There are two common types of insulation: thermal insulation, which reduces the flow of heat in and out of your home; and acoustic insulation, which reduces the transmission of noise from one room or area to another.
Thermal insulation refers to materials or systems used to restrict heat from escaping or entering an enclosed area. It can be used to keep a container, room or building warm — or keep it cool.
There are many different types of thermal insulators. They work by addressing one or more of the three mechanisms of heat transfer: conduction, convection and radiation. The physical properties of the insulation material determine the capacity of the material to reduce the flow of heat. Thermal insulators are given an R value to indicate how well they perform.
Also known as soundproofing or noise control, acoustic insulation refers to the materials or methods used to reduce the transmission of noise from one room or enclosed area to another.
The purpose of acoustic insulation is to improve sound quality within an enclosed area and reduce the leakage of sound from one place to another. Acoustic insulation can also be used to reduce echoes, resonances and reverberations.
