How exactly is Glass Block for efficient? Standard Glass Block windows have the same energy efficiency to thermal pane windows. They are airtight, so heat and cold will not get in, or out! Glass Block windows are made to have thick-walled, often textural, exteriors with an approximate 3-inch gap of air in the middle. This large air pocket of air is the secret to their energy efficiency. Though the air was initially created to make the block cheaper and less dense, it also adds an insulating factor. The interior dead space traps air, so the light that shines through gets trapped making it stay warmer longer.
