Whether you live in the city or the country, noise pollution can be a big problem. Many times, homeowners don’t consider all the sounds they may hear, such as traffic, children playing and more. While most modern homes already come equipped with sound proof windows, older homes may not.
Noise Pollution: What Is It?
While everyone knows what pollution is, they may not realise that noises can cause problems, as well. It may not be harmful to your health, but it can be annoying. Likewise, it can cause health problems if you’re woken up from sleep frequently by passing vehicles and can lead to restless days when kids are playing boisterously.
What To Do
Sound proof windows from Weatherall Windows are the perfect solution to protect yourself from noisy things outside. For one thing, you’ll likely sleep better because up to 95 percent of total noise problems can be eliminated. Studies have shown that proper sleep can help improve memory, focus, performance and concentration, as well as promote a healthy well-being.
Likewise, you’ll note less pollen, dust, and odours from the outside, as they won’t be able to penetrate into your home.
If you choose UPVC with double glazing, you’ll also be able to reduce cooling and heating bills because the air inside will remain at a constant temperature rather than fluctuate up and down.
How They Work
Primarily, sound proof windows use industrial grade PVC track systems, aluminium frames, and 3-ply laminated plate glass. They’re double-glazed, which means that there are two panes of glass, one for the outside and one inside. The space between the panes offers a pocket of air or gas, so noise and air won’t penetrate into the home.
You can also find a wide variety of customisation options, including shapes, styles, colours and more.
