So What is a Low-e Storm Window?

Storm windows have been around for quite some time.  Traditionally, storm windows were either wood-framed windows that were installed over the existing window to protect the underlying wood window, or were bulky aluminum triple-track structures that were installed on the exterior of existing windows.  While not necessarily attractive, they performed a function.


Advancements in window technology led to the modern double-pane replacement window, which became a preferred option to the old style storm window.  But for many homeowners who appreciate the architectural beauty of a building’s original windows, the option of installing a vinyl replacement window that will need to be replaced in another 15 years just isn’t a good option.  They are not architecturally appropriate for many homes, and are certainly not a good investment when you consider the lifespan.

Low-e Storm window technology combines the advancements of state-of-the-art replacement windows into improved design storm window systems.  The result:  A homeowner can add an interior or exterior low-e storm window to achieve the same performance in terms of energy savings and comfort that would be achieved with a new replacement window.  But in this case, they keep their original windows.  This is almost always a much smarter investment than replacement, because a low-e storm window has a substantially longer life span than a replacement window.

Some manufacturers offer architectural low-e storm windows, which combines the functional performance of low-e storm windows with the design features that make these products a sure bet for historic properties, or estate properties where replacing the buildings original windows with plastic replacements just will not fly.
