Keep Cold Air Out With Interior Storm Windows

Looking at keeping the cool air out while staying extra warm this holiday season? Or maybe you are looking to save a little money by being more energy efficient. Either way installing interior storm windows is a great way of insulating your home and lowering your heating bills. Here are a few additional benefits to consider:
  • Adds value to your overall home and will not impact the outside appearance of your home.
  • Preserves integrity of pre-existing windows. This is important to many home owners especially those that live in a historic home or a condominium.
  • More affordable than repairing or replacing current windows that are letting in cool air.
  • Easy to install and are available at your local hardware store.
Interior storm windows can range from inexpensive plastic sheets to more expensive multi season glass units. Glass storm windows offer better visibility and longevity then those that are plastic. However, plastic storm windows are better for those that live in apartments, condominiums, or are on a tight budget. Plus they still deliver cost savings and get the job done. Storm windows are available for most types of windows and are generally a better choice then exterior storm windows when it comes to creating a buffer zone. Here are a few reasons why:
  • Money, money, money. Exterior storm windows are much more expensive than interior storm windows. If you can afford exterior storm windows you might want to consider investing in new energy-efficient windows instead.
  • Interior storm windows are easier to install and remove then exterior storm windows.
  • Interior storm windows are also easier to keep clean and maintain since they are not fighting the outdoor elements like exterior storm windows.
