How Well Do Renewal by Andersen® Windows Abate Noise?

Peace and quiet are luxuries homeowners with old-fashioned windows don’t usually enjoy. Other than outdoor noise, privacy is likewise a concern when sounds coming from inside the house can easily travel outside.

 windows reduce noise transmission

Fortunately, there are many solutions to noise reduction. The use of sound-absorbing furnishings, like upholstered furniture or rugs, and acoustic tiles is a quick fix.

But to meaningfully move the needle in noise abatement, upgrade to Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento windows. Our products feature revolutionary High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which remains one of the best innovations in the fenestration industry in recent memory.

Here’s what makes our High-Performance Low-E4 glass options effective in soundproofing.

Double Glazing

Our bow, bay, sliding and double-hung windows come with two panes. That’s why our products are naturally thicker than their single-pane counterparts. Thanks to double glazing, our units inhibit sound transmission well.

Optimized Air Space Width

The panes of our windows and glazed doors are not too far nor too near from each other. As a result, they offer a healthy balance between noise abatement and energy efficiency.

Argon Gas Blend

Mainly, we use an argon blend as a gas fill to minimize the transfer of heat through the window. But experienced builders would attest that this insulator can keep invasive noise at bay, too.

Weathertight Seal

We use two specialized sealants to make our casement, specialty and picture windows airtight over a long period. Compressed butyl serves as a gas barrier while specially formulated silicone helps keep our panes and stainless steel low-conductivity spacer stable.

Moreover, our installation process eliminates all gaps around windows and doors. Our products are custom-built, so we don’t have to rely heavily on spray foam to create a tight seal.
