Use Christmas Door Foil on Windows to Reflect Summer Heat

Window tint film is very expensive. I had an inspiration; what I call, a "light bulb moment". Having lived in Florida for years, it was not uncommon to see windows covered with aluminum foil. I used my Christmas door foil, to cover my the windows. It is much more economical having bought it 50% off at an after Christmas sale. My a/c runs less and my electric bill is about 1/3 less than last year.

Good idea, however, I personally need a lot of daylight. :-)

I love in OH and I have been doing the foil trick for years. It works a little but, I wish I could foil the whole outside of my house. The walls get very hot as well. But, the foil in your windows can look a little trashy and cheap. I recommend buying dark curtains as well. xoxo
