Storm Windows have been a traditional energy saver since the 19th century. They endure as an option for historic buildings because they add a layer of protection to and increase the performance of the primary window. This session will provide a comprehensive discussion of what storm windows can do; when they are best used; what the additional benefits beyond energy and preservation are; and how to calculate the cost benefit analysis of using them.

  • Describe the options that are available when selecting storm windows.
