New Windows Provide Sound Control

Hi Folks! Do you live in a noisy neighborhood? Can you hear car horns and loud engines while you’re at the dinner table? It might be time for new windows. When you think about buying new windows, noise reduction is usually not on your mind.

New Windows Can Help You Sleep Better

Noise affects you, even while you sleep. Even if you don’t wake up, the brain still reacts to the stress induced by loud, continuous noise. Increased headaches, stress, high blood pressure and sleep disorders have all been linked to excessive sound exposure. New windows will provide you with noise reduction, which will enable you to sleep better.

You may wonder how we rate the sound control of a window. We use a system called Sound Transmission Class (STC).  STC is an integer rating of how well a building partition reduces airborne sound. In the United States, it is widely used to rate windows and doors. New windows with dual pane insulating glass units reduce the level of sound infiltrating from the outside, but windows and doors with sound reducing glass can drastically reduce unwanted noise from entering your home.
