I have a large room in a condominium which is hard to keep warm. Two of the four walls are exposed brick without any insulation (about 2 ft. thick). The building was once a bolier factory. The walls used to have insulation and wallboard covering them, but the previous owner took them down to expose the brick.

Is there a type of clear insulating paint I can use to help insulate the brick wall and lower my heating costs?

I suspect all useful answers will be to cover up the brick in some way. If you want to keep the brick walls from being permanently covered, you could use heavy cloth wall hangings/tapestries like they did in the old stone castles. Then you can take them down in warmer weather.
A question: do you own the condo, and therefore free to make any changes you want or is it a rental?
