A gas fill is an important feature of any energy-efficient window. This component is used in double glazing technology, a window design that uses two panes instead of one. A gas fill also complements the thermal performance of Low-E coatings, ultra-thin metallic layers that reduce heat transfer.
Installation is a job for professionals, but maintenance is an obligation mostly reserved for window owners. Investing in a water-resistant framing material doesn’t eliminate the need for upkeep.
When buying replacement windows, the ENERGY STAR® seal is one of the first things for which you need to look. It’s a small label that sends a big message about the products you’re about to buy.
