Most energy auditors tell homeowners that replacing windows and doors should be low on the list of energy saving measures. And for good reason. New high-quality windows can cost upwards of $1,000. Replacement windows are less, of course, but aesthetically they are probably less attractive than your old ones. But at the same time- old windows are usually cold and leaky.
So when we found Indow Windows, custom-made, compression interior storm inserts, we got really excited. Here is a way to save your existing window, double the R value, dramatically reduce the air leakage, improve comfort and best of all save energy dollars.
Since every window is unique and Indow Windows are made to order, the measuring system requires laser technology and software. We became a dealer because we feel that homeowners should not feel the pressure of measuring and ordering them. Mistakes are costly!
There is another reason why windows cost you in energy dollars. Warm goes to cold and the coldest surface in the room is the window. Think of your body as a sun as it tries to warm the area around it. Even though the thermostat says 68 or 70 degress, many people just “feel cold” and raise the thermostat to try and stay comfortable. The surface of an Indow Window is much warmer than glass and so you will feel warmer even if the temperature is the same in both cases.
