loud air-conditioning engines outside my window
« on: August 18, 2014, 06:09:47 PM »
I am in a three-bed apartment, and right outside my bedroom window are six engines making noise one at the time. I have complained to the leasing office, but they are probably not going to do anything about it. installing the magnetic window seal seems difficult to me without any help. Im not sure how effective it would be to block the constant noise from outside using curtains. Please let me know what I should use to solve the problem.



I estimated the measurement as 40'' x 80''.
Thanks in advance!

Curtains only do about 10% noise reduction if your lucky.
Installing our magnaseal kit with at least 2" air gap and 3/8" plexi glass will work far better for this type of problem.
