Prevention of noise pollution is essential for your family’s peace of mind and well-being. You don’t want outside noise interfering with your leisure time, your family’s sleep, or things like your children’s study. Society today is more crowded than ever and considerably noisier than in years past. But this issue doesn’t only affect family homes. Offices and other places of work are also being affected. What could be the solution? Well, one great option is the use of soundproof windows.
So what is a soundproof window? A soundproof window is one specifically made to reduce noise levels (sure, you probably knew that). It acts as a sound barrier and dispenses most noise issues. Research has shown that most soundproof windows have the capacity to reduce noise levels in regions ranging from 75 – 90%.
There are many benefits to using soundproof windows:
• Helps you perform better: Noise can be very distracting. Church bells, car alarms, barking dogs, etc. can easily interfere with your focus. Research has shown places such as offices, schools, and training centers have reported higher productivity and memory levels from their students and employees when they make use of soundproof windows.
• Improves your overall health and well-being: The treatments used in soundproof windows ensure that you are protected against certain allergies and skin cancer. It guarantees you have little or no dust, pollen, or harmful microbes entering your environment. Additionally, it reduces harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun that are responsible for skin cancer. This also means that it can be used for protecting valuable art and furniture from the sun’s damaging rays.
• Reduces energy costs: Since the soundproof window treatments used also insulate the room, you won’t need to use as much energy to heat or cool the room, saving you on heating bills during winter and air conditioning expenses during summer.
Even with these benefits, it is important to know the cost of both regular and soundproof windows. A regular window, on average, can cost somewhere between $450 and $600. But a soundproof window can cost anywhere from $500 to $1500. While initial cost is higher for soundproof windows, the benefits in the long-run are well worth it.
