can old single panes be made energy efficient w/o storms?
I am restoring a small building to become a wine shop. It is an 1890 cute thing, but between restoration and my long term plans, have a tight budget. My situation is the great 6 over 6 d/h original windows, that are in need of repair are, I would imagine,extremely inefficient. I am trying very hard to maintain the character, but at what cost. Can something be applied, besides storms-which seem like it would be intrusive)to increase the efficiency?
1 other thing. The building front also has huge display windows- 2@ 62 x 101 and another 2@ 26 x 101. Single pane warped beautiful windows. I imagine that is a huge energy sucker...Would love to keep them, but can't imagine how...
