All windows installed by Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix are filled with an argon gas blend that helps turn them into the well-insulated and high-performing replacement window options that they are. If you want to better understand why gas fills in windows are necessary, this article is for you.
Gas Fills in Windows
Multi-paned, gas-filled windows literally have gas filling the space between the window panes. Gas fills are expected to act as insulation, which windows built before the 1950’s didn’t have since they were only filled with air. Combined with Low-E4® glass, a gas-filled window can prove effective in any climate, keeping heat in or out of your home as needed.
Pros of Argon-Filled Windows
Argon gas fills are non-toxic and will not harm the environment before, during or after a window installation process. They are odorless and colorless, too, which means they cannot affect a window’s visual appeal. Gas-filled windows from Renewal by Andersen of Phoenix, in particular, feature great heat resistance, preventing too much heat from penetrating your home.
Cons of Argon-Filled Windows
As it is a type of gas, argon can find its way out of a window that is not properly sealed or installed. When gas fills leak out, condensation may occur and affect a window’s performance. Energy efficiency may be compromised as well as curb appeal since foggy windows are never great to look at.
