Question by mikki9887: Insulating walls for an apartment dweller?
My apartment building must have been built in the 1960s or so. I doubt there is much insulation in the walls. I put window film on the windows as they leak so much air it is pathetic. Any ideas on what to do with the walls? I was wondering if I purchased sheets of the foam insulation, for example at Home Depot – you know the thin blue foam sheets – and put them up on the inside of the exterior walls – would that help any? My desk is next to an exterior wall and there is LITERALLY a cold draft coming off the wall –
I have to pay for heat but apartment management won’t let me install a programmable thermostat and obviously they are not going to do anything about the insulation or the windows.
Any thoughts would be most appreciated!

I hate to say it but MOVE!
Or purchase your own condo or home?
When you rent you are stuck to what the landlord will and wont let you do! Nothing you can do but move when the lease ends!
