How to Make Your Home Quieter

A good night’s sleep can do so much wonder for your well-being. However, it can be hard to achieve quality sleep when you can still hear a variety of external noises from the comforts of your bed. Thanks to Renewal by Andersen®’s noise-reducing windows, you can enjoy a more peaceful sleep every night.


Read on to know more about the noise-reducing properties of a Renewal by Andersen window. We also share other tips on how you can block outdoor noise and ambient sounds inside your home.

Noise-Reducing Properties of Renewal by Andersen Windows

A window from Renewal by Andersen typically comes with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. Apart from being impact-resistant, this type of glass can also reduce the amount of noise that penetrates your home.

Renewal by Andersen’s 400 window series particularly has an STC rating of 34. STC (Sound Transmission Class) is a rating system that measures how much sound can be prevented by a specific item. STC ratings generally range from 1 to 38, with the higher number indicating better noise reduction properties.

Other Tips on Reducing External Noise

Apart from installing Renewal by Andersen sliding windows, here are other things you can do to reduce the noise inside your home:

  1. Weatherstrip your interior doors.
  2. Install sound-blocking doors.
  3. Use sound-absorbing materials throughout your home, such as padded carpeting, sound-blocking curtains, and ceiling materials with excellent acoustical properties.
  4. Opt for a sound system that doesn’t broadcast noise.
  5. Fix squeaky floors and noisy pipes.
