Broken Window & No Heat
One of my two kitchen windows has a broken sash. In the winter, since the kitchen doesn’t have heat it is very cold (I don’t know why homes built in 1922 didn’t include a duct into the kitchen from the gravity heaters!). I partially overcome this with a space heater and close the kitchen door to the rest of the house. My question is should I not repair the broken sash and install a couple of “Renewal by Anderson” windows to replace these double-hung windows? Yes, it will spoil the architecture of the house but for a 3-month winter season, I’m told these Anderson windows will act to insulate the house from the cold of the evenings or on cold daylight days. I know they are costlier than all get-out but if they truly act as insulators I would look forward to their installation over the repair of the double-hung windows.
