Due to its heavy density it allows less heat to escape and less cold to enter the house. This gap is generally kept at a small 20mm to increase efficiency of the insulating medium. The glasses used are also coated with a special coat that re-radiates the heat during cold month so as to keep the heat from escaping out into the surrounding and prevents the heat during summers to enter the house.
