Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adam Really Does Work, take your time installing it!
We live in a 95 year old home in Wichita Kansas. The weather here is bi-polar at times. I read the reviews on here before I purchased this kit. I learned that the best way to make sure the tape adheres to the frame is to obviously clean the frame beforehand, but also to use a blow dryer to heat the tape up as you're applying the tape....it'll adhere better to the surface.I also overlapped the corners and rubbed the tape with a dry cloth while blowdrying it to the surface....it really Does help! It took me nearly 30 minutes per window, it was definitely worth it! We noticed that our living room stays warmer for longer periods and that the Furnace doesn't kick on nearly as much.If you do this right, it'll last. The temps in the house overall stay warmer for longer. We've also sealed the windows in our bedroom and noticed a HUGE difference! Definitely a good buy!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Missdebbie They cheapened up since last year...
Bought the same kit last winter so I thought I would rebuy this year. but it was my mistake the plastic is much thinner and the double sided tape does not stick. I assume to cut costs to make more profit. If you do need something for your windows I sudgest you research online and buy a different brand so you don't end up frustrated the next morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Works great, has removal issues
I used this to insulate 10 old windows (with weights) with drafty triple track storm windows. Once you get the hang of it, they go on easily and are completely invisible. They really cut drafts. I used a painters heat gun to shrink the plastic, a hair dryer didn't work.
At end of season, the double stick tape pulled off some paint on the sills and trim and left some adhesive residue. Frost King says to remove the residue with a hair dryer and rubbing alcohol. This was ineffective. I used some Fineline 919 Wax and Grease Remover and it took the glue off like magic. This solvent is a prep and cleaner for auto refinishing so it should be available at better autoparts stores.

The plastic is fine but the tape won't stick and you can't get the backing off the tape so it's nearly a worthless product.

The film is great but the tape is terrible. Buy 3M instead. it'll hold a lot better!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Denny Works as advertised
I bought the 9 pack a few weeks ago and covered 3 large windows in my house. Alot of the reviews complain about the tape. I can only speak for my experience - my windows have wooden frames and the tape had no problem adhering. It took me about 1 window to get the hang of working with the tape. I waited to write my review to see if I would experience "the tape doesnt last and the plastic falls down". No such problem. I will definitely buy this product next season as well. On windy days (like today), you can hear the plastic crinkle slightly as the wind blows against the window. Its amazing how much my windows were letting in. I was hoping to see a reduction in humidity, but it doesnt appear that this product helped with my high humidity conditions. Nevertheless, no complaints here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FKY27 Best way to easly steal windows for winter!
This stuff is great!! I use it for many different applications. For those using this for windows I would recommend using 2 rows of the double sided tape to help prevent the plastic layer from peeling off. This insulation kit helps me save hundreds every year and is pretty durable.
