Krypton vs Argon 'Is the extra $ worth it'
We were planning on replacing our windows in our 1986 colonial in New England with Harvey Tribute windows with high performance glass u rating .20 insead of the dbl pane argon gas U value .32. Most contractors are looking at us scratching there heads wondering why we want to spend he extra money. "To expensive," they say. One guy said "It would make more sense to him if we were building a brand new house with 2x6 walls." I guess they feel that the windows will be more insulated than the walls. Now we are starting to second guess ourselves. So I'm asking all the experts out there for help. Should we second guess ourselves and put in dbl pane argon gas or stick to are guns and spend the extra cash on triple pane krypton knowing we will be ahead in the end.
