Is Styrofoam a Good Insulator?

does-thermocol-reduce-noise

No matter what we do or where we go, having good insulation is one of the most important things in our lives, and most of the time we aren’t even aware of it.

It will always be crucial to keep our homes warm in winter and cool in summer, then our offices and other public areas and of course ourselves.

As we all know, the more layers we have warmer we will feel and the reason behind this is pure physics – the air is a bad conductor of heat.

By wearing many layers more air is trapped within them and since air cannot conduct warmth it automatically stays around us.

This is exactly why Styrofoam presents amazing insulation – it is composed mostly of air which makes up around 98% of it, creating a perfect barrier between the object that it insulates and the surrounding area.

soundproof boat engine

My mind has been changed, though not entirely, by relatively recent events. My family and I were invited to go on a friend’s boat, out into the water to cruise and have fun.

My husband was loving every moment, acting like he was going to buy about 4 different boats as soon as we got back. My kids loved it even more, somehow, taking photos and just having a blast.

Then the noise became noticeable. An ungodly, core-shaking level of loudness that nearly ruined it for me.

I kept thinking about suggesting various solutions and ways to mitigate this to the boat’s owner. Let’s go into them now.
