Q: Hello! This will be our first winter in our new apartment and although I LOVE that our big windows in the front let in lots of light, I can already tell we are going to have an issue with our apartment being cold this winter. I am a renter and the windows do not appear to be old or in bad shape, so asking for them to be replaced is really not an option. Do you have any good ideas, Apartment Therapy readers? I would think there has to be newer technology in window insulation than the plastic my parents used back in the day...right?
