Although the potential to lower your energy bills is one of the most significant advantages of installing insulation, there are a variety of other benefits, including soundproofing. If you live in a noisy area, insulation can help reduce outside sounds.

Do All Types of Insulation Reduce Noise?
Insulation reduces the transmission of sound from one area by creating a barrier that absorbs vibrations between the sources of the noise and surrounding areas. However, not all types of insulation reduce outside noise.
Cellulose and fiberglass insulation are great choices if you are interested in the soundproofing benefits of insulation. These types of insulation reduce outside sounds as well as sounds between different levels of your home. Fiberglass and cellulose can be installed in walls, floors and ceilings.
On the other hand, reflective insulation such as radiant barrier works by reflecting radiant heat from the sun. It’s installed in the attic, right under the roof, which keeps your home comfortable (but doesn’t act as a sound barrier at all).
