Sound Controlled Window Replacement Options

By December 17, 2018No Comments

No window lasts forever and as your windows get older, you might be glad when the time comes for Salt Lake City, UT window replacementOld windows are bound to lose their efficiency and they can be a pest in other ways as too, like by letting sound in. If you want to enjoy a quiet home, the Milgard window series do an excellent job of protecting a home from noise. However, the Quiet Line Series can reduce the noise that gets into your home by 30% more than the regular windows. If you leave near a freeway or constantly have planes flying over your home, this is a good option to consider.  

Double Glazing And Sound Panels 

The Quiet Line Series comes with double pane glass, which is standard in most window lines today. However, they also have a built-in sound panel on those panes, which gives you basically two windows combined into one. There is superior sound control in these windows and you also get better weather protection because of the way they are put together.  

STC Ratings 

Sound Transmission Class or STC is the rating you will look for on the window’s labels to tell you how well they block out sound. You already know you want to look at ratings like the U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, but if noise is an issue, you’ll want to pay attention to the STC as well. Most double pane windows will have an STC rating between 28 and 32. The Quiet Line Series, however, has a rating up to 48. You don’t have to worry about noise pollution any longer with these windows.  

Complementary Designs 

While you might want sound reduction, you likely want a lot of other things from your new windows. This Milgard line is sensitive to that and gives you all the energy efficiency you want along with an appearance that is similar to other Milgard windows. You can have a uniform window look throughout your home, even if you only put Quiet Line Series windows in bedrooms or other areas. You won’t be able to tell these windows apart by looking at them, but you can certainly hear the difference.
