Storm windows can protect windows from damage due to prolonged exposure to sun, wind, acid rain, snow, ice and other harmful elements.
Storm Windows are Energy Efficient
We meet plenty of homeowners who think that their storm windows will last a lifetime, which is incorrect. Based on the harsh New England weather, the life of a storm window is anywhere from 12-20 years before they need to be replaced.
60% of your heat loss is based on an old storm or lack thereof and the other 40% heat loss is due to an interior window that’s not button-upped correctly.
With an old wood window there’s more air space between a storm window and wood window, approx. 3”, compared to the air space between two tightly squeezed panes of glass in a replacement thermos-pane window. By reaching these two goals you will achieve that all important R-value, the measurement of a materials resistant to heat flow.
Installing storm windows offer the insulating properties of replacement windows but for a fraction of the cost.
About Storm Windows
