Why Choose Acoustic Insulation for Soundproofing Your Home

A home is a place to unwind and escape the stress and complexities of the outside world. Unfortunately, that kind of peace is not always possible in all homes. If the walls of your home are too thin or not properly insulated, traffic sounds, pedestrian noise, and other commotion from outside can easily disturb your serenity. While it is hard to escape from all the noise and clamour, it is possible to reduce the disturbance by installing acoustic insulation and soundproofing your home. 

Here’s how Acoustic Insulation works.

Acoustic insulation or soundproofing involves adding thick layers of insulating material to the walls, ceiling, and floor. It reduces the capacity of sound waves to travel through objects and prevents noise from outside from coming inside and vice versa. The more insulating material you add, the weaker the external sound gets. 

Benefits of Acoustic Insulation

Acoustic insulation is the best way of soundproofing your home for several reasons. It involves installing batts made of mineral wool or fibreglass between studs of walls, cavity walls, timber, and metal-framed walls, to reduce the transmission of air and sound through them. Once installed, it can benefit the homeowner in the following ways:

  • Better Privacy

Acoustic insulation is the best way to soundproof your home as it prevents outside noise from coming and the noise inside from going out. It provides much better privacy in the house and within individual rooms. 

  • Warmer Home

Ultimately, acoustic insulation is a type of insulation. Apart from making your home soundproof, its primary purpose is to keep it warmer for longer. As there is a reduced transfer of sound and heat, your home will be able to stay warm and cosy in winters and cooler during summers. 

  • Improved Energy Efficiency

The longer your home stays warm during winters, the lesser will be your energy consumption. Installing acoustic insulation will help maintain warmer temperatures for longer, thereby reducing your dependence on heating and cutting your energy costs. 

  • Increased Property Value

Installing acoustic insulation can add good value to your property, whether a flat or a house. A soundproof home and energy-efficient will have better market value than the ones that do not have these features. It is especially true if the house is located in the city, on the main road or busy street, near a railway station, or an airport. 

Installing appropriate insulation is the first step towards making your home more comfortable and efficient.
