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 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.

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.

"We are absolutely pleased with our decision to have our windows replaced by RbA. The in-home sales was pleasant and no pressure. Since each window is custom made, it did take several months. The wait was worth it. Our windows are lovely! The installers were courteous and professional. They completely cleaned up and hauled away the old windows. We recommend RbA wholeheartedly."
