The modern life we live today mostly consists of rushing from point A to point B completing either this or that task. It’s always rushing through crowded streets jammed with people. And, it’s not the people that make you all edgy, but it’s the noise they make.
As a consequence, there is no better feeling than getting home and enjoying the cosiness and silence of your own apartment.
However, if you are among the unlucky living creatures out there, you know that sometimes this is not the case. The only worse thing than the noise created by people is having this, or any other, noise repeated multiple times over.

An above-door vent is a nice way to increase air-flow inside of your home, which helps to keep the temps down and save on energy bills. This is a reason that many homes may have these vents as part of their interior design.
While this seems nice for some, there is a big issue with above-door vents: just as much as they help to disperse temperatures, they also let in a bunch of noise from either side of the door. To many, the amount of noise that you get from these vents outweighs any benefits that you can possibly get from them, and the need to soundproof above-door vents becomes a necessity.
Seeing that you are reading this article, it is safe to assume that you want to soundproof as noisy above-door vent of your own. If that is the case, then these methods will help you to block out the noise from the vent and live in peace!Continue reading

It takes either a writer or a mother to appreciate the peace and quiet of a house.
Fortunately, I’m both. I can understand moms and dads doing some cleaning around the house while their kids are asleep. We want the work to be done quickly and without disturbing our kids while their asleep.
Also, we try our best to schedule cleaning hours at a time when it’s least disturbing to the elderly in our house or our neighbors.
One lousy vacuum cleaner with nagging sounds can spoil our plans of a quiet evening for our kids and the neighbors. Sure, we do everything in our powers to hush the sound. Sometimes, that costs us a lot of money.
But what if I told you an easy way around the problem?
Choose best quiet vacuum cleaners to begin with. If you’re lacking the motivation to do some research, I’ve got just the list for you. I’ve also explained my reasons for choosing the brands and models on the list. Let’s get to it.Continue reading

“Live and let live.” This is a code that I live by.
My code extends to non-humans as well. Be it my pet dogs or fishes in the nice big aquarium I have in my living room, I strive to make life a bit better for them each day.
That’s why I’m a vocal advocate of installing air pumps in aquariums.
For those of you who don’t know, air pumps are devices that create a water current in fish tanks and oxygenate the water by infusing air particles in the process.
This helps fishes by mitigating their oxygen demands. Some air pumps even run additional devices like under-gravel filters and decorative objects.
But, there’s a problem. As these machines run on motors, these can be noisy at times. Add to that the casing which vibrates constantly creating an engine-like sound.
To solve this problem and to keep our fish buddies in a healthy environment, let’s discuss some of the quietest aquarium air pumps with sound masking technology.
In this article, I’ll be reviewing the top 5 contenders and telling you why I chose them in the first place. Take the maintenance tips at the end as a bonus. Let’s dive in!Continue reading
