My landlord’s going to replace my crappy 50+ year old windows when spring rolls around. Problem is, of course, we’ve just hit our first cold snap (32 is our daily high).
So I’m putting up plastic over the inside of our windows. Would it be better to put the plastic right against the window, or leave a 2-3 inch gap between the window and plastic?
I’m guessing that leaving a little space would be best, since it would provide a small barrier made up 50’ish degree air (cold outside air + heated inside air). Of course, I could totally be overlooking something as well. We have blinds on all the windows, so the plastic doesn’t really present an eye-sore problem in either position.
