STEP 1 - What is Argon Gas? Why is it Used in Windows?
Argon is a non-toxic chemical element. It’s also the third most abundant gas in Earth’s atmosphere. It’s colorless, odorless and non-flammable. Argon gas is pumped into the void between the glass panes in double-pane and triple-pane windows.
Argon gas is used as a gas fill in windows because temperature and sound travels through argon in a less effective manner. This makes argon a very efficient thermal insulator and sound insulator for insulated glass windows.
STEP 2 - How Do You Know if Argon Gas Windows Need Replacement?
Argon gas can escape from the space between the panes of glass if the glass is cracked or broken. The gas may also escape if the seal between the glass panes and the frame is breached. Once the argon gas escapes into the atmosphere, the window’s insulation properties are decreased significantly.
Fogged windows are a sure sign that your argon glass needs to be replaced. Fog can form between the glass panes when a crack or broken seal allows the argon gas to escape, resulting in the accumulation of moisture and the formation of condensation between the panes of the insulated window.
STEP 3 - How is Argon Glass Replaced?
The replacement process for argon glass windows is more or less the same as the replacement process for any other type of window. The window will be measured and a determination will be made as to whether the entire window must be replaced or whether one of the panes must be replaced.
Some double hung windows have a large piece of glass with a separate mullion overlay and the entire panel must be replaced. The same is true of double paned windows with the mullion sandwiched between the two panels of glass. Higher quality windows have multiple pieces of glass, separated by the mullions. In these cases, a single portion may be replaced instead of replacing the entire window.
Squeaky Clean Windows and Glass Restoration will provide you with a price quote depending upon factors such as the size and style of the window. Once the client approves the estimate, we will make an appointment to perform the repairs. In some cases, we may need to pre-order the precise argon-filled glass pane in the proper size and in the proper style.
Our glass technicians will arrive on the designated date and time. We will remove the damaged portion of the window and then we will clean the frame or casing to prepare it for the new panel. Our experts will then install the sealed argon-gas filled glass pane.
Once the new argon glass pane is installed, we will clean the window and provide you with a brief overview of the work that was performed. Our technicians can also assist with window restorations and other window installations.
