Plexiglass Reduces Heating Bill
When George Marley bought a drafty old 12-room farmhouse with no storm windows, one of the first things he needed to do was find a way to reduce heating bills.
  A carpenter recommended putting plexiglass over the windows as an inexpensive, immediate solution.
  The idea worked, reducing Marley's heating bills in half. To let outside air in, he just loosens the bottom screws and bends the sheet, putting a piece of wood between the plexiglass and window.
  Marley points out that the plexiglass is a lot tougher than the clear plastic covers people often use. And it's clear, unlike heavier gauge plastic.
  Now, he's slowly replacing each piece of plexiglass with conventional self-storing storm windows.
