Sound Proof Your Home With New Windows
Increasing the thickness of your Salt Lake City windows can greatly reduce sound penetration. This is especially helpful if you live in a noisy neighborhood, or near loud parks, roads or businesses.
Upgrading your windows to double pane windows is the best option for blocking out sound. To achieve maximum soundproofing, a pane 1/8 inch thick with a pane of 1/4 inch thick glass is ideal. You will also want to make sure that the thickness between the two panes is about an inch. Dual pane windows can block out 25% or more noise over the single pane windows.
If replacing your single pane windows with double pane windows isn’t an option, changing out the glass for thicker glass is your best option. Pan
es that are 1/8 inch or less in thickness are not good at blocking out sound. They also allow air leakage and heat loss, which is not good for energy efficiency. Panes that are 1/4 inch are ideal for stopping sound and help increase the efficiency of you home.
In the end, making your home more comfortable for you and your family is important. Reducing the sound that comes through your windows can help create a much more peaceful atmosphere in your home.
