Vented storm protection extends the life of a window system. It circulates the air between windows by creating an upward draft in the space between windows. As the air between the covering and the stained glass warms, it rises and exits the vents at the top of the window. The upward movement of air pulls fresh air into the lower vents. This movement of air is critical for weeping out condensation and reducing the heat between the stained glass and the storm covering. For small- to medium-sized windows, the venting is along the perimeter while larger windows are also vented within the dividing framework of the window.
