The hidden benefit of double glazing

26th June 2016 |

Double Glazing

A new double glazing installationDouble glazing has gained a positive reputation for many reasons. This includes thermal performance, aesthetics and easy maintenance.

But there is one benefit that deserves far more attention – the improvement of noise insulation.

Why does double glazing enhance sound proofing?

Just as the extra layer of glazing makes it harder for heat to escape from homes, it also helps to prevent noise getting in.

More sound waves are absorbed in the vacuum or argon gas filled space (between the glass panes). This means that far less sound enters your living spaces.

How will this benefit my home?

Wherever you live in Somerset, chances are, there are some annoying sounds that you hear daily. This may be your neighbour leaving early for work, mowing the lawn, local traffic or even the noise of planes if you live under flight paths (perhaps in areas such as The Chew Valley).

Double glazing helps to reduce the loudness of these sounds, and therefore make your home far more peaceful and quiet. Finally, you can have a lie in at weekends, or relax in your living room without the sound of lorries going past. If you live close to traffic links, this noise reduction will certainly increase the value of your home – which is great news if you are thinking of moving on in the future.

How much noise will it reduce?

It is hard to imagine how much noise double glazing will reduce before it is installed. If we told you that laminated double glazing can reduce noise levels by up to 35 decibels, it probably doesn’t mean much.

However, what if we told you that 35 decibels is equivalent to the sound of a car travelling at over 60mph? Double glazing can help to reduce half of this noise – clearly a serious reduction, and the answer for more peaceful living spaces!

Double glazing offers many benefits for homeowners across Somerset, and Majestic Designs can install it for you. We are trusted FENSA-approved window specialists in the region, and have much experience improving homes – whether your priorities are sound insulation, security, style, thermal performance, or all of these factors combined!
