I rent the current house, so I can't replace the very-old single pane windows.
The energy loss is apalling. I put a sunshade-material over them, which helps reduce the los of some cooling, but not much. The neighborhood brownshirts "prohibit" the use of window film such as bronze SolarStat, so the rental management company
I was thinking of getting plastic panels, sticking weatherstripping on one side, jamming that up against the outside on the wondows/windowframes and attaching it.
would that actually do anything to insulate them? In theory, it seems that it ought to create a dead air space, but is that actually how it'd work?
I'd look into a bronze-tint one that'd hopefully also reduce glare and reduce some of the infared exchange.
((It isn't, after all, window film...))
Thanks in advance,
