Soundproof your way to quiet relaxation in your home


(NC)—The modern family home is not usually quiet. Whether it's the sound of the TV, stereo, computer or video game, finding a quiet space away from the noise can be a challenge, and now that temperatures are beginning to drop, your family will be spending more time indoors. Thankfully, there's a way to reduce your home's noise level.

“Household noise can become overwhelming and cause strain on a family, especially for those families with parents that work from home and need peace and quiet to concentrate,” says David Flood, insulation expert at Owens Corning. “To help reduce overall noise levels and contain sounds to a single room, try using insulation that is specifically engineered to help with noise control.”

Designed to keep noise out, EcoTouchTM QuietZone PINKTM FIBERGLAS® Acoustic Insulation will help prevent noise from travelling around the house. Creating a quieter home and taking a moment to get away from the chaos of everyday life may help you reduce stress, improve your mood and allow you to regroup after a busy day.

In addition to being friendly to your ears, Owens Corning's QuietZone acoustic insulation is made with EcoTouch PINK FIBERGLAS with PureFiber technology, a sustainable product that is made with 99% natural* materials and over 70** per cent recycled content, SCS certified, the highest amount of recycled content in the industry. Third party GreenGuard Indoor Air Quality CertifiedSM and is verified to be formaldehyde-free†.
