The gas is a poor thermal conductor, so it slows the passage of heat through the glass, eliminating the need for storm windows. Most new windows sold today are dual pane.

Triple-Pane Insulated – Windows which seal two layers of gas within three panes of glass. This type of window is generally used in the northern climates and is also installed in homes near highways to help reduce noise. These windows tend to more expensive because of the extra piece of glass, which also makes the sash very thick and heavy.
