Did this video help you?

Andreas748: damn, this girl is pretty smart....

Robert Christ: If I ever have a home built out here in Cutter, NM you can bet I"m puttin a ton of windows on the south side. I'm lazy though needs to be a way to get the curtains to open and close automatically.

Joshua TenEyck: She looks pissed.

omarshinken: your freaked if you live in Norway

bridgeboy513: You should patent that heating system. U will B Rich

ebsen raptzski: I took the paneling off my living room, increased the studs to 2 x 4 and insulated with R11 which was better then I started with.

TalksWithDirt: I heat my house with a home built RBMK-1000. Free heat for 30 years for you and your closest neighbors. No need for complex computers to run them either.

mack bolan: nice 

Stephen Williams: I LOVE IT. SMART AND SIMPLE LIVING IS THE WAY TO GO.

click411: I never would have thought of that : Note to self: Open Curtains make room warmer. BRILLIANT

Pork Charsui: There aint no sun in January....

Tipsy Sailor: She probably lives in San Diego.

larby69: Un insulated and 6 degree Fahrenheit .... And the furnace isn't needed... Ha Ha .. You're dreaming... 

DJ H: Thank you so much for sharing! I wish my family could understand with me the simplicity of this but they are not in the same mindset and don't care about our $200/month heating/electric bills! They have now left me so I can how bunker down and hopefully find someone like-minded to enjoy life with!

Kathy Kautzman: Intelligent choices.

michael wolfe: Thank you for this video. We did this today at our apartment, and most of the day it was warm. thanks again!

Becky Ezra: i did it as well at home, even more saving is to make those curtains on each entrance of each room of the house, it even will reduce your bill !! the netherlands

Bad Dog: Come show me how to get a $45 heating bill on this old farmhouse and ill kiss your ass. LOL. Of course everyone out here gets screwed with an avg $300 month electric bill. No kidding. And no.......i'm not moving to town where all the morons live. I'd go without before that happened.

Peter Piper: Holy Smokes! Try doing that in Minnesota.... Brrrrrrrrrrr!

S Tallerico: We moved to an older farmhouse last year, which I adore, but quickly had to learn these tricks, mostly in the summer for us. It makes a HUGE difference. I love my windows open, but I close all the blinds on the east side in the morning. Mid-afternoon, i open those and close the west side. I also try to keep the cool air from overnight in as long as possible without opening the doors too much in the morning. If the doors are not left open too much, it could stay cool in here all day just from doing this, even in 90-degree temps. Funny I never thought of it until moving here 

000peachy: we don't get enough sun in Cleveland to do this, lol, very smart idea though

The Love Power Goddess: This is just too damn simple! 

Linda Houck: Do you deal with much condensation with insulation on the window? I live in a moist part of the country and anything against my windows gets soaked.

Fox Kitten: Good information... but WHAT is that white vehicle in the background at 2:42???? Looks like something we could really use! Thank you.

Liza McCabe: So what if it's cloudy, or you don't have east west facing Windows?

kewbreeze4: Thanks Wendy, good info, also you people in the colder parts may also want to look into making yourself a rocket mass heater.

Jim Brown: Nice lady, and practical!

Patrick Boehner: If you renovated the whole house why didn't you insulate the house?

bfinfinity: I've done the same thing for years, and it's really good that you went to all the trouble to make the video and show those who just haven't figured it out yet...or some who never would. This is a good example of sharing something that really works and can really help some save money and live more comfortably with less expense. Thank you!

wyzyrddrummer: If you can put some insulation in your walls either the blow kind where you might drill a hole in the inner wall and push it in, or you can do what I did. I went to a Lowes or Home Depot and bought 8' x 4' x 1" sheets of insulation (just for one room) and that helped significantly with keeping the hot summer out and the cold winter out as well. Also, I bought some really thick insulation and beefed up the insulation below the flooring. For the windows you can do several things. You can get some spray foam insulation and go around the perimeter of the window the sections that don't move that helps as well.

kazuza9: very smart and easy way, i was thinking about using black curtains,

DrCognitive: I could see this working if your house was laid out just like hers, but where we live we have a patio and standard window facing north and two bedroom windows facing east. We also get very little sun here in MN during the winter. Lots of overcast days. However, our heating bill is only about $80 a month... Oh, and we are hitting -30F air temp tonight...a little bit colder here. LOL

nachod1282: The only problem to what she demonstrates is: New windows with energy efficient glass do not provide any passive solar heat, you don't feel any warmth coming thru the glass in the winter no matter how much the sun shines. With old windows we did not need so much heating like now, with new replacement windows. After all, is the new energy efficient glass really so energy efficient?

Hagfan789: You bring that setup you use here to Northern WI & you'll have icicles hanging off your nose before you finish breakfast. Jack Frost can be Brutal up in these parts..even with good winders & insulation..A fer effort tho..

John D: Great idea on the aluminum bubble wrap! I price some rolls from Lowes. Where did you buy yours?

Jumpoff A: Thank-you for confirming what I have been telling my wife and kids for years. Perhaps they will listen now.

YourUncleScroatie: Aluminum mini blinds,flat black spray paint and a black shower curtain...

Mercedes Adames: Ii also live in a mobile home so I want you to know how much I truly appreciate this video. Blessings ....Mercedes

walkertongdee: smart

marthale7: I am considering using the mylar emergency blankets as well as they are cheap and really reflect the heat. Two more tricks -> 1) get a vine growing on your roof it will stop the roof from heating up in the summer. 2) put a water sprinkler on your roof and run for 15 min every 2 hours this greatly lowers the heat stored on the roof.

marthale7: Another trick is to use clear bubble wrap in the windows that do not provide heat. It blocks the loss of heat but lets light in. Thanks for sharing. I used to live in a 1967 trailer upgraded to a 2001. I also have another trick that I use during the summer, I have a white tarp I put on the OUTSIDE of the window about 5 inches away from the window itself. this creates a reflective and a air barrier that stop the heat from ever entering the room. Makes a huge difference.

Sonny Lee: Sweet! A simple solution for a Complex Situation! Thanks

lekkki1: Hi Mikey, Hi Wendy, did you guys insulate the exterior of the home? With like a spray-on stucco? I am gong to assume that you did not, but want to make sure. Fantastic video, thanks for the info.

Mercedes Adames: What a wonderful video thank you for sharing ..you say bubble wrap.?? How to attach or put up I am just not sure. Pleae advise.. Thank you so much. I need the help. Mercedes

TheHolySpirit: Great! Some of those windows look perfect for fitting very cheap acrylic secondary glazing panels. I halved my heating bills with it. The panels are also completely removable in summer if you clip it on with Magnetic Glazing Tape.

Mercedes Adames: where can I buy the glazing panels. That sounds great. I need to lower my bills. just didn't know how to?? Mercedes in Las Vegas Nevada

TheHolySpirit: I live in the UK, but I just googled "Acrylic glazing panels" and I found some at a local builder's merchant, who even cut them to the exact size I needed. I then bought the self adhesive "magenetic glazing tape" from ebay. I tried out the whole concept in a small room with just one window and once I realised it worked so well I gradually did one window at a time until they were all done. I did it a few years ago when the outside temperature here dropped to -10C (14F) so was really pleased!

CheapGeek: Easy, and simple makes this awesome! Plus it works.. Very Nice.

barrel89: And if you put a house made of glass in your garden, you can grow plants for longer, and keep them warmer!
