I am considering installing a storm door with a screen option (a triple track, self storing). Is this kind less energy efficient that a full-view fixed glass type. Does it allow for energy to be lost through the sliding tracks or in between the panes? Thanks.

Full View storm door windows are less energy efficient than self storing door wndows by virtue of the fact that they have more glass to expose to heat loss.

In other words, self storing windows are generally more energy efficient than full view windows all the time.
