Interior storm windows

I am considering installing interior storm windows to reduce drafts and heat loss through my aluminum windows.  There are a number of suppliers online, offering various types of storm window – glass or acrylic, do-it-yourself kits or professionally installed, etc. Does anyone have experience with any of these? Any recommendations or things to avoid? Thank you.

I’m in the same boat, and someone suggested Indow Windows (http://www.indowwindows.com). I haven’t tried them yet, but they look pretty neat. If you do go with them, please post here and again and let us know how well they work.

A few years ago I purchased 14 of the the double glazed interior storms from a company in Wisconsin called Energy Wise Mfg. they can be reached at 563-542-2134 or http://www.energywisemfg.com , I put these 14 in the portion of my home that was built in the 1860′s and I just love them. This year I ordered another 18 double glazed interior storms for the rest of our home. What I like about these windows is that they are double glazed and the fact that they are compression fit, no tools needed to install and remove. Takes us about 2 or 3 minutes to put them in and 10 seconds to pop them out. This company uses a perfectly clear film that seems extremely tough, I think it’s wonderful. The thermal effeciancy created be the double glazing feature has proven to be a fantastic energy saver and also knocks down some outside noise. I have recomended these to my family and freinds who have enjoyed the same satisfaction as we have. 
Thanks,

Have you heard of a company called Climate Seal (www.climateseal.com)? I was visiting my sister in Boston for the holidays and they purchased them last year and really love them. I couldn’t believe how invisible they were! They use a magnetic frame with acrylic. A metal channel attaches to the opening and the interior storm window magnetizes to the channel.

I hope this helps.
