Low-e and Argon Gas windows
(Brampton, Ontario, Canada)
I am considering replacing several windows in my house. I have 3 parrots located close to 2 of the windows with plants in front of the windows to provide some shading and safety for the birds. Most window manufacturers offer low-e coated and argon gas filled windows. Is there any disadvantages to the birds with the low-e coating? I do not want to have to supplement with any kind of extra lighting. Also, is there any danger to the birds if the argon gas escapes the window into the room? I have tried to find some answers but couldn't find anything for birds. Thank-you very much.
