ATLANTA, GA, January 26, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Atlanta replacement window company Maintenance Free Windows is advising homeowners bothered by noise this winter to consider replacing their windows with models optimized for sound control. Maintenance Free Windows provides Atlanta window replacement services, installing high quality vinyl windows with a variety of glass and frame options that save both energy and money.
In cold weather, sound travels farther, allowing the noise from nearby busy roads or commercial districts to more easily infiltrate homes. This can have a negative impact on the quality of life for those who long for a quiet home and a good night's sleep, but are constantly bothered by sounds from outside.
"No one needs the added distraction of unwanted noise in their home," explains Greg Cassidy, General Manager of Atlanta window replacement company Maintenance Free Windows. "Noise cancelling windows are an excellent way to eliminate this problem for a more comfortable and peaceful atmosphere, especially during these winter months, when every distant sound seems to be magnified."
Sound travels farther in winter than in spring or summer due to refraction, as sound waves change direction in different densities of air. In warm weather, sound is pushed up and away from the warmer, less dense air near the ground toward the cooler, denser air higher up. In cold weather, the sound that would typically travel upward remains near the ground for a longer period of time, making Atlanta windows and patio doors more susceptible to the entry of unwanted noise. Though noise cancelling windows can help homeowners enjoy peace and quiet year round, the benefits are especially pronounced at this time of year.
The best windows for sound control typically consist of two or more panes of differing thicknesses, with a layer of air or inert gas in between. As an added benefit for homeowners, these types of Atlanta windows are also highly energy efficient, reducing the amount spent on heating and cooling. Consumers looking to take advantage of these features should contact Maintenance Free Windows at 770-535-7400, or visit the company's website at www.maintenancefree.com.
