If you live near an airport, a busy street or in an urban neighborhood, noise can be a common concern in your house. You often wonder “Is it noisy in your house?”
Do you live in Barrhaven and hear the buzzing of the constant planes going over your home? I hear this complaint all the time from my customers.
Replacing your windows with dual-pane or a laminated glass can reduce the noise transmission into your home. Many homeowners are often surprised how significant the reduction of exterior noise is once they’ve replaced their windows. Who doesn’t want more peace and quiet in their home?
To help you through the replacement process, let me, Sam Crupi – Ottawa Doors and Windows Professional, conduct a free home assessment to determine what the best type and style of windows and doors will give your home a fresh new look and a stronger exterior and a quieter home!
Many older homes still use their original windows built with single-pane glass. These old windows simply do not help mitigate the daily noise of a busy city such as ours. The least you can do for your own comfort is to allow our experts to determine what the best windows are for your home to provide you more peace and quiet that you deserve.
Here at Ottawa Doors & Windows, we use energy efficient windows to improve the comfort of your home, while saving you money on your energy bills.
The windows we use are from VinylBilt, don’t just trust our word on it, here’s what VinylBilt says on their website about the quality of their windows:
LOE GLASS OPTION
Standard window glass isn’t capable of filtering out heat in the summer, or retaining heat in the winter. Vinylbilt LoE coatings boost the insulating value by 40%, reducing the build-up of condensation and protects your interior furnishings from fading in
LOE GLASS: WHAT’S THE SECRET?
Inside your home, LoE glass retains the long wave radiation that emits from your heating system. Outside, LoE glass reflects some of the sun’s radiant heat keeping it outside.
WARMER IN THE WINTER
In the winter, you’ll notice Vinylbilt LoE treated windows actually feel warmer to the touch. This is because they retain more of your interior heat.
COOLER IN THE SUMMER
In the summer, our LoE treated windows are able to filter out the sun’s heat, keeping the interior of your home cooler.
WINDOW CONDENSATION? NO SWEAT
The moisture in a room changes from a vapour to water when it contacts a colder surface such as a window, which creates condensation. In turn, mould, mildew and other allergens can develop. Along with being unhealthy to your family, these growths can cause premature deterioration of your window finishes. The LoE coating on our Vinylbilt windows keeps the interior temperature of your glass warmer, therefore condensation is dramatically reduced.
