When you get replacement windows in Henderson, NV, there are plenty of options to consider. Sure, you can get standard windows, if you want or that’s all you can afford. And, the good news is, even standard replacements are high in quality, technologically advanced, and likely way better than what you have on your house now. Standard windows come with at least double pane glass and you can upgrade to triple pane, if you’d like. Between those panes, there’s usually a layer of air, but you can also upgrade to a special kind of gas that will improve your home’s energy efficiency. This gas is called inert gas and it’s denser than air.
Inert gas fillings between your panes of glass, whether you have two or three, is completely clear, non-toxic, and odorless. If your window panes break in the future after a ball hits them, the gas will leak out. However, it won’t harm anything at all. You don’t have to worry about the gas if it happens to get out at some point. It won’t hurt a thing. But you will want to get the window fixed so it doesn’t have an impact on your home’s energy efficiency.
Not all inert gases are the same. There are two main types called argon and krypton. Argon is cheaper because it is easier to produce, but argon is the more efficient of the two. Both are denser than air and do a better job of insulating a house that the standards. You can weigh the prices against what you stand to save and see what works best for your home and budget.
When you look into new windows, you will quickly see the variations of what you can do are nearly endless. You could, for example, stick with double pane glass, but get an inert gas filling for insulation. That could work just as well as getting triple pane glass with air between the panes. Or you could go all out and get triple pane glass along with the inert gas filling and really go for the best in energy efficiency.
If you have a lot of direct sunlight around your home, getting heat through the glass and into your house could be a real problem. Triple pane glass and inert gas fillings can slow that heat transfer a great deal to allow you further comfort and energy efficiency.
