Here’s a look at the many panel and screen options offered by Marvin. (Click to enlarge.)

Often confused with storm windows, an energy panel is technically a glazing option. It is a removable, exterior glass panel finished on the edges by a surround. Energy panels cover the exposed glass surface of each sash, and offer added energy efficiency for wood windows with single glazing.

To keep your panels in optimum working order, occasionally make sure that all fasteners on your energy panels are closed securely. Clean and maintain the glass the same way as your other windows for regular interior and exterior care.

Do not caulk around your energy panel. It is designed to allow a certain amount of air circulation.
