Your Peace Of Mind With Soundproof Insulation
You long to live the quiet life. But the biggest obstacle to achieving your dream is, ironically, you own home. Whether it’s surrounded by noisy neighbors and street traffic, or is itself the source of your noise problem with knocking pipes and thin interior walls, your escape from the madding crowds is not performing as you would like. And you’d like a solution, preferably as soon as possible.
One of the easiest ways to make your home more appealing is by adding soundproof insulation. Soundproof insulation will not only provide you with the restful, welcoming haven that you’ve always imagined a home should be; it will increase your property value. And the chances are good that it will the home life of everyone in your family. Why?
A Happy Family
Soundproof insulation will drastically reduce the friction between the adults annoyed by loud music being played and the teenagers who are playing it. Soundproofing insulation will keep private conversations from being overheard when curious ears are listening. Soundproofing insulation will let other family members sleep in when someone has to set his sort her alarm for an early morning awakening, shower, and exit. Soundproof insulation, in other words, will make the close quarters of your home just a little less intimate.
One of the overlooked benefits of soundproof insulation is that it will add to your home’s energy efficiency. Soundproof insulation is, in most cases, acoustic foam injected into your home’s walls through opening in the attic. By expanding to fill every gap in the wall, like those around electrical outlets, it will both provide an extremely tight barrier against heat loss in the winter, and keep warm air out in the summer. You can expect your soundproof insulating to pay for itself eventually in the savings on your home’s energy costs.
If You’re Building A Home
If you’re planning a new home, you can safe yourself from unwanted noise by having soundproof insulation installed at the construction stage. You’ll have to wait until all the plumbing and electrical wiring is complete; then fiberglass batting will be fitted on the walls. The quality of the soundproofing will depend on the thickness of the insulation used.
Soundproofing is also available in pre-made wall coverings which are more expensive than soundproof insulation, and not as effective at lowering energy costs. If you are interested in soundproof insulation for your existing or future home, your best bet is to contact a soundproof insulation contractor who can determine the best solution for your needs.
