Noise Pollution Types
The four categories of noise
Wherever you live, and however you spend your time, when you are at home you want peace. You want your house to be a haven of tranquility where you can find solace from the stresses and demands of everyday life.
In the modern world, however, this desire is not always easily achieved. That precious peace can be disturbed with noise from a variety of sources – especial-ly if you live in an urban environment.
Hugo Carter understands how important peaceful living is to you – and has the solutions to bring you the silence you crave and deserve.
We believe there are four main categories of noise:
Anti-social Noise Pollution
Living very close to a town centre or your favourite watering-hole clearly has its advantages – but it also brings drawbacks in the form of anti-social noise.
It could come in the form of loud music, or simply the sound of large groups of people partying well into the night – well past the hour when you long for peace and quiet.
It’s not always easy – or advisable – to confront those responsible for such a disturbance. The answer may be to install windows that reduce anti-social noise to manageable levels.
Road Noise Pollution
In these motorised times, it is unusual to live in a home completely untroubled by the noise of traffic. The sound of cars, motorcycles, buses and lorries is rarely absent from our lives, whether it is a constant roar, a steady hum or an occasional irritant.
Noise pollution can put a serious strain on people’s lives. Excessive traffic noise can make it difficult to relax in your home and lead to disturbed or sleepless nights, with a knock-on effect on your peace of mind and general health.
The good news is that there is an answer. At Hugo Carter, we understand your desire for less traffic noise in your life, and our soundproofing windows will improve the atmosphere in your home.
