Storm windows can be one of the best components you can add for your home. Commonly used in homes with single-pane windows, these units protect your home from moisture, heat and the elements. They even provide a barrier to prevent outdoor sounds from entering your interior. More importantly, they preserve the vital parts of your existing windows, including the seals and the glazing.

Different Types of Storm Windows
Storm windows come in three different types. The exterior types are available in various configurations that match standard window sizes. Mounted to the outside of the house, they also come in wood, vinyl and aluminum. The interior types, meanwhile, are inserts designed to fit snugly inside interior window frames. Such products vary in various aspects: some are simple while others are framed in either vinyl or fiberglass.
Temporary storm windows, the third type, are installed during the coldest months but can be disposed after use. Window installation pros note that these products are available as single acrylic panels that fit inside a window’s pane.
