Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows offer many alluring benefits, from increasing your home’s curb appeal to generating major energy savings through better energy efficiency. One lesser-known but still important advantage of our windows is that they significantly reduce noise from the outside.
Why Do You Need Noise-Reducing Windows?
Noise-reducing windows are designed to minimize the sound from the outside. If you work night shifts and need healthy amounts of sleep, if you’re taking care of an infant or have pets who may easily get upset by loud noises, or if your home happens to be located in a busy area, you should consider noise reduction when buying new windows.
How Noise-Reducing Windows Work
Noise reduction works hand-in-hand with heat insulation in that the insulating material used in exterior walls and attics have noise-reduction properties. Whether you have casement or double hung windows, the glass is what makes noise reduction with windows more challenging, since glass is a natural sound conductor. This is where energy-efficient windows come in. A dual-panel glass assembly eliminates contact between interior and exterior surfaces thanks to the airspace created by the two glass panels. This airspace is typically vacuum-sealed, and without air molecules to carry sound, energy-efficient windows significantly improve your home’s soundproofing.
Renewal by Andersen Replacement Windows
Our replacement windows come standard with dual-panel High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which provides heating, cooling, visible light transfer and ultraviolet (UV) protection. In addition to the aforementioned insulation features, our replacement windows have polyvinyl butyral (PVB) layers that augment the glass panel strength, and an optional inert gas fill that further enhances insulation. Combined with our Fibrex® material frames and precise installation techniques, you can expect a quieter, more comfortable home–a true oasis.
