Sharing how to add window insulation film for winter! There are many winter window insulation kits on the market and today I am reviewing the Duck Max Strength that was honestly, very easy to install. I recently had the opportunity to try out a new product (well new to me) called Duck® Max Strength® Brand Rolled Window Insulation Kits that is available at your local Walmart store.

Depending on what part of the country you live, the colder temperatures are coming and we are actually bracing for snow here in Massachusetts the next couple days!

One of the biggest issues that comes with the colder weather, is keeping the inside of your home warm without breaking the bank.

Does window insulation really work? 

Yes! I found that the window insulation film kit provided great coverage and sealed the edges of the window.

Be sure to apply the Duck shrink film to a clean dry surface, such as painted or finished wood, aluminum or vinyl.

I started by applying the adhesive tape in the kit to the window trim.

Simply roll on the shrink film and cut off the excess edges with scissors.

You don’t even need to measure!

The film is rolled specifically in sections so you just need to roll the film across and once you get to the end of the window, the 4 section will unroll. So easy!

The rolled shrink insulation film is puncture-resistant and is two times thicker than standard window kits providing an added barrier between the outdoor air and your home’s inside.

I have never used a window insulation kit before and I was very impressed with how easy the product was to use.

The Duck shrink film is crystal clear allowing great visibility.

I can remember as a kid, my grandfather cutting big clear plastic trash bags and taping them over his windows in the basement to keep the cold draft to a minimum. I remember trying to look out the window and couldn’t see a thing! Technology and products have come a long way since 40 years ago and I am sure my grandfather would have loved a product like this! Never mind, being able to purchase at his favorite retailer, Walmart ;).

The Duck Heavy Duty Window Kit is also pet friendly.

Do you guys remember my grandfather’s cat, Baby? She approves! When my grandfather had to go live at the nursing home prior to passing away, we of course kept Baby. She is doing great and you wouldn’t know it but she did lose 5 lbs. She is so big!

One thing I was curious about was whether or not it would leave a residue once removed. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it came off and there was no residue.

Whether your windows are old or new, a window that allows cold air come through is not good! If you have a drafty window, give the Duck Brand Rolled Window Kit a try and be sure to check out their Weatherization Project Selector.
