Soundproof Your Home with Insulation

soundproofing-homeGood fences make good neighbors, but great insulation makes great neighbors, especially if you live in a busy, bustling neighborhood. If you know your neighbors’ business from dawn to dusk, and you’d prefer not to, then you might want to consider the insulation in your home. If you’re hearing more than what you’d like to hear from outside your home, then soundproofing your home with better insulation is a great solution.

If you live in a home on a busy street and the sound of traffic keeps you up at night, then adding insulation to your exterior walls can help. If your home isn’t properly insulated, then it’s not just going to let either the hot or cold outdoor air in; it’s also going to let sound in. Walls that are adequately insulated provide you with more than just climate-based comfort; they also provide more peace and quiet.

Living in a loud neighborhood bustling with families and general busyness can be fun at times, but sometimes the noise of it all can get a little overwhelming. If you’ve been living with more outside noise than you’d like to, no need to become the neighborhood curmudgeon! Just call Standard Insulating Co., and we’ll complete a whole house evaluation that will show you what you can do to make your home more soundproof.

Soundproofing with insulation is also a great choice if you live in a townhouse and share interior walls with another household. Normally, interior walls in a home are not heavily insulated, if they’re insulated at all. By adding insulation to the interior walls of your townhouse, you’ll provide a sound barrier between your home and the home adjacent to yours.

Maybe you require a soundproof room in your home. If that’s the case, you’ll want to use a type of material made specifically for room soundproofing – a batted material composed of mineral wool, fiberglass and cotton or cellulose. It comes in rigid panel styles, and it should be noted that this insulation was developed specifically for soundproofing purposes, so it isn’t thermally efficient and isn’t made for exterior wall and attic use.

If you’re ready for a little more peace and quiet, then give Standard Insulating Co. a call at  315-738-1424. We’ll be happy to show you how better insulation can help you save money and energy, and can help soundproof your home as well.
