Can New Windows Help with Sound Control?

Your home should be peaceful and comfortable, but that can be impossible if there’s no soundproofing. If noises from outside are louder than normal—or are excessive and just don’t seem right—there could be a couple different reasons why.

Do you have old, drafty windows? Your energy-inefficient windows could be the reason why noises are louder than they should be.


Window Replacement & Soundproofing

Windows manufactured today can be more energy-efficient than those installed even just a few years ago! Many modern windows are made with two or even three panes of glass, which means they are more effective insulators.

Double- and triple-pane windows are often marketed for their energy saving features, but keep in mind that the features that insulate your home from the heat and cold can also help reduce outside noise. Today’s windows are available with:

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

These features all work together to help with sound control.

Insulated windows are especially beneficial for those who live in traffic-heavy areas or places where outside noises can be disruptive—such as downtown Indianapolis.
