    Sticky Windows
    Windows are designed to not only let in light, but provide fresh air for your home as well. Consistent trouble opening and closing your windows could signal the need to replace them. Sticky windows may be due to a variety of factors, including sashes that are painted shut, broken or worn parts, and warping of the window frame or glass.

    The Benefits of Argon Gas

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Energy-efficient windows reduce thermal transmission between your home and your surroundings. By reducing the amount of heat that is lost or gained, these windows can minimize the costs of heating and cooling your home throughout the year. Double- and triple-paned windows consist of two or three panes of glass separated by an empty space. Filling this space with Argon gas offers increased thermal insulation and improves the performance of these windows. Argon is a naturally-occurring element that is inert, meaning it will not react with other elements or gases. Using Argon in your triple- or double-paned windows slows the process of heat transference, improving the windows’ insulating properties by several percent. This translates directly into visible energy savings through lower energy bills.

    Wallside Windows utilizes Argon gas in the construction of our windows, offering you the maximum energy-saving benefits when you choose to replace your windows with our products.
