Energy-Efficient Interior Storm Windows

Homeowners are usually interested in lowering their energy expenses. However, they are not willing to pay large costs or sacrifice the appearance of their home to do so. Interior storm windows provide a compromise by effectively increasing the energy performance of a home by updating single-pane windows at significant cost savings over window replacement. They are accepted in historic and other homes whose owners want to retain the original windows or do not wish to alter the home's architecture with exterior storm windows. In addition to energy benefits, interior storm windows can improve sound resistance, decrease condensation, and reduce ultra-violet (UV) light damage to furnishings.
