Benefits of buying new windows that are gas filled:
Reduced heat loss
Money saved on heating bills will typically offset the cost of replacement windows after just a few years.
By reducing heat loss and keeping the inner glass pane warmer, windows that are gas filled are much less likely to develop condensation. Less condensation will lower the chance of potentially harmful mould and bacteria growth that could trigger health problems such as asthma and dermatitis.
Around 10% of heat loss in the average house occurs through the windows, according to Greenspec, a group led by practicing architects to promote green building products. This heat loss can be significantly reduced by high performance double glazing units that are filled with an inert gas instead of air.
The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) host an independent online Energy Savings Calculator which is worth visiting before making a decision on which windows to purchase. By inputting the windows specifications, the calculator can estimate annual savings on Energy, CO2 and Carbon that can be gained by upgrading.
