Is Argon Gas Safe?
A. Absolutely. Argon gas is an inert gas that is odorless, colorless and heavier than air and is completely safe. Q. Why use Argon Gas? A. Argon gas is used in a window because heat and cold do not pass through it as easily as air. Its insulation characteristics are what make it so attractive when combined with various Low E glasses. Q. What is an R-value and how important is it? A. “R” stands for resistance. The higher the “R” factors, the better the insulation characteristics. The “R” value of a windows frame and glass is very important since it directly relates to how well the window will reduce energy consumption. A higher R-value will perform better in reducing energy costs than a lower R-value.
