Airport Noise
« on: April 09, 2007, 07:03:53 PM »

I would like to reduce noise from my local airport. I live near O'Hare in Chicago and I'm interested in the options I have to eliminate noise from the frequent jets that are landing and taking off near my home. I don't have any free time of my own so I'm looking for something that can be inexpensively installed and yet silence a significant portion of the noise. I've heard that the city is actually willing to pay a percentage of the cost so if you'd happen to know anything about that please share with me what you might know.

Focus on the windows first, they are the weak link.  A second set of windows installed in the same opening is the most cost-effective solution.  Isn't the most aesthetically pleasing look, but for extreme sound like yours on a limited budget, there aren't a lot of options. 

Then make sure you have heavy, solid-core entry doors with good seals. 

Those two things should help a lot.

Considering my experience with OptiXshield I think you might have very good results with their products. I had a system installed to reduce noise from a nearby expressway and now my home is virtually silent. I had no idea their system could make such a difference. Their installers were courteous and quick to finish their very professional looking work. In addition to the silence I can now enjoy, my utility bills have significantly decreased. This, I later found out, was due to the insulating properties of the system installed. They service most of the Chicago area so give them a call, I think they give free estimates. Their web address is
Let me know if this helps.
