Homeowners who live in historic neighborhoods who want to jump on the energy conservation band wagon may consider replacing their historic windows with dual-paned vinyl-clad windows that are not historic. Once the historic windows are gone, they are lost forever in the landfill.
A Storm Sash Window is a better alternative for historic neighborhoods because it does not need a permit, does not detract from the historic nature of the building, is at least 1/5 the cost, and, my favorite, can be built locally. All homes built prior to 1970 with single-pane wood windows would benefit from a Storm Window rather than replacements even if they are not in a historic neighborhood. In this video Jim talks about how storm windows can be installed and why it is a better idea than window replacements.
