Do you live or work on a busy street and find the outside noise intrusive? Maybe you enjoy sleeping in on weekends, but your neighbors like to mow the lawn as soon as the sun comes up. Or you live near a train station and find yourself missing quality sleep. Whatever the reason, I’m here to tell you there is a solution: Indow Window Inserts.
I was dealing with that very issue after moving into our new home. We purchased a corner lot and didn’t anticipate the amount of street traffic we would encounter. After a year of interrupted sleep, I was more than ready to find an answer to how to reduce window noise.
This is a partnered post with Indow and Austin Home Restorations. All opinions are my own.
Check out this short review and installation video of the Indow Acoustic Window Inserts:
How to Reduce Window Noise:
While doing my research on window noise reduction, I came across a video from Austin Home Restorations about Indow window inserts. The installation process was quite impressive – no tools are needed! And Indow acoustic inserts can provide a 70% or more noise reduction. As I analyzed other options like noise cancelling curtains and replacing our (brand new) windows, those options just didn’t compete with acoustic Indow inserts.
How do Indow Window Inserts reduce sound?
Indow Windows are window inserts made out of acrylic glazing and edged with patented Compression Tube. The tubing compresses when pressed inside your window, holding the insert securely in place while sealing out cold drafts and hot air. The tight custom seal delivers superior performance.
In addition to reducing energy costs, they can provide a significant reduction in sound. Indow storm window inserts offer remarkable sound reduction. When placed over an operable single-pane window, the Standard Grade inserts dampen noise by up to 10dBA, which equates to a 50% noise reduction. Acoustic Grade inserts reduce noise by up to 18.9 dBA, equivalent to a 70%+ reduction. So you can save energy, money and get more sleep. Indow window inserts are a triple threat!
Funny enough Austin Home Restorations is a Central Florida company so when I found out that I needed to go through a Indow dealer to order their product, I contacted Scott for help. He came out to our home and used a laser tool to measure our windows and then placed the order.
The Indow window inserts arrived 5 weeks later and I picked them up at the shop. Once home, hubby installed both inserts on the inside of our bedroom windows in less than 10 minutes. Yes – it’s that easy!
Indow window inserts come in 7 choices including standard, acoustic, commercial, privacy, and more. The tubing options are white (pictured above), brown and black. They are just as easy to remove as they are to install too.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with the results. The noise reduction is significant enough that we no longer hear our sprinklers or cars passing on the street. I can hear the garbage truck on occasion, but it’s nothing like the noise before Indow window inserts. And thanks to my new activity tracker that records my steps and sleep patterns, I’ve seen an increase in my hours of sleep and most nights record little to no wake up disturbances.
