There really is no “right” time to install storm windows. Whether it’s the dead of winter or the middle of summer, the time to install storm windows is when you notice a draft due to poor insulation or excessive energy bills.
Installing storm windows offer the insulating properties of replacement windows but for a fraction of the cost. Most contractors can install storm windows on top of existing windows for added insulation.
1. More Energy Efficiency
Reduced infiltration of outside air, helping your HVAC unit spend less energy to maintain desired temperature. Storm products are an added layer of protection against the elements.
2. Added Insulation
Added insulation will help you keep heat inside during winter and out in the summer! How? The added air space between primary windows and storm windows makes it harder for air to pass through.
3. Amp Up The Exterior Appearance
Harvey Building Products’ storm windows come in a variety of exterior colors, making it easy to complement the color of your home. No longer are the only options to have a drafty house or to have an ugly exterior.
4. Reduce Disturbing Outside Noise
Reduce the noise you hear from nearby busy streets, construction sites, loud neighbors, howling winds and howling dogs.
5. Easy Install
Don’t worry about paying someone for the amount of time it’ll take to install storm windows. An experienced contractor should be able to install storm windows (depending on the number of windows) in a day or two.
6. Protection of Primary Windows
Keep your primary windows in better condition for longer by adding the protective layer of storm windows. Storm windows can protect primary windows from damage due to prolonged exposure to dust, light, wind and other harmful elements.
