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.
Over the years we have been providing are customers with the leader in storm windows by Harvey Tru-Channel. A storm window is a self-contained unit that has a triple track design and removable panels for easy cleaning and a screen for air flow.
Harvey Tru-Channel storm windows are easy to operate and comes with twice as much weather stripping as other storm windows on the market.
For Historical or Non-Historical homes that have incorporated a turret in its design with bowed glass windows in all types of shapes and sizes, we offer the Allied Storm window.
To ensure that your storms will be energy efficient we install spring bronze weatherstripping to block air infiltration and greatly reduces noise pollution.
