Insulation Contractors, Can Insulation Help with Noise Control?

Quality Insulation Contractors pride themselves on not only being able to make a home more energy efficient, but also more comfortable. Part of home comfort is not just temperature — it also includes air quality and noise.

Can Insulation help with noise control? Yes. Airborne noises such as conversation, running appliances, electronic devices and household equipment carry and echo through walls, ceilings and floors. Good insulation can reduce such atmospheric interference, leaving rooms much quieter and occupants happier.

According to, insulating your home can reduce the noise from outside your house as well as make it harder for pollen, dust, pests and insects to enter your home. It also allows for better humidity control and may lower the chance for ice dams on the roof/eves in snowy climates. In addition to keeping the noise levels low, this will also improve the overall comfort of your home.

It may be shocking to learn, but noise pollution negatively affects the lives of millions of people. The EPA explains that “Studies have shown that there are direct links between noise and health.  Problems related to noise include stress related illnesses, high blood pressure, speech interference, hearing loss, sleep disruption, and lost productivity.” Noise pollution is defined as an unwanted to disturbing noise. It can interfere with sleeping, conversation or quality of life. Since the air around us is constantly filled with sounds, it makes sense to reduce the annoyance factor to improve one’s overall health. Having insulation contractors, like Star Companies install sound reducing insulation is an affordable way to do this.
