Your home should be your sanctuary. It should be the one place that you can go where you feel safe, calm, and relaxed. If there’s a lot of noise that happens outside your home and leaks into your space, it may be hard to find peace.
One way to reduce the amount of noise that gets into your home is to soundproof your windows. These elements on your home are designed to let things in, including light and air, but they also let in sound—even when they are closed.
One of the best ways to make your windows soundproof is to install soundproof windows. These can reduce the noise levels by quite a large margin, and they may not require getting all new windows throughout your house. In some cases, it only requires having a second window installed behind the window that is already in place. It will also open and close just like the one that’s already in your home.
If you’re not quite ready to have another set of windows installed in your home, some things you may attempt to make your windows more soundproof include sealing your windows. Your windows need to be properly sealed to reduce the amount of noise they let in. This can be accomplished using soundproof foam, insulation, or tape.
You’ll also need to make sure that the glass on your windows isn’t cracked. This could let sound in, as well as cause other issuing, including letting air in and out of your home. This could reduce how efficiently the house heats and cools itself.
You may also consider adding heavy curtains that block out noise. Most of the time, these only work when they are closed, so if you’re trying to block out sound during the day but still want the light to come through, you may have to find another alternative.
