One of the quieter perks of new windows, though often overlooked, is their ability to reduce sound transmission compared to older windows. EcoView vinyl replacement windows can lower interior noise levels by up to 40 decibels, equivalent to muting an alarm clock. This feature is particularly valuable for homes in bustling areas like busy streets, commercial zones, or near highways, train stations, or airports.

The control of sound through windows and doors has traditionally focused on weather-related factors such as cold, heat, sun, and rain. However, as urban areas grow and transportation noise becomes more prevalent, addressing exterior noise has gained importance in home improvement.

This shift in focus has stemmed from two main sources. Firstly, there's a necessity to shield homes near airports from the disruptive noise of aircraft. Secondly, advancements in glass technologies aimed at energy efficiency or durability have inadvertently improved sound insulation.

Sound travels through windows and doors via air infiltration (like an open versus closed window) and vibrations in the window's components. To reduce sound transmission, various strategies can be employed, such as using weather stripping to minimize air infiltration, employing multiple panes of glass and different materials, and adding storm windows for added insulation.

By disrupting the path of sound through methods like controlling air flow or vibrations, adjusting surface thicknesses, or creating spaces between surfaces, significant improvements can be achieved. When combined effectively in window and door systems, these methods can transform noisy exteriors into peaceful interiors within a building.
