Noisy Neighbors and Loud Dogs … the Right Replacement Windows Can Help! January 26, 2015 It’s one of those nightmares situations: you move into the house of your dreams, everything seems like it’s going to be perfect, and then you realize that the person living next you is loud, obnoxious, has large dogs that bark all night, and things deteriorate quickly. You close the windows, turn on the air conditioning in the summer, and get more and more frustrated because you can still hear the music, the noise, the barking,. Believe it or not, replacing your windows could actually make a significant difference in your living situation. Whether your neighbors own the home and plan to be there for many years or they’re renters, you don’t need to deal with all of that noise within the comfort of your own home. Choosing high quality, triple glazed windows that are sealed with argon or krypton gas can actually cut out a significant amount of outdoor noise. If you’ve ever been in a high quality apartment or hotel room, you’ve probably noticed how quiet it gets when you close the windows. Part of that has to do with the insulation on the exterior part of building, but it also entails strong, thick glass that has multiple layers and is sealed properly. Not only will these replacement windows help to cut out at least some portion of the exterior noise you’re experiencing, it will also save you a considerable amount of money on your home heating and cooling expenses throughout the year. Imagine being able to save $100 a month or more, on average, on your utility bills while also enjoying a nice, quiet atmosphere within your home. Unfortunately it’s not going to do anything to benefit your outdoor living enjoyment, but there may be certain town ordinances you could take advantage of to help quiet your neighbor down. For that, contact your local authorities. For the rest of it, contact Platinum Windows and Doors today.
