Special Gas in air gap

I was trying to see if it’s possible to make the air gap for a custom window assembly be something other than air such as argon. I came across this post on the old GH forum:

I also looked through some of the Honeybee code and did come across references to argon, krypton and others in there, but I can’t find it in the EP Window materials list. Is this possible?

You can do that using LBNL Window and export from there to use with Honeybee.

Hi Dennis,

You can use the attached modified version of the component to specify an other type than AIR.
It does not check if the gasType is correct. You can specify : AIR, ARGON,KRYPTON or XENON
