WE use the window kits also.  Mostly because it helps keep the moisture off of the windows.

Morning Lisa.

Baby it's cold outside.  Trouble is it is going to get colder.  I'll be off to the big box store later today and see if they have any of those.

Good morning Lisa. Now that I am back in Chicago, more important than when living in Florida! Thanks! Enjoy your day!

We recetnly replaced some vintage Pella windows from the 1960's in our home with new Pellas and the difference in utility cost is remarkable. Windows are a chief culprit for energy leaks.

Great reminder that windows can be a major source of energy leaks and how to minimize them, Lisa.

This is so important this time of year. For one thing, I don't like to be cold and and second I don't like high utility bills.

Thanks for the reminder, been so busy and kept my maintenance crew so busy that we have not even winterized our home yet.
