How Krypton Gas Makes Replacement Windows More Energy Efficient
When looking for replacement windows, energy efficiency is no longer an optional benefit—for most homeowners, it is an absolute requirement. That’s because energy-efficient windows help insulate your home, keeping its interior feeling warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer. This helps lower the strain on your HVAC system, which can potentially lead to lower monthly heating and cooling costs. One of the features that help make replacement windows energy efficient is krypton gas fills.
What is Krypton Gas?
The majority of modern energy-efficient windows are built with multiple glass panes, and krypton gas is used to fill the space between the panes. This non-toxic, colorless, odorless gas is thicker and moves more slowly than air does (in fact, it is 164% denser than oxygen!). The denser the gas, the better it functions as an insulating component and prevents energy from easily passing through the panes. Think of it this way: when it’s cold out, wearing a windbreaker provides some shielding from the chill in the air, but a puffy coat will provide more. Krypton gas is that puffy coat!
By having krypton gas in your multi-pane replacement windows, you are ensuring that hot and cold air cannot easily pass through your windows, which will help insulate your home and stabilize its interior temperature year-round. Because you won’t have to constantly adjust your thermostat, there will be less of a strain on your HVAC system, which can potentially lead to lower monthly heating and cooling costs.
