When you’re trying to relax in the comfort of your own home, the last thing that you want to hear is all the noise going on outside. From home construction to cars passing by to busy city streets, today’s houses are noisier than ever! If this is the case for you, you’re probably looking for the best option to soundproof your home. Keep reading to learn more about how insulating your home can help make your home much quieter. 

What is Insulation?

Insulation is a material used to insulate something, such as a building or a home. Most commonly, insulation works by slowing conductive heat flow and convective heat flow.  Installing the proper home insulation can help to make your home more energy efficient, while also significantly lowering your monthly energy bills. 

Can Insulation Reduce Noise in Your Home?

To answer your question, yes, insulation can help to reduce noise inside your home. Although installing insulation for soundproofing purposes is beneficial for any home, it is extremely beneficial for those who live in a city or high-traffic areas where noises tend to be a lot louder. 

By creating a barrier between the source of noise and adjacent areas and absorbing vibrations, insulation can help to effectively reduce noise in your home. Not all insulation types work for soundproofing. Below you can read more about the best types of insulation for soundproofing your home. 

What is the Best Type of Insulation to Soundproof Your Home?

If you are looking to use insulation as a way to soundproof your home, fiberglass, cellulose, and spray foam insulation are all great options. Open-cell spray foam insulation is one of the best types of insulation to help reduce noise throughout your home. The reason for this is because, unlike fiberglass insulation, spray foam can easily fill all of the small cracks, gaps, and crevices in the wall, absorbing sound waves and blocking out all unwanted sounds. 

What are the Other Benefits of Adding Insulation to Your Home?

Soundproofing your home is not the only purpose that adding insulation to your home serves. Although insulating your home might sound like a hassle, there are many benefits to insulating your home, including the following: 

  • Increases comfort in your home
  • Decreases cost of monthly energy bills 
  • Helps to reduce your carbon footprint on the planet
  • Helps to reduce the likelihood of water and mold issues by controlling moisture levels in the home
  • Protects your home against rodents and other pests
  • Increases the value of your home
