This is a brilliant idea. My home has replacement windows that are about 10 years old. Could they also benefit from using these interior storm windows? Thank you.

Adding another layer to almost any window system will improve its performance. Whether or not it will be worthwhile depends on how tight your existing windows already are.

At my house we have the original wooden double hung sash and exterior tripple track aluminum storms. Adding the interior storms makes the rooms much more comfortable all winter long.
