Title: Outdoor Electronic Hum/Glass Block Reduce Noise?
Post by: Lucy on April 30, 2001, 09:23:16 PM
I have 2 questions:
There is a large electric generator owned by the City on my front lawn, it emits an electronic hum, which I hear mostly in my bedroom.
1)  I think the the noise is traveling through the ground, so would a fence really help?

2)  My bedroom is already dark, and I am considering adding more windows/and sky lights.  If I were to add a window, would using glass block be a better alternative than the usual double pane window as far as noise reduction?
