Soundproofing Your Home
Insulation creates a practical barrier to reducing outside noise levels. The best materials for soundproofing are cellulose, fiberglass, or foam insulation. You can install these products in the walls, ceilings, or floors, reducing noises from the outdoors and room-to-room noise.
Loud noises are almost impossible to tune out. They can raise your blood pressure, lead to headaches, and cause fatigue—even hearing loss, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Your solution is to soundproof your home.

Wall Insulation Upgrades
Companies use Sound Transmission Class (STC) ratings to determine how effective a floor or wall is in resisting sound. An interior wall between living spaces, for example, should have an STC of at least 36.17, according to the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA).
The higher the number, the better the soundproofing. Bedroom walls should have an STC rating of at least 52—while living rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens should be around 56. Key areas to install sound insulation include:
- Exterior Walls—Your exterior walls provide a front line of defense against outside noise pollution. As stated above, these walls should have an STC rating of not less than 36.17.
- Interior Walls—Your interior walls between living spaces should have a similar STC rating of around 36 as your exterior walls.
Don’t forget your ductwork! Your Redmond air ducts provide the perfect conduit for carrying sounds. Insulating your ducts reduces energy loss and cuts down unwanted noises. Sealing the joints in your air ducts will also improve noise levels.
Road/Traffic Noise Reduction
Do you live near a bustling downtown or commercial corridor? Does it sometimes seem like motorists want to honk their horns whenever they drive past your home?
Adding a healthy layer of spray foam insulation to your exterior way is an excellent way to keep out traffic noise. Fiberglass also works—but spray foam fills every crevice in the wall cavity, blocking out all unwanted sounds.
Insulate Your Home Against Noisy Neighbors
It might be a barking dog. Or a really loud teenager. Either way, HomeRx and Performance Insulation Energy Services has acoustical solutions to keep you on good terms with your noisy neighbors.
Along with insulating your walls, install soundproofing curtains that are woven with thermal insulation to soak up noise and block light from entering your home. A more subtle strategy is to add a little white noise, such as a running fan. You won’t block out a leaf blower, but it could help with the loud music!
Sealing cracks around windows and doors keep out the cold weather—and reduces loud noises. Adding soundproof windows with an STC rating of at least 48 will effectively reduce outdoor sounds.
