Ranjhacom: Awesome Idea of Bubble Wrapping Window Shade...7 Stars for that specific idea...
Mazda rx7: not possible unless shes using a wood stove with free wood
Brian Tumor: Holy crap, I found a roll of that stuff somewhere and put it on my windows in the basement. It is awesome. I had to put plastic, wrapping tape around the edges to keep the glass from sucking heat around it though, but it is definitely worth putting on unnecessary windows since windows have been shown through thermal scanning of buildings to be the most common offenders for heat loss (missing/open windows and open doors are of course much worse, hahaha). Actually, aluminum foil would work, but it would have to be glued to a quarter inch layer of Styrofoam to prevent convection loss of heat in the winter and sunlight-driven heat in the summer, because as you well know, a window with the sun beaming in during the summer will heat a trailer to over 100 easily -- not too comfy. In the summer I also placed a large fan (pointing out, which is much more efficient for fans) in a window at the hotter end of the trailer during the summer, then turned it on in the evening to expel the hot, stale air of the day and bringing in fresh cooler evening air from open windows on the opposite, cooler end. In the morning I'd turn off the fan and close all windows so the cool air would remain to keep the trailer cool until the afternoon some time, when again you can turn it on low and enjoy a slightly cooler breeze or, just use the ac to keep temps down until the same routine can be done that evening. Additionally, for less than $100, you can get a large canister of white roof sealer which not only seals the roof from leaks, but also reflects the heat of summer. The problem most people have with any such methods is they prefer to be lazy rather than proactive, and laziness in this case can cost you money, and cause health issues since you're not getting fresh air often enough. Great advice.
Kathryn McClain: Holy Scrap! That's sofa king cool
Adam Coleman: Holy Scrap! That's sofa king cool
Harold Hart: put some pop cans up on the south facing and heat the house - also use the poor man's candle & flower pot heater at night.
S. McCloy: Spray paint some 2 liter bottles or laundry soap bottles black and set them on the window sill the sun will warm the bottles you can bring them to other parts of the house and keep them warm or take the bottles and set them in your bed or at your feet. It takes a lot longer for water to change temp some people have taken fish tanks and placed them in the window like that? I use my heating pad on my back when I am in the recliner that keeps your core temp warm. You can get a back brace the kind they use on jobs where you do heavy lifting and use it to hold a heating pad to your back and this too can be plugged in say if you are in the kitchen washing dishes or preparing food? I shared this idea with a guy that works in the cold a lot he gets a break and he can plug in when he goes inside. Great little trick for folks that have to deal with a lot of cold. For your hands if you are outside a lot you can warm some potatoes oven or microwave oven place them in your pockets and wrap them in foil you can place your hands in your pocket and get them warmer than if you didn't have them there. Change out the taters time to time eventually you have cooked taters to eat that will warm you too.
tinki moon: U should try the pot great method, would ke u warmer than just the sun.
Wink Punk: thank you for nothing
Tiffany Boone: Will not work for city dwellers, obviously. But thanks for sharing!
dreamingcode: I bet she just deals with the cold in the house.
griseum: you really don't know what "cold" is. trust me.
Sherry Hewins: I'm thinking you live in a pretty mild climate. When we were in our trailer, similar vintage, with the light insulation that came stock in the trailer, we used these same tricks. It was not too bad in the day, but at night, when the temps dropped to 11° outside, we were hard pressed to keep a hot enough fire in the wood stove to make it bearable in the trailer.
ozarkdaredevils: very pretty lady..
blackops productions: wtf u live in a trailer I live in a 4 floor house the only reason im watching this is because I need to heat my game room
