Using Storm Windows with Vinyl replacement windows

Hi, We are replacing the old single pane wndows in the house with new Low-E vinyl replacements. With the tax credit it's a good time to finally do that project.

My question is whether you can use storm windows with Vinyl replacement windows or not. I thought I heard at one time it was not a good idea, as the heat captured between the two might cause the vinyl to warp and possibly result in seal failure.

Any thoughts?

sounds like a question for the window maker.

Did you check with the manufacturer? What did they recommend? I am having the same dilema with using storm windows with my new replacement windows.
