If you’re searching for replacement windows, you’ve likely focused on choosing the style and material type that best matches your home. Another key feature to consider is which type of glass will help your home maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the year. Glass can impact the amount
of heat or cold that gets inside and contribute to energy efficiency.
A key feature of our Low-E insulating glass is that it can be crafted with argon. Wondering what argon is? We get that question a lot.
Argon is a colorless, nontoxic gas that’s denser than air. It’s an abundant atmospheric gas, and it doesn’t react with other elements. Argon also has low thermal conductivity, meaning heat does not easily transfer across it. This makes the gas perfect to use as a form of insulation in glass because it slows down the transfer of hot air into your home during the summer months and slows down the transfer of heat out of your home in the winter.
We use insulating argon between panes of Low-E glass because it
provides lots of benefits to our customers. Some of
the best results are shared below.
- Depending on the glass type, Argon blocks 69% to 94% of the
sun’s ultraviolet rays, protecting your home from harmful rays.
- Argon helps keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler
in the summer to help keep you comfortable.
- Better insulating windows can help lower your energy
