Insulating Existing Interior Walls


MAD King, I see looking at your other posts that you are from Germany? Welcome to the forums! "Dense-packing" cellulose is an installation procedure when insulating; http://www.karg.com/pdf/Insulaton_de...and_Biddle.pdf

It would help us in helping you if; you could explain why your interior walls need insulating. Is it for sound, to muffle noises/talking from one room to another? What is the sound source- stereo music, etc.? We need more information to help you reach the goal, but we need to know the "goal" first.

Gary

First let me thank you for the excellent link.

Second it is for soundproof and the sound it TV and sometimes talking. Even quiet talking. I am maybe a little bit sensitive with that.

You're welcome. I did a quick search on our forum, in the white-colored search box at the top of each page; http://www.diychatroom.com/search.php?searchid=3952689

We also have a resident sound-proofing pro on hand, perhaps he will chime in...

Here is some info to read while waiting; http://www.stcratings.com/assemblies.html

You wouldn't want to pack insulation for soundproofing purposes. Any packed / dense insulation will allow conduction of the vibration. Exactly what we're looking to avoid.

Best to look at some decoupled mass. That would make a big difference. Even on its best day insulation doesn't add a lot.

@Gary

the first link gives me this back:

Code:
Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.


Bookmarked the other links.

@Ted

decoupled mass means that I have to re-do all the walls to separate them

Decoupling would mean a re-do, yes. Decoupling is a big aspect of sound isolated systems.

you need to decide what you want to do first. I clearly asked for thermal or sound, and you said both, but that wasn't the question. So you were given the best solution to get a little of both, then switch it and say you just want soundproofing.

If you would truly like good, useful, and applicable advice, we need to know what you are trying to accomplish!

I think after reading the links from Ted I will go with the recoupling method. Should be that difficult for one room.
