Forget the sticky stuff! I saved $700 in heating last winter by making interior storm windows for my plaster-framed, aluminum windows that no sticky stuff in the world will stick to. Simply buy plastic sheeting on the roll and insert instead of screening in the metal screen window strips. You'll need the metal strips, the plastic cording to press the sheeting in, and the little roller gizmo. About $200 for nine 3-1/2 x 5' windows. Had to use one extra strip in the middle for bracing-just stuck in. Looks nice, and if you get the plastic just right, it's nearly invisible. Used plastic weather stripping tucked into gaps around edge to hold in place. Eliminates condensation, too. Hope lots of people see this and are able to lower their bills, too!
