Subject: RE: storm windows and replacement windows

I agree with Bill. The heat build up may damage your new windows.
When I started installing windows for NuSash in the mid 70's, this was a common practice in leaving the storm windows on and we would cut a notch in the storm window tracks to be able to get the storm panels out sideways.
The difference is that those windows were mostly aluminum and were not affected by heat. With the current energy efficiency available in windows today, storm windows really aren't needed anymore.
Another consideration is that the window warranty may be void if the storm windows are not removed.
