New Windows Could Be Your Remedy For Noisy Neighbors

Don’t you just love your neighbors? If they’re noisy, probably not.

Unfortunately, you probably did not expect to have the noise problems you do when you moved into your home. Unless you are included in the festivities your neighbors are partaking in, chances are the noise that comes from them is irritating you. This can be especially true if you are just trying to unwind after a long day at work, or if your baby who has cried for the past hour non-stop finally fell asleep.

Your neighbors might not be the only thing to blame for your irritation at the noise level outdoors, either. Other things such as traffic and birds can be quite annoying as well.

The noises your neighbors, birds, and traffic make bounce around your home in waves. These waves cause doors, walls, and windows to vibrate, translating the sounds to be very loud inside of your home.

Windows Often Let Noise Inside Homes

Homes with vinyl siding and good insulation will likely help block a lot of the vibrations that are coming through the walls. Windows and doors are usually the culprits in letting these annoying noises in.

Fact:  Up to 90% of the outside noise that enters a home gets in via the windows and doors. 

So, before you think that you have to move out of the home you have lived in and loved to escape the noise your neighbors can not seem to cut down on, you should think about replacing your windows.

Investing in vinyl replacement windows will help drive away those noises that are just so annoying. Not only will vinyl replacement windows keep noise out, they will also help to keep heating and cooling in. Ultimately this will lead to lower energy bills, and eventually the windows will end up paying for themselves in energy savings.

You might even end up thanking your obnoxious neighbors for being noisy once you see your energy bills shrink after replacing your drafty windows.

Of course, we all want our neighbors to be quiet, respectful, and friendly. If you got lucky enough to have all that in your neighbors, that is fantastic. Maybe your issue is with annoying crows, horrible traffic, or construction noises nearby. Whatever your reasoning for being annoyed by the amount of obnoxious noise you hear, you will be extremely happy to rid the noise easily with replacement vinyl windows.

But when it comes to outside noise reduction, not all windows are created equal.  Make sure to know what the ratings on the windows mean, so you can choose the best for your home.  And you can add even more noise-dampening power to those windows by choosing triple-pane glass, which will also save you even more on your heating and cooling costs.
