Do you have a noisy home? In a busy hub like Washington, DC, it's no secret that noise can be a big issue. Home Energy Medics specializes in strategic home upgrades that are designed to reduce excessive noise infiltration.
MORE THAN JUST EFFICIENCY
DC area homeowners who are interested in boosting energy efficiency know that insulation plays a huge role in reducing energy bills and boosting home comfort. When it comes to the benefits of insulation, efficiency is just one part of the puzzle.
It's no secret that DC living can be noisy at times, especially considering noise pollution brought on by traffic and prevalent sirens. For those who are light sleepers or individuals who work from home, peace and quiet is not only nice—it's necessary. Fortunately, properly insulating your home can be the solution you're looking for, both in terms of energy efficiency and noise reduction.
IMPACT NOISE VS. ACOUSTIC NOISE
There are two major types of noise that can be prevalent within the home—impact noise and acoustic noise. Impact noise comes from what it sounds like, typically in the form of footsteps from above. It can be a real problem in split-level homes and apartments, and it's very common. Acoustic noise is different--it is the ambient noise that travels through walls and floors without any actual impact occurring (think music, talking, etc.).
Many people make the mistake of thinking that both impact and acoustic noise can be treated in the same way, but this is typically not the case. Impact noise in particular can be much harder to treat, which is why it's essential to work with a team of professionals with extensive soundproofing experience.

Just looking for additional insulation in your attic or sealing up air leaks? Did you know that making certain changes to your home can result in unforeseen consequences? That is why we always recommend a full home energy audit by Home Energy Medics prior to implementing any efficiency measures. This will provide a full view of your house, it's systems and what can be done to improve ALL areas of your home. Best of all, we refund all or part of the audit cost when you choose to have us implement the solutions.
Home Energy Medics did a wonderful job on our house. We now have much better heating and cooling. The original audit was very revealing of heat leakage points throughout the house. I had no idea that recessed lighting "cans" could leak so much outside air into the house.
