Do they have window screens that let the air circulate while preventing mosquitoes and noise from entering?

I’m not going to buy it, but would like to know if something is on the market?

Part of the purpose of a screen window is to keep bugs, including mosquitoes, out but I don’t see how one could prevent noise.

keeping out noise no but bugs yes, and great for keeping my cats in.

@janbb My AC does that. It is attached via a duct to the window. I was wondering if they had something better?

Think about it. An AC unit blocks the window and/or makes its own noise. A screen is a screen with holes in it. How would it block out noise?

@janbb I would like a science upgrade like Star Treks transparent aluminum, but for sound and windows? It would be a great leap in air conditioning science.

I would like to be able to open my window at night and not hear motorcycles and drunks telling eachother to f-themselves all night.

Fresh air without sounds and mosquitoes is a great idea. Maybe a small portal like my AC duct that lets air in but not sound.

Just wondering.

Mosquitoes – yes.
Noise – no.

Noise, ie Sound, is just pressure waves moving through the air. So if the air can come it, so can the sound. You can soundproof a room and have the air moved through ducts and such that create distance from the sound source and thereby make it harder to hear….but this doesn’t seem to be what you’re asking.

I love having my windows open. I got the heavy duty screens because I had bird nesting nearby that took my older lighter weight screens and would tear holes in them to use in their nests. No bird has made a dent in my heavy duty screens.

HRV systems do that, but they are significantly more expensive than window screens. Basically they bring in fresh air, heat exchange it with inside air, and move it into the house.

There are noise dampening curtains and shades, but they are really meant for loud or echoey rooms, not suppressing exterior noise. Still might help though.
