Noise Reduction Windows

If you’re anything like us, you’ve created a list of resolutions for the coming year. Part of those resolutions might even include a focus on better health and home life. Did you know that studies suggest one of the best ways to improve your health is by improving the quality of your sleep?

But, what happens if you live in a noisy neighborhood or have a home with outdated windows? You need to reduce the amount of noise coming into your home so you can focus on better health.

Read on because we have just the thing to help you.

Chances are if you’re experiencing a poorer quality of sleep than you need to, you might need to look toward noise cancellation in your windows and doors.

Why Noise Cancellation Windows?

It has to do with what is known as Sound Transmission Class (STC). According to Milgard, manufactures of the Quiet Line series of windows, “the higher the STC rating, the better sound control you can expect from a window.” Which means, if your windows are single pane or have wooden frames, there is a good chance your STC score is very low. If your STC is low, so is the quality of peace and quiet in your home, which can affect the quality of your sleep.
