New York City winters are tough. New York City winters with enormous windows so drafty they send the shade swinging back and forth are merciless, powerful monsters. This was Laurie Duncan’s seasonal cross to bear in the converted warehouse apartment she and her husband bought 17 years ago in Brooklyn.
What ultimately spurred them to fortify their home against the brutal weather was a quest for energy efficiency. They had just finished swapping every incandescent bulb with an LED in their elaborately lit place and their energy bills were plummeting.
“We were making such strides in our energy consumption and monetary outlay,” said Laurie. “We asked, ‘What else can we do?’”
They were staring straight through it: strengthen those windows to stop the drafts that could be felt a foot away. Their one room, loft-style apartment has three huge single-pane wood-framed windows in a historic, landmark building. Replacing them would cost a fortune.
So they kept researching until they found Indow window inserts.
Since they’re laser-measured to ensure a precise fit, it doesn’t matter how much a window has settled into a trapezoid or parallelogram as Laurie’s had.
And while she didn’t buy the Indow window inserts for noise reduction, window soundproofing in NYC is important. The quiet the inserts provide is arresting. The buses, sirens and the pub across the street that grows loud during televised soccer matches are now all hushed.
She conquered window soundproofing in NYC and slayed harsh city winters. We’re grateful she tells everyone about her secret weapon!
