Perhaps you have a luxury condo on the beach and are forced to live with music from boom boxes half the time. Or maybe you live in the shadow of LAX. Whether it’s traffic, sirens, dogs barking, helicopters circling overhead or noisy neighbors, if the quality of your life and particularly the ability to get a good night’s sleep is important to you, soundproof windows will make the experience of living in your home a thousand times more pleasant.

Noise & Your Health

The fact is, noise is bad for your health! It is universally accepted that sleep disturbances and disruptions can cause many health problems including changes in mood, increased stress, reduced productivity and diminished alertness.

Sleep deprivation can also lead to serious illness such as heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses. Even one night’s lost sleep can interfere with safely performing everyday tasks. Because sleep is so important, hospitals have installed soundproof windows because of the proven importance of sleep in speeding healing and hastening recovery from surgery and illness.

How Do Soundproof Windows Work

Soundproof Window Installation | Tashman Home Center Soundproof windowsWorking in conjunction with your existing windows, soundproof windows can be installed in bedrooms, living rooms, conference rooms, and a whole host of other loacations. They are made from extra thick glass that helps to block out the sound. In addition to the added mass of the window, soundproof windows generally have a larger space between window panes, and the panes themselves are made from glass that has been laminated on both sides. For more information about how soundproof windows work, take a look at the CitiQuiet FAQ page.

Soundproofing and Energy Efficiency

The additional benefits of soundproof windows is their thermal values. In the winter months, they will cut down on the draft and the cold coming into your home or your office and you’ll save money on energy costs. In the summer months, they will cut down on the heat coming into your home or office and you’ll  again save on energy costs. In addition, soundproof windows can be made even more energy efficient with the installation of a low-E coating on the glass.
