Today’s discussion will focus on reducing unwanted background noise without having to use earplugs. While some recent studies have shown that certain types of exterior noise can cause tremendous amounts of angst and stress, minimizing these irritations can be simply achieved by having replacement windows installed in your home. Noises generated from car alarms, emergency vehicle sirens, barking dogs, sanitation vehicles and even gardening equipment can cause us to go a little crazy every now and then. Blocking out these background stressors can lead to a good night’s sleep, but also some well deserved peace and quiet while we’re awake.
Different sounds travel in different ways, while their intensity levels are measured in watts and decibels. Sound waves, from low to high, have the ability to penetrate and leak through the vulnerable areas around your home. The idea behind our vinyl replacement windows is to seal off every susceptible crack and crevice while allowing the sounds to bounce off or absorb and fade quickly, rather than echoing and traveling into your house. Yes, there’s a great deal of science involved with sound waves and how to redirect them in an effective manner.
