How Every Home Can Attain Natural Soundproofing

Soundproofing seems like a complex idea requiring additional equipment or extra installation. However, with natural soundproofing, you can introduce peace and tranquillity back into the home. There are simple steps that you can take to reduce the sound levels coming into the home, which is especially helpful when living in busy areas and metro cities.

Soundproofed homes allow residents to get restful sleep so that they’re energized for the next day. They also create a more comfortable environment for family members to share quality moments.

Installing uPVC windows in your home

The best way to have soundproofing done in your home is to install soundproof windows. Quality dealers, like AIS Windows, have uPVC windows that cut out external sound. Acoustic glazing reduces sound intrusion by up to 42 dB, allowing residents to have a more peaceful living experience.

Additionally, these glass windows allow for thermal insulation which reduces the load on cooling systems. You won’t need to turn on the AC for long periods of time and receive quality sound insulation at the same instance. That’s what makes this multifaceted glass type a popular one in modern Indian homes.

Heavier curtains across glass windows

Having heavier curtains naturally cuts out a large portion of the sound coming into the home. When you have your windows closed, there may be some sound that enters inside. Curtains absorb much of that sound pollution, giving you an ambient space to live in.

Curtains are also a great aesthetical addition to any home. They’re available in a variety of designs and styles and can be used against any backdrop of any wall. They blend in perfectly with any home and are being designed by multiple brands.

Plug sound leaks in your home

Sound leaks are gaps in the framing or the infrastructure that allow for sound to travel between indoor and outdoor environments. It can be less than an inch-wide but can create a pathway for air and sound to travel between barriers freely. It’s best to use drywall or to cover these gaps as they can become sound leaks.

You may have to start from walls that are facing the outside environment and start plugging away. Although it’s a temporary solution, it can be effective when done properly. You can find sound leaks across the house, if necessary, and work with a longer-term solution like acoustic windows.
