Can Argon in windows be dangerous at all?

I'm not a chemist, so I don't really know my stuff here - I just know I'd be a little apprehensive about installing double-glazed windows with an argon filling. Can someone assure me argon is completely safe it leaks into the house?

Argon is non-toxic and in small doses is absolutely harmless. The only time you'd ever run into a problem would be in a chamber absolutely full of it, and that's only because it's denser than air! Don't worry about it  ;)

It's very unlikely that it would ever hurt you, to be honest. Although it is 25% denser than air and has the potential to prevent the body from taking in oxygen properly, it is very unlikely! Simply because it remains within the confines of the glass :)
