from the cold.

Bubble plastic is also known for its good insulating properties, both heat and cold, both thermal and acoustic for soundproofing. It can reduce your heating bill this winter: a layer of bubble film can be the solution to thermally insulate the home and at the same time soundproof the window of an outside room.

Homemade thermal insulator:

  1. Cut a piece of bubble film the same size as the window to be insulated.
  2. Fill a spray bottle with water and apply a thin layer of water to the side of the glass that faces the interior of the home.
  3. Glue the cut out piece with the bubbles and place them facing outwards (towards you). Water, due to its binding properties, causes the paper to adhere to the window glass.
