How Windows Make Your Home a Peaceful Place

If you live in a bustling neighborhood, then chances are that you get woken up very early in the morning due to the noise of cars and the general atmosphere around you. In that case, then getting new replacement windows will help you tremendously get that much needed peace and quiet. Thankfully, replacement windows aren’t only energy-efficient and beautiful, but they can also block out outdoor noise.

Here’s how new windows can make your home a peaceful and quiet place.

Sound Transmission Coefficient (STC)

If you’re looking for replacement windows, make sure that you take note of their STC ratings. The STC rating measures how well a window blocks exterior noises. A generic double-pane window with 2.5-mil, single-strength glass has an STC range of around 28 to 31. The higher the STC number is, the better they are at blocking out exterior noise.

It’s almost a given that energy-efficient windows are great at blocking out sound. This is because the same air that carries noise is the same air that provides cool and warm air. Both of which can affect your home’s energy efficiency. Your window company would tell you that installing energy-efficient replacement windows can help you save on your monthly energy bills as well as making your home feel and sound peaceful.

Great Window Designs

Andersen® windows come with High-Performance™Low-E4® that feature special coatings that let light pass through while blocking ultraviolet (UV) and infrared rays. The Low-E coating protects your home’s interior from damage and blocks noise from entering while keeping your home energy-efficient all year long. However, it should be installed properly since air and sound leakage can occur from faulty weatherstripping installation.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
