When it is time to look for replacement windows, many people make the switch to insulated windows to help with home heating and cooling costs.
Those who upgrade from single-pane windows will notice an added bonus: peace and quiet. This is because the same layer of gas between panes that helps to regulate temperature also dampens and distorts sound waves. As a result, homeowners will notice a marked decrease in ambient outdoor noises.
Window companies can help consumers select an insulated window with an appropriate Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating. Most double-pane windows have STC ratings ranging from 28-32, while single-paned windows’ ratings hover around 18-20.
