I have looked at the MFJ window panels and can't figure out how you seal the 
between the 2 sashes on a double hung window, as soon as you raise the lower 
sash you loose the seal.
I called MFJ and they didn't know either.

SOME insulating glass units have argon gas, but they are in the minority. 
What insulates an insulating glass unit is the dead air space between the 
two pieces of glass.

My 40 years experience in the glass business tells me to strongly NOT try 
and drill thru an insulated glass unit as 1. it will destroy the air seal 
and allow condensation and loose insulating value, 2. it is extremely 
difficult for even a professional craftsman to drill thru the?two pieces of 
glass in an insulating unit without breakage,,,

Why not use one of the MFJ window panels? They allow you to cut to size and 
come with foam tape to close off the edges.
