To install window insulation film, choose a day with the right type of weather, clean the window, make the film solution, apply the film and cut off the excess. Use a squeegee to remove air bubbles and apply more solution.
- Gather your supplies
Purchase your choice of window film insulation. Pick up a spray bottle, distilled water, dish soap, a squeegee, window cleaner, paper towels and a utility knife.
- Choose the right day
Perform the installation of insulated window film on a day when the temperature is above freezing but the sun is not shining. This prevents the solution from freezing or evaporating.
- Clean the window
Wash the window with window cleaner and paper towels. Allow the window to dry completely before moving forward.
- Mix the solution
Pour some distilled water into the spray bottle and mix in a little dish soap.
- Apply the film
Spray the window with the soap and water mixture and then apply the film.
- Cut off the excess film
Use the utility knife to cut off extra film. Prevent unevenness by holding the film still as you’re cutting it.
- Remove air bubbles
Run the squeegee over the film to remove all the air bubbles. Some of the solution may run out on the sides of the film.
- Add more solution
Spray the film with a little more soap and water solution. And allow it to dry.
