When you’re relaxing indoors, the neighbor’s dog or lawn mower shouldn’t break the peace and quiet. That can be annoying, to say the least. Fortunately, there is a way to deal with such disturbances, and that is through timely windows replacement. At Renewal by Andersen® of San Francisco, we provide homeowners with windows that do a great job of reducing noise coming from the outside.
How Windows Ensure Noise Reduction
Windows act as a shield that blocks the travel of sound waves coming from the outside. The same thing can be said for the roofing system and the walls of the home. It should be noted, however, that not all windows can be like the roof or siding in reducing noise transmission. This is where Renewal by Andersen glazing technology makes the difference.
When you choose to replace your windows with ours, your new one comes with two glass panes to effectively obstruct sound transfer. We also optimize the gap between them to allow for greater energy efficiency in your home and for further sound blocking.
Noise Reduction and Energy Efficiency
One of the materials that we use for our replacement windows is the High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass. Not only is it capable of reducing sound penetration into your home, but it also contributes to better energy efficiency. In fact, this is Renewal by Andersen’s most energy-efficient glass option.
Compared to ordinary double-pane glass, it is up to 70% more energy-efficient during summer. Apart from blocking sound waves, it can also deflect up to 95% of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. The clear view of the outdoors is possible because of the glass’s thermal control feature, which is similar to that of tinted glass.
When your home is situated on a busy street, consider replacing your old windows with those that have better noise reduction capabilities. You can rely on Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco to turn your indoors into quieter, more comfortable spaces. Call us today at (866) 609-5033 for your window replacement needs.
