Designing a house is easier said than done, as various factors need to be considered to make a dream home. Care has to be taken that the house is properly insulated, so that it conserves energy and your utility bills do not bother you. Moreover, if you feel distracted by the disturbing neighbors, loud noises on the streets or maybe your son playing guitar in the next room gives you sleepless nights, you need sound insulation as well.

Furthermore, it has devastating impacts on the mental and physical health of individuals. Apart from causing dizziness, lack of sleep and impairment, excessive sound is also the reason for bad effects on memory, health and appearance. It may also cause serious health diseases in some cases like heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes among others.

Insulation not only helps in energy conservation but also helps in making the place sound proof.
