Sound Insulation, Soundproof Batts, and Acoustic Batts — it goes by many names. Acoustic Insulation is a special insulating material type that offers soundproofing and thermal resistance. Thermal insulation also offers sound screening up to some extent, but less effective than sound insulation.
Acoustic Insulation density: The R-value is the factor that determines the efficiency of thermal insulation. Anyway, we don't talk about an R-value for acoustic batts. The density is the factor that determines the efficiency of acoustic batts. An interesting fact: material thickness doesn't necessarily increase or decrease the density. So, a thin acoustic batt may have a higher density than a thick one.
Where to install sound insulation?: This insulating material is useful for homes near highways and in industrial areas. Outside noise can enter your home and create a “disturbing environment.” Also, this insulation creates a quieter home by isolating rooms.
- Between the floors: Homes in Australia don't comprise concrete slabs/floors. So, sound can travel from floor to floor. Office and commercial building managers should consider this factor for creating a peaceful working environment for employees. Installing sound insulation ensures soundproofing, also; thermal resistance.
- Internal walls: Is your bedroom is just next to the multimedia room? Installing this special insulation type within internal walls of studios, bedrooms, bathrooms, and laundries is an additional investment for a quieter home and isolated rooms. Occupants living in each section of your home can do what they do peacefully.
- External walls: Long-term exposure to outside noises can stress you out. As mentioned, if your house is next to a highway or in an industrial area; installing soundproof batts on/within external walls will minimize noises. In other words, no matter where you live; close to a highway or in an industrial area, you can sleep peacefully.
Noise exposure side effects in detail: Raising your stress levels, reducing life quality, and disrupting your sleep patterns are the top side effects of exposure to continuous noise/sounds. Doctors and psychologists across the world have identified these side effects. Are you stressing out at your home for no reason? Do you live close to a highway or in an industrial area? The continuous exposure to outside noises could be the reason behind your stress issue. It can lower your quality of life secretly. Investing money in acoustic batts is the best and long-term solution to resolve the issue.
