What is a Low-e Storm Window?


Advanced Window Technology . . . in a 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.  Low-e Storm Windows are designed with the same technology used in state-of-the-art replacement windows.  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 window replacement.  But in this case, you keep your 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.  The U.S. Department of Energy provides a good overview of low-e storm windows.

Consider your Options

Windows are a vitally important part of your home.  Replacing windows is always an expensive proposition, so you would be wise to consider your options and the economics very carefully.  There are a number of factors to consider, but energy savings and comfort improvement are two factors that are typically most critical to a homeowner considering a window improvement project.

If you are considering window improvement, and are evaluating the cost and benefits of updating your existing windows to improve efficiency vs. window replacement, consider the pros and cons offered by the U.S. Department of Energy: Update or Replace Windows.

Historic Window Preservation


Do you have a historic home, with beautiful windows?  Keep them!

Too often historic property owners debate the pros and cons of keeping their windows vs. replacing their windows.  The debate: keep your existing windows (that have probably been there for 100+ years) vs. an investment in modern replacement windows (that may last for 10 - 15 years).  Don't be fooled.  Check with our friends at Old House Guy:  The Truth About Old Windows.

The truth is, you can keep your original windows, and get all the benefits of a new window.

But don't take our word on it, consider:

Exterior Storm Windows


An option for the exterior of your existing windows.

Exterior low-e storm windows are added to the exterior of your existing windows to protect them from weathering, to improve the energy performance of your existing windows, and to improve comfort on the interior of your home.  Architectural low-e storm windows use low-e glass and design features that reduce air infiltration and reduce exterior noise; the benefits include a substantial improvement in occupant comfort and often a remarkable improvement in energy cost.  Equally important, architectural low-e storm windows are designed to integrate with your existing window, and can often be purchased in custom colors, giving exceptional performance while showcasing the beauty of your home's original windows.  The U.S. Department of Energy provides an overview of low-e storm window technology: Exterior Low-e Storm Windows.

Interior Storm Windows


Interior low-e storm windows are installed on the interior of your existing windows to improve the energy performance of your existing windows, and to improve comfort on the interior of your home.  Interior low-e storm windows use low-e glass and design features that reduce air infiltration and reduce exterior noise; the benefits include an improvement to occupant comfort and often a remarkable improvement in energy cost. 

Unlike storm panel inserts, which are often made of plastic materials which are prone to being scratched or damaged and need to be removed seasonally for fresh air ventilation, interior low-e storm windows are durable, remain in place all year long, and are designed to operate with your existing window.  Architectural interior low-e storm windows are low profile, available in custom colors, and are often nearly indistinguishable from the the existing window.
