4 Ways Environmental Noise Pollution
The constant influx of background noise you hear in a residential home, from morning rush hour traffic to overhead airplanes to noisy neighbors, is more than just an annoyance. These constant sounds negatively affect your health and quality of life so much that we have a term for them: sound pollution.
Homeowners looking to dampen noise pollution in their home can solve that problem through the use of the Magnetite Canada storm window insulator system. Magnetite seals windows of air leaks, reduces noise pollution, improves indoor comfort and eliminates dust and pollen infiltration in your home or office.
Sound pollution is a major problem, especially in modern times. In 1972, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency passed the Noise Control Act for combating noise pollution and its effects. But how does sound pollution harm you and your family’s health?
Soundproof Retrofit Storm Windows Problems
1. Causing Hearing Damage
The intensity of sound (or more precisely the amount of energy transferred by sound) is measured in decibels (dB). Everyday sounds like lawn mowers, overhead airplanes, and occasionally headphones can clock in at 85 dB, which may cause hearing damage if exposure lasts for over 8 hours.
One fact to keep in mind is that the decibel system is a logarithmic scale rather than a linear one. A constant 85 dB audio source damages hearing after 8 hours, but a 91 dB source will damage your hearing after only 2 hours.
2. Reducing Concentration
Noise pollution not only makes you less productive in your work, but it also hurts the learning capacity of your children. It’s important that you isolate yourself from outside sounds like passing trains, as constant background noise statistically reduces learning and cognitive functions.
Reduced standardized testing performance has objectively been linked to high-noise environments. Classrooms should consider investing in commercial soundproof replacement windows.
3. Heart and Stress Problems
Another health problem linked to noise pollution includes cardiovascular disease. Unwanted constant sounds trigger a stress reaction of the nervous system and generate stress hormones, damaging the cardiovascular system.
Typical residential daytime noise increases irritation and reduces daytime relaxation as well, so soundproofing your home with home soundproof replacement windows is worth considering. Not only are they more affordable than replacing your windows, but they will help reduce noise pollution and decrease your stress levels too.
4. Sleeping Problems
If you live in a noisy area, it can be difficult to sleep at night with the sounds of cars driving by, people yelling from the street, and all the other noises you hear in the city.
Sleep disturbance is the most harmful result of noise pollution. Poor sleep means less cognitive ability, daytime tiredness, and mood changes. A set of home soundproof replacement windows will reduce noise levels, allowing you to get a better night’s sleep.
You can’t avoid noise if you live in the city. Traffic in Toronto and the GTA isn’t going anywhere, airplanes are going to fly overhead, and condo construction noise is a given. You can stop the sounds from reaching you.
Noise-canceling headphones and hearing protection are two possibilities, but the most effective strategy is to soundproof or reduce the outdoor sound in your home or office.
