Pros and Con of Argon Gas-Filled Replacement Windows

Keep energy efficiency in mind when investing in new windows. This means checking not only the framing material and glass technology, but the inert gas fill included with the product as well. Leading window manufacturers, for instance, use argon gas to fill that space between the two panes.

What Makes Argon Gas the Superior Option?

Using just plain air between the panes encourages moisture to condense on the inside of the window, making the glass cloudy. Argon gas, however, eliminates this possibility. This particular gas fill is also a better insulator compared to its counterparts, helping prevent unwanted heat from transferring into your living space via the windows.

Pros of Argon-Filled Windows

Your new windows should also insulate your home from outdoor noise. When you choose argon-filled units, you can make this possible. They reduce noise transfer to your home, allowing for a calmer and more relaxing atmosphere.

Did you know argon is a colorless, odorless and non-toxic gas? It occurs naturally and comprises less than one percent of the Earth’s atmosphere. Because it leaves no carbon footprint, argon remains one of the more environmentally friendly window gas fills available in today’s market. Its thermal performance is unmatched, thanks to its superior insulating value, which allows for windows that can effectively maintain your home’s cool and comfortable environment during the summer.

Con of Argon-Filled Windows

You should know that despite its great features, argon gas still has a downside. Even the tiniest gap in the window seal can cause the gas to leak outside. This gives moisture-laden air the opportunity to seep into the space between the window panes, resulting in condensation.
