As a homeowner, you want peace and quiet in your home. After all, it’s meant to be your safe haven. While high-quality double hung windows can help with the noise reduction, older, worn down windows or lower-quality windows don’t do much in this department. The good news is, if you’re tired of a noisy home, Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle can rectify this with our noise-reducing windows.
In this post, we discuss what you need to know about our products.
How Our Windows Reduce Noise
Renewal by Andersen windows are made with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass; this significantly lowers the amount of sound that comes into your home. Choosing our windows for your window replacement project allows you to enjoy a quieter living space during the day and more peaceful sleep at night.
Sound Transition Class
To determine a window’s noise reduction capabilities, look for its Sound Transition Class Rating (STC), which is a measurement of how much sound is blocked by the unit. The higher the STC, the more noise it blocks. STC ranges for windows go from 18 to 38; Renewal by Andersen windows, especially the 400 window series, have an STC rating of 34. This means that the amount of sound entering your home is greatly diminished, allowing you to get your money’s worth and some peace and quiet.
