Can Double Glazing Reduce Noise?

10 May 2020

One of the main benefits of double glazing is that it is the ideal solution for reducing noise in your home. Double glazed windows are perfect for households based on main roads or busy built-up areas plus they look great and keep your home warm all year round.

Lichfield Windows is the leading supplier of double glazing windows and high-quality conservatories for customers across Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield. For our latest blog, we are going to deep dive into how double glazing will benefit your home.

How Does it Work?

Double glazing comprises two panes of glass with space in between them. Typically, the space in between the panes of glass is separated by either a vacuum or argon gas, which enhances insulation qualities. Those extra layers of protection serve as a barrier which reduces the sound of external noise in your property.

Sounds from outdoors will most often make their way into your home through windows, with not much protection offered by single-glazed windows. Alternatively, double glazed windows need the sound to penetrate two layers of glass which dampens its impact.

High-quality and properly fitted double glazing from Lichfield Windows is also sealed, meaning there are no holes or gaps for sound to easily pass through. This is great in reducing noise from outdoors plus it makes your home more thermally efficient.

Explaining Noise Reduction

Excess and unwanted noise can have adverse effects on your health, with industry research stating that people in noisier environments can suffer from higher blood pressure.

Double glazed windows are the most effective way to reduce the impact of traffic noise and create a more relaxing home environment.
