Question by liz w: Which works better to insulate a home–weatherstripping around window edges, or plastic on the window?
I have already filled the cracks around my windows with removable caulk weatherstripping to prepare for winter in northern Wisconsin. Should I have used plastic (the sheets of plastic that can be taped to the border of the window and dried with a hairdryer to shrink them to fit exactly)? Also, would it be helpful to do both? Please include your own personal experiences!

The weatherstripping cuts down on air infiltration.
Putting up the plastic sheets creates a dead air space
and will help a lot more.
