Restored steel casement window solutions?
After doing some thermal investigation, I have restored a bunch of late '50s steel casement windows for use on an addition. I had found a place, Innerglass, that made interior, spring loading, storm windows that sounded like they would take my casements from beautiful to practical.
However, recently I have read about "magnetic bellow" design window inserts, so I am looking for advice.
I live in central Illinois. Lots of the casements will be facing south. I know these windows arent the smart choice, but I really like them.
Any advice on how to make these windows the best they can be, thermally, would be greatly appreciated.

We plan to use Obdyke Hydrogap between the hardie board siding and the Zip wall. Will that be an adequate drainage plane? or are furring strips also needed?
