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:
- Replacing appliances with quieter, more energy-efficient models
- Adding carpeting to lessen the noise bouncing off of hardwood floors
- Weatherstripping around interior doors
- Adding or improving insulation
If you’re ready to install new windows in your home and noise is an issue, consider acoustic windows. The Harvey Classic vinyl acoustic window system integrates our secondary-glazed thermal unit with a Classic vinyl double hung, with special glazing for extra noise reduction. Do you deal with unwanted noise from aircraft, trains, automobiles, and other nuisances? Acoustic windows can help make a difference.
Harvey acoustic windows are available in several styles; choose from double hung, picture, casement, and rolling windows. Visit our website to download a brochure for more information.
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, Harvey Estate Series Storm Doors, and Harvey Traditional Storm Doors storm doors.
