Are you trying to make your home more energy efficient so you won't have to spend so much on heating and cooling costs? You can invest in hermetically sealed double paned windows to keep air from coming in and out of the house through the glass. Below, learn about the efficiency of hermetically sealed double paned windows and what they cost.

What are Hermetically Sealed Double Paned Windows?

Doubled paned windows that are hermetically sealed contain an airtight pocket that creates a barrier between the inside and outside of a house. The pocket of air is also able to keep moisture out of your home when it is raining outside. You will find that there is more regulation over the temperature from the heating, ventilation and air condition (HVAC) system when there are doubled paned windows in your home. The temperature set on the thermostat will remain as it should for a long time before needing to run the HVAC system again.

If you want your doubled paned windows to be even more energy efficient, you can opt for getting argon gas in them before they are hermetically sealed. Rather than having air between the panes of glass, you will have gas that is much denser. Argon gas is heavier than air, so it will make it hard for air to get in or out of the house. As long as the hermetic seal is professionally done, you won't have to worry about the argon gas seeping out too soon. However, the gas will naturally fade away with time and can be replaced.

What Do Hermetically Sealed Double Paned Windows Cost?

The price for double paned windows will be based on the size of your house. You are looking to spend up to $1,000 for each window installed. Double paned windows with argon gas will likely be at the highest end of the scale due to the amount of energy efficiency they can provide. The overall price will also depend on the condition that the window frames are in. If the window specialist has to replace the frames, you are looking to spend up to 100% more than the quoted price.

Don't waste money on big energy bills when you don't have to. Replacing your windows with ones that have double panes and are hermetically sealed can make a big difference in the energy efficiency of your home.
