Best Insulation To Soundproof Your New York Home

Insulation contractor installing blown insulation in a wall.Being comfortable in your own home is paramount. For many, this means creating a quiet and cozy environment, which can be challenging in homes or apartments in densely populated areas like Long Island, NY.

Fortunately, proper insulation improves your home’s energy efficiency and helps with noise reduction and soundproofing.

In this blog post, the experts at Rocket Insulation offer tips for effective soundproofing your home.

Best Sound-Dampening Insulation Options

There are several great insulation options that can help improve the soundproofing of your Long Island property, including:

  • Fiberglass batts: This type of insulation fits well between wall studs and other framing pieces, which stops the transfer of heat and also dampens sound.
  • Mineral wool: This insulation is made of spun rock fibers and metal slag. It’s similar to fiberglass batts but is slightly denser, making it even more effective in dampening sound.
  • Blown-in fiberglass: Because this type of insulation is installed by being “blown in,” it’s ideal for small openings like those between wall studs. Cavities filled with soft, dense insulation dampens sound very well.
  • Blown-in cellulose: Made of recycled newspaper treated for fire and pests, blown-in cellulose insulation is like blown-in fiberglass in the way it’s installed and fills small cavities. It has great thermal performance and good sound-dampening.

Soundproof Your Home With Re-Insulation

As it ages, insulation becomes more compact and less effective. If your energy costs are rising or your home’s soundproofing is no longer effective, it’s a great idea to retrofit your home’s insulation.

Here are the most common signs it’s time to re-insulate your home:

  • Your home or property is older and was never insulated.
  • Your insulation has visible damage.
  • There are drafts or uneven temperatures throughout your home.
  • You notice more noise throughout your home or apartment.

Experienced professionals like those at Rocket Insulation can examine your home, commercial property or apartment building to determine if you have adequate insulation for effective soundproofing.

We can then help you identify which insulation type is right for your property, needs and budget.
