Storm Windows Are Cost-Effective
We’re always looking to save money and saving money on Energy bills is top on the list. So, if your goal is to reduce your energy- heating and cooling-bills, Inside Storm Windows may be a good solution especially if the primary windows are in good shape. Interior Storm Windows are a cost-effective way of reducing energy loss while preserving the look of a home’s existing windows.
What are Interior Storm Windows? interior storm windows, also called window inserts, attach to the inside of the window frame and offer greater convenience than exterior storm windows. They’re easier to install and remove; they require less maintenance because they’re not exposed to the elements; and, because they seal tightly to the primary window, they don’t allow indoor air flow to get to the primary window so condensation is greatly reduced. Inside storm windows are recommended for houses with more than one floor and are often the best choice for apartments due to their sound-proofing quality.
Exterior storm windows have been around for a very long time. While they saved energy, there were some challenges in using them. They’re difficult to install, especially on a home’s upper floors; they weren’t always attractive; and, there were frequent problems with condensation between the storm window and the primary window.
Windows are the most important character defining feature of a home. Why hide them behind an exterior storm window? From the outside of a house, interior storm windows are virtually undetectable; they don’t affect a home’s exterior appearance, and most designs are relatively unobtrusive and allow for more light to pass through. With these windows your beautiful original windows can shine in all their glory and still get the benefits of insulation and noise reduction.
Under the right circumstances, these windows are a great solution for consumers who want to cut their energy bills.
