STC (Sound Transmission Class) ratings are an established way to average how much sound is stopped by something. STC ratings are used for windows, doors, walls and most building materials. The STC rating is the average amount of noise stopped at 18 different frequencies, measured in decibels. STC ratings are a logarithmic scale similar to the earthquake Richter Scale, which means each number is significantly higher than the one before. The STC Ratings for double paned windows usually vary from 26 to 33. Soundproof Windows STC ratings range from 48 to 54, which varies depending on the existing window and the air space. Over a single-paned window in a standard wall, the STC rating is 48. Over double paned windows, the STC rating is 48... Read More →

The answer is that while double pane windows are slightly more effective than single, in a noisy environment, you will hardly notice the difference between the two.

While double pane windows do stop a little more noise than single pane windows, in a noisy environment, you will hardly notice the difference between double and single pane windows. The insulation values in double pane windows are much better than single pane windows but does little for sounds. In a double pane windows, the two pieces of glass are coupled within the same frame and vibrate together – like the two tynes of a tuning fork. This makes the noise at that frequency nearly “invisible” to the glass and allows the noise rushes through. The only effective way to soundproof windows is to install a second set of windows. There are many ways to do this and the results can vary a huge amount.... Read More →
Single pane windows do not stop that much noise. They are also usually old enough to leak air and allow noise into the house. Replacing your single pane window with a good quality dual pane window will reduce noise levels by up to 25%. However, if you do not choose the right style and glass thickness, the noise levels can actually go up instead of down. If you have an historical home or have other reasons to not replace the windows, perhaps changing the thin glass to a thicker glass is also an option. A more effective and better way to soundproof windows is to install a second set of windows. There are many ways to do this and the results can vary. Soundproof Windows... Read More →
