Forum Title: Exterior Storm window pane required to winterize vinyl double pane windows????
I just happened to wonder about this. I have vinyl double pane storm windows, they are double hung with a screen that can go all the way up or down or be removed. Just got to wondering, can there be any insulation advantage in winter to taking the screen out and replacing it with glass, like in old aluminum or wooden frame storm windows? I was just wondering if these types of windows are supossed to not need that, or if its something I should be doing. Appreciate any input, Visser

On paper ask the seller to fix them. Then go from there.

Go Mifune no, you don't need the extra pane. but, it will definitely help. and will pay for itself. at the condo i just sold, had double pane windows. i put the plastic on the inside, and it made a nice difference.

The problem with storms on vinyl windows is it can cause warping and seal failure due to the heat build up. Most vinyl windows will void any warranty if storms are installed. The plastic on the inside is a different story, though you have to watch out for moisture.
