2 Window Options That Can Help You Relax

by Gaëtan Meunier

Replacing the windows throughout your home is a great way to increase the security and value of your house, but did you know that there are some window options that can make your home more comfortable and relaxing? Electrochromic and sound-blocking windows are two great options that will make it much easier to relax at home after a long day.


Electrochromic windows are an interesting type of window that actually requires power to function. When you apply voltage to an electrochromic window, the glass will darken. In most cases, you can darken the glass so much that no one will be able to see through the window. 

However, these windows go beyond simply allowing you to switch between transparent and opaque glass. An electrochromic window can be tinted to varying degrees at the touch of a button, allowing you to tint your windows to increase privacy while also preserving your view through the window. 

This type of glass is very useful if you need to sleep during the day due to working a late shift or simply because you are a bit of a night owl. This is because electrochromic can be expected to block right around 98% of light.

Another way that this type of glass can help you relax is by making the inside of your home cooler by preventing the sun's rays from getting into the home and heating it up. This has the great added bonus of allowing you to save money because your air conditioner won't be needed as often.


Sound-blocking windows are a great resource if you live in an area where there is a lot of noise because they can block between 90% and 95% of any sound attempting to get into your home via the window. This makes these windows ideal if you live in close proximity to a school, highway, or if you just happen to have very noisy neighbors. With these types of windows in place, you will be better able to relax after a long day without having to listen to obnoxious noises all day. 

These windows can help you block out the sound because they are typically made from a single thick pane of glass. In some cases, you can even find sound-blocking windows that use two panes of glass with air in between them in order to cut down on the noise entering your home.

One great way that this type of window can help you relax is that you will not have to worry as much about bothering your neighbors. This is because this type of window also blocks any noise attempting to exit your home via the window, thus allowing you to enjoy your hobbies and activities within your home at louder volumes.
