We all want our homes to be our safe haven. Home should be a place we go to relax and wind down after a long day. If you live in a noisy neighborhood, however, your home can be anything but tranquil. Studies have shown that excessive noise can affect our bodies, our sleep, and even harm a child’s development.
Fortunately, there are many ways to reduce the amount of noise in your home. These include:
- Weatherstripping around interior doors
- Noise reducing replacement windows
- Adding storm windows and doors
- Adding or improving insulation
- Adding carpeting to lessen the noise bouncing off of hardwood floors
In this article we’ll focus on what we do best – windows and doors.
Do you deal with unwanted noise from aircraft, trains, automobiles, and other nuisances? Acoustic windows make all the difference. The Harvey Classic vinyl acoustic window system integrates our secondary-glazed thermal unit with a Classic vinyl double hung, with special glazing. That’s a lot of mumbo-jumbo to say: extra noise reduction.
Harvey acoustic windows are available in several styles; choose from double hung, picture, casement, and rolling windows.

Installing a storm door can also help reduce the level of unwanted noise. In addition, storm doors provide extra protection against the elements. Harvey Building Products carries Andersen Storm Doors, and Harvey Traditional Storm Doors.
