Air condition is a handy thing that nowadays every household has. They are basically not that noisy, but sometimes they might hit your nerve in the matter of second.
That’s not all. They often annoy your neighbors as well. So, don’t be surprised if you see your neighbors knocking on your door cause of your old AC system.
Even though they are quite welcome during the summer, they are popular for generating a lot of noise as well. This relates mostly to some older models.
When it comes to new models, they are kind of better insulated and a lot quieter.
With that said, you should probably look for some new AC, but only if every other soundproofing method fails.
Now, I will talk a bit more about soundproofing your current air conditioner. Frankly, there are few effective ways of soundproofing it, but if it fails, you can always search for a newer version that runs (as we explained) a lot quieter.
Let’s get straight to the point and see all of the possible solutions.Continue reading
This is the latest innovation in car manufacturing. An acoustic windshield is designed to minimize the noise you hear while driving.
Regardless of what is around you, this windshield will limit the noise level and help you enjoy a quiet and safe driving experience.
It is made of additional layers of insulation that are soundproof. In between these layers, there are two additional layers. One is a standard Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and the other one is made of acoustic PVB. This helps make the cabin of the vehicle very quiet.Continue reading
We live in a place where natural disasters are not unknown, and they often lead to power outages.
Well, now, no one likes to be left in dark, is it right? And for that reason, power generators might come in very handy to us.
They are often used during and after power outages, while we are waiting for everything to get back on its feet again.
Subsequently, another inconvenience might show up. Generators can be very loud.
Just imagine the situation: a natural catastrophe occurs; there is an almost inevitable power outage; you are already frustrated and irritated enough, but you have remembered that you have a power generator in your house; so you find it, turn it on, and it starts buzzing like crazy.

Like everyone who has a nice and cozy backyard, I liked enjoying it ever since I moved into the suburbs. It was so nice to have a morning coffee in my favorite chair next to the pool or to read a book in a hammock.
However, the suburb started developing very fast, and the traffic got crazy in no time.
I feel like I just woke up one morning, and that my cozy little backyard was just taken away from me in seconds.
I started hating spending any time there, and I thought that I had made a mistake when I persuaded my husband to move into the suburb from a big city. It seemed all the same to me.
However, there was no use in hiding in the house. I wanted to try and find a solution. I wanted my backyard back no matter what it takes.
I found some solutions. Most of them have a lot to do with choosing the right fence.

CPAP machines or Continuous Positive Air Pressure Machines are machines that are used in therapy of sleep apnea.
Patients would wear a face mask that is connected to a pump that provides a natural flow of air into the nasal passages during sleep in order to keep the airway properly opened.
There are a lot of people who suffer from sleep apnea these days but are not diagnosed or do nothing about it. There is much less of those people who actually take some action and use a CPAP machine.
One of the reasons could be that these machines can be very loud and sometimes they don’t just affect you, but your partner or roommate as well.
All of the sucking noises and whistling noises coming from the air in a CPAP machine can be very unpleasant when you want to sleep at night.
Since these machines are meant to help you sleep better, but they are not due to the noise, here are a few tricks that you can use to make them quieter.Continue reading
Ceiling fans are handy things to have in your home. Unlike air conditions that are (some say) unhealthy and leave the unpleasant smell in the air, ceiling fans are more natural than anything else.
Now, it’s kind of annoying sitting in your restroom after a hard work, enjoying the silence, falling asleep and then boom! You suddenly hear some clicking, rattling and grinding noise coming from above your head.
On the first look it’s kind of bearable and you just ignore it, but after a while, you realize that you can’t actually ignore that sound and that it goes louder and louder every moment.
By blowing the air, they can cool you pretty well. Now, the problem with these ones is that over time they become sloppy and somewhat noisy.
Well, they get weighted down by dust, or simply become rusty since they are constantly spinning. That results in a lot of rattling and squeaking noise that not many can bear during hot summer.
Luckily for you, a lot of problems can be solved through the cleaning and maintenance routine. Solving squeaking noise problems isn’t that hard, but there are some other problems that can take a bit serious measures to fix.Continue reading

If you are living in the apartment, the main problem should not be neighbors from beneath, but from upstairs. Sometimes, the noise is so loud that you can’t sleep or function normal.
