Will gas in windows diffuse prematurely at a high elevation?
There’s a lot of hearsay about krypton and aragon diffusing from windows at high elevations, and I’m wondering if there’s any truth to this.
I’m building a passive house at 7,000’ elevation. And the windows are wood framed, aluminum clad European style and will have either krypton or aragon gas in them.
Does anyone know at what rate of diffusion at this elevation will be? Is it a false belief that gases are not effective in windows at elevation?
The windows will be produced with bladders to allow pressure to adjust when they reach their destination/elevation in Colorado, and will be crimped on site.
