Renewal by Andersen® windows will improve the energy efficiency of your home and accentuate its beauty. They can also help improve ventilation and allow for more indoor light. Another great benefit of investing in these windows is that you can enjoy a more peaceful and quiet atmosphere at home.
How Do Renewal by Andersen® Reduce Noise Transmission?
Noise-reducing windows are made to keep too much outdoor noise from entering your home. These windows break up soundwaves, and that’s how noise reduction happens. Renewal by Andersen windows achieves this through pairing impact-resistant glass with a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer. The interlayer features a different density than the glass, which disrupts the soundwaves and reduces the noise that penetrates your indoor spaces.
How Do You Know if Your Noise-Reducing Windows Are Working?
At Renewal by Andersen, we offer the best replacement windows. When you choose us for your window replacement project, you can only expect to have a good night’s sleep and a more undisturbed atmosphere. Noise-reducing windows are ideal for homes in busy neighborhoods or where outdoor noise is a concern.
The Sound Transition Class (STC) rating determines how well noise-reducing windows work. This rating system was made to help measure how much sound is reduced by an object. A window with a higher STC rating can reduce more outdoor noise. The rating for windows ranges between 18 to 38, and every increase in point value is an indication of a higher sound reduction percentage. Renewal by Andersen’s 400 window series features an STC rating of 34. It means you will experience an instant reduction in outdoor noise penetration once your new windows are installed.
