Life is loud and continues to get noisier. Home life is changing, so for many of us, sound dampening is more important than ever before. Inside and around your home, there are constant noises. Televisions, home theatres, computers and video games blare from almost every room. Family cell phones are a constant extension of the external world that ring or buzz, making it even louder. Now more than ever is the time to have a nice, peaceful home that can tune out.
Did you know that home insulation can do more than keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer? With the right choice, insulation can help to transform your home into a quiet retreat and sanctuary, a place we love to come home to.
If you have the opportunity to re-insulate your home, sound-proofing insulation is an excellent choice to escape the everyday hustle and bustle. Stone wool insulation, for example, is a top choice for professionals including recording studios where all external noises need to be blocked. It is an excellent acoustic barrier that actually absorbs the sound. If you would like the same quality in your home, retailers point to a performance tested product called, Roxul Safe 'n' Sound stone wool insulation. It provides higher sound absorption against low frequency (bass) ranges that other types of insulation struggle to block. For the best soundproofing results - and for ultimate peace and quiet - install the stone wool insulation in your home theatre, basements, home office, laundry room, furnace room and even in the washrooms.
