Soundproof Insulation in Wake Forest, NC
What are the benefits of soundproof insulation?
The best way to reduce noise in your home is to have high quality, professionally installed sound insulation. Loud neighbors, traffic, and airplanes flying over your home can be significantly reduced or even blocked out with the proper insulation. Good sound blocking insulation has both a solid thermal value as well as acoustic insulation properties so that it can accomplish the tasks of noise reduction and insulation at the same time. Blown-in fiberglass and cellulose are some of the best materials for sound absorption since they have excellent soundproofing qualities in addition to providing high thermal resistance. It is also critical to any soundproofing job that any gaps between the wall framing studs and joists are well insulated since sound waves travel through the air and any remaining air pockets will allow sound to get through. Acoustic batts made of mineral wool insulation are also a top choice for soundproof insulation. Acoustic batts are specifically made to control sound and are slightly different from typical mineral wool insulation batts. The acoustic batts are awesome when it comes to sound absorption. As always, no gaps or voids should be left when the insulation is installed since gaps will decrease both sound reduction and thermal properties of the insulation.
Do I need commercial soundproofing for my business?
Commercial sound insulation is also ideal for apartment buildings, hotels, offices, schools and other locations. Acoustic insulation also significantly increases privacy and promotes harmony among residents of an apartment or guest of a hotel by reducing noise transmission and complaints. There is nothing worse for one’s health than not getting a good night’s sleep and sleep can easily be disrupted by loud music from neighbors within the building or footsteps from the floor above. Interrupted sleep can increase stress levels and contribute to lowered performance at work as well as a lower quality of life. Reducing noise in an office or school is also critical for privacy reasons and for benefiting the focus and concentration of the workers or students. Sound insulation for commercial buildings will help your company or school by increasing occupant satisfaction and focus, protecting privacy, and reducing noise transmission.
