Replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen® of Southeastern Mass and Rhode Island can help you spend less on your monthly utility bills due to their outstanding energy efficiency. They can make your home highly appealing from the curb as well, thanks to the wide variety of beautiful styles. Additionally, they also help reduce unwanted noise.
Noise reduction happens when the sound waves are broken up by the window. Noise-reducing windows are designed to prevent excessive exterior noise from coming into your home. Our windows achieve this by pairing impact-resistant glass with a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer. The interlayer has a different density than the glass, interfering with sound waves to stunt noise transmission.
How Noise-Reducing Windows Work for You
Our Andersen® 400 window series has an sound transmission class (STC) rating of 34, which can offer serious sound mitigation. STC is a rating system created to measure how much sound is prevented by something. The higher the STC rating, the better the noise prevention.
The STC range for windows goes from 18 to 38, and each increase in point value is indicative of a high percentage of sound reduction. With our high STC rating, you can be sure that the amount of sound that tries to go through our windows will be noticeable.
If you live in an area with excessive or unwanted noise, then you’ll greatly benefit from our noise-reducing windows. Your home will be much quieter, allowing you to enjoy peace no matter the time of the day.
