Older windows can be a huge waste of money,
. . . when you try to heat or cool your home,
. . . but, replacing windows can be exceptionally expensive.

Indoor storm window inserts with extremely:
. . . . . . Strong,
. . . . . . Clean, and
. . . . . . Clear film glazing is:
. . . . . . . . . More affordable than plexiglass,afer than glass.
. . . . . . . . . Stronger than heat shrink film, and
. . . . . . . . . Safer than glass.

Before I was lucky enough to have all of my windows replaced with the energy efficient kind (courtesy of #Obama
when he had that energy initiative going on in 2009) I used to cover the inside of my windows with plastic cut
to fit.
I'd buy the large roll of plastic. It was much thicker than that "film" junk they sell. I would wrap the edges in
cardboard & staple that to the window frame.
But since replacement (and more insulation to attic and walls) my savings are in the 60-75% range on gas heating
in winter.
