Cold air coming through window, how to seal?
What is good to use to do that?
My windows are wooden and slide down.

Install a heavy curtain and move your bed!!! No seriously, the saran wrap thing made for windows should do the trick!!! However if this is your home (not renting) then you should seriously budget for new vynil widows, perferably casements.

A few things. Most have already been mentioned but I'll give them the +1.

Where do you buy this "Great Stuff"?Dustbunny wrote: ↑Nov 21st, 2007 10:36 amIf you own this house you might want to pull off the trim around the window (use the old smoke test to figure out if it's the whole window leaking or just one part and pull off the trim in that area). Then just buy some insulation or Great Stuff and fill any spaces between the window and framing and reinstall the trim. Also caulk/seal the exterior around the trim or anywhere else that could allow air through.
If the window is actually leaking between the window and it's jam those kits work well or you can just buy clear self adhesive tape to seal up those edges temporarily.
One caution with those plastic/tape kits...someone used them on this house and when I removed them they took the paint. I have no idea if they had been on too long or if the paint was just crap, but they left a mess.
