 Argon fill

Author: jps (---.vnnyca.adelphia.net)
Date:   

Virtually every quote I have gotten for windows does not include argon. When I ask about it, I am simply told argon is unnecessary in Southern California. The usual line is "you only need it in a cold area ...". Funny, it gets hot down here - one would think if it were beneficial in a cold area it would be equally as beneficial in a hot area. What is the opinion of the group - is argon fill useful or not (in any climate zone).
