You have the power to solve your noise problems! I did and my condo is dead silent!
I have a one-bedroom on a low floor facing 6th street and the bars. My condo should be among the noisiest in the building, but it is dead silent with the sound proofing. I never hear cars/traffic and don’t hear most of the music. The only times I am slightly bothered are Friday and Saturday nights after 10/11pm ish when the music is playing and I am trying to fall asleep. The low bass does creep through and is very noticeable… but that is easily solved by playing my own music. A loud fan or white noise machine will also work well. I do hear the occasional garbage truck pick-up slamming early in the morning, but that is about it. For living in the heart of downtown, I am extremely pleased.
I worked with Richard, who was excellent. He came once to take exact measurements and then again about 1-2 weeks after to install the windows. ProHome can’t fix my doorbell after three months and my Miele refrigerator still doesn’t cool, so it was a pleasure to have a vendor get it perfect the first time! Imagine that!! The windows also look great, which was very important to me.
Based on all the noise complaints, this may have been the best investment I have made.
My biggest reason for buying window inserts was for sound. I live in a neighborhood with lots of children, and after they were installed, I was able to relax, read or watch TV without any distractions. Also, a tree had fallen and broken one of my windows this year. Not only did the soundproof window insert keep the broken glass from coming in to the house, it kept all of the rain out too. As far as the energy savings, they have paid for themselves many times over.
I can’t believe how much cooler the rooms are now with our window inserts, especially the ones that face west. One of them was set up as an office and I dreaded working in there during the day due to the heat. You either had to turn your air-conditioning thermostat down (for the whole house) or turn the ceiling fan on high, which blew your papers all around. Now it’s totally comfortable! An added plus is the sound from the street and a nearby freeway is gone.
Montrose area | Houston, TX
I live in a 1920’s bungalow in the Montrose area with beautiful original windows … however, they are drafty. You can see the curtains move. Not any more. I stand by them on cold days now and cannot tell it’s cold, which means I can leave my curtains open. One of my concerns was appearances, as I am all about not cheapening the historical look of my house. The Sun and Sound Window frames are so small, if I don’t point them out to visitors, they don’t realize I have them. I had two rooms put in as a trial and immediately called them back to do the rest of the rooms. Having these installed is much cheaper to what replacing the windows would entail in cost and time. The crew was efficient and fast. Took one afternoon each time to install the windows.
