 Re: Low E/Argon filled windows

Author: Mark A (---.dsl.tulsok.swbell.net)
Date:   

I looked up the facts on efficient windows and found that Low-e coating and argon gas filled windows do help, but the annual savings was minimal in my opinion compared to the cost of the windows. The annual cost savings for the low-e/argon gas was only $32 dollars a year. I am being quoted a $40 per window adder just for the argon. That's a pretty porr payout in my opinion. From the performance sheets I saw, the biggest bang for your buck was still using the aluminum frame with a thermal barrier. Much to my surprise and against everything the vinyl salesmans pitch.
