Different floors throughout a home require different types of insulation. Floors that should be insulated in a home include: the floor above a garage, the floor above a basement, basement floors, the floor above a crawl space, the floor above a cantilever, and more. Adding insulation to these floors can make your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
Adding insulation to a floor means an entire home will enjoy better protection from sound penetration. Soundproofing with floor insulation can mean that less noise travels from room to room, between floors, and even from the exterior to the interior. This can be especially important if your house is located in a noisier location.
