The Pros and Cons of Argon Gas-Filled Windows

According to window replacement service experts, gases are often injected in between your window’s panes. That way, they can slow the transfer of heat through your window, allowing your home to remain cool and comfortable all year round. One of the most common gasses that window manufacturers fill their windows with is argon and this is due to the numerous benefits they bring.


The Pros and Cons of Argon Gas-Filled Windows


The Pros of Argon Gas-Filled Windows


Using argon in windows has a wide range of advantages for homeowners like you. For instance, not only does it improve the U-value of your window and allows you to achieve significantly long-term energy cost savings but it also enhances its soundproofing characteristics, allowing your home to become more peaceful and quiet. It can also be used in every climate and may even reduce the possibility of condensation and frost at the same time. And if that isn’t enough, argon gas neither contaminates the environment nor will it corrode your window materials the same way oxygen would.


To install an argon gas-filled window in your home, simply turn to house window replacement expert Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis for assistance.


The Cons of Argon Filled Windows


Like everything else, however, argon gas does come with its own set of disadvantages. This is because according to experts, while argon gas doesn’t expand, glass does. This can eventually destroy the seals of your window, allowing the gas to seep out and moisture-laden air to seep in. Once this occurs, condensation can build up in your window, affecting its aesthetic appeal and potentially allowing mold to grow and spread throughout your home. This is why it’s important to trust only reputable companies for your window replacement needs. With quality window products and installation, you can be assured that you won’t have to worry about these cons.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
