Best Windows for Sound Reduction

Are outdoor noises louder than they should be? When you get home from work, you want a relaxing, peaceful environment—not one where you can hear traffic and people outside talking. While insulation may be one solution, another one you may not have thought of is window replacement.

New windows can help with sound control—but there are so many choices. Which ones are the best for helping reduce outside noise? Contact Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie to discuss replacement for your home, or keep reading to learn more about the best types of windows for sound reduction!

What Are the Best Windows for Noise Reduction?

There is no single window style that is significantly better than the rest when it comes to soundproofing. The number of panes is a more important factor to consider. If you have old single-pane windows, we recommend replacing them. Double- and triple-pane windows are often marketed for their energy saving features, but the features that help insulate your home from the heat and cold can also help reduce outside noise. Modern windows are available with:

  • Glass glazing
  • Improved weather stripping
  • Insulating gases (like argon)

These work together to help reduce noise from outside.

According to the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), soundproofing is a factor to consider when buying new windows. Products have certain ratings for this. Acoustical performance ratings measure the amount of sound transmission through a window. The higher the sound transmission rating, the better the window is at reducing noise from coming through. Learn more about window NFRC ratings and labels.
