What is the difference between Low E and Argon and how do they affect the R Value?

Low E is a factory applied coating that in the winter months, helps reduce heat loss from the interior of your home through your windows, resulting in a reduction of necessary energy to heat your home.  During the summer months, Low E reduces the amount of heat gained through solar energy, not allowing the direct heat to enter through the glass.

Argon is a harmless gas, denser than air, which is pumped between your window panes, replacing the existing air, creating less heat flow through your window, increasing insulating value.
