You don’t want to spend time worrying about how loud you’re being, and whether your neighbours can hear you – particularly in flats and apartments, or semi-detached and terraced houses, where your walls back directly onto those of your neighbours.
Effectively Reduce Sound In Your Home
You can reduce sound through walls be that from the inside out, or vice versa: without installing expensive soundproofing solutions akin to a recording suite!
Professional soundproofing equipment that you see in cinemas, performance rooms and recording studios is normally in the form of foam or plastic panels that are stuck onto walls and ceilings, with the aim of absorbing noise, and blocking it from passing through.
It can be expensive both to procure, and have installed, and is not particularly ‘homely’ as aesthetics go, making it unsuitable for the home environment.
Instead, there is a multi-functional product on the market that can offer efficient soundproofing properties, as well as a range of additional benefits to boot.
Spray foam insulation is an industrial foam that is injected into, or sprayed onto, a surface, and was designed as an insulation product. Its density and chemical make-up means that it acts perfectly as a domestic, soundproofing material, preventing over 40% of noise from passing through walls and ceilings.
Unlike bulky pads stuck to a wall, spray foam is a white foam that dries out, and does not attract dust. In most properties, it will be injected into a wall or ceiling cavity, so sits behind the existing wall, and does not detract from your home’s interior design.
In the case of no empty cavity being available, it can be sprayed directly onto a wall or ceiling surface, and then covered. The covering over it need only be a couple of inches out, and then can be decorated as you so desire.
As an insulation product, spray foam insulation creates a total seal from both air and moisture.
This will result in a noticeable increase in temperature immediately, maintaining a more comfortable temperature throughout the home, even in the coldest or rainiest of weather! Spray foam is the ‘go-to’ product for home insulation in colder climes such as Canada, Norway and Finland.
Cheaper Energy Bills
Once the property’s temperature is more comfortable, you’ll rely less and less on external appliances to keep it heated.
Customers who already have spray foam insulation installed report savings of up to 50% on their energy bills – which means that in a 2-3 bed standard sized home in the UK, the product and installation will have covered its own costs in ROI within just 3 years!
