Soundproofing Home Appliances

Soundproofing Home Appliances
December 07, 2018

There’s no question that as great as home appliances are, they are also noisy. Sometimes, that noise means there is something wrong, but often, it is just the sound of a machine doing its work. Soundproofing home appliances can create a much more tranquil home environment, but is it really possible to soundproof home appliances?

How Loud Are Your Appliances

How to Soundproof Home Appliances

You can definitely soundproof home appliances with the right material and the right approach. Two types of home appliances that are among the noisiest and are actually easy to soundproof are refrigerators and dishwashers:

1. How to Soundproof a Dishwasher

First, of course, turn off the dishwasher and unplug it for your safety. Then simply remove the front panel of the dishwasher, and place a Soundproof Cow Quiet Board™ Acoustic Panel in between the front panel and the dishwasher. Screw the panel back into place and enjoy a quieter dishwasher experience!

You may also want to replace the soundproof insulating blanket that comes with your dishwasher, as this can tend to wear out quickly and offer little sound control assistance.

2. How to Soundproof a Refrigerator

To soundproof a refrigerator, you will not be applying soundproofing to the refrigerator itself, but rather to the alcove that the refrigerator sits in. Simply install a reliable soundproofing product like Echo Absorber Natural all around the refrigerator, on the top, sides, back and possibly even the floor of the alcove where the refrigerator is located to enjoy significantly reduced refrigerator noise.

Benefits of Soundproofing Home Appliances

Once you’ve soundproofed your refrigerator, dishwasher and other appliances, you’ll see the benefits right away. Often, your noisiest appliances are in the same room, like the kitchen or laundry room, so when you’ve got them all going at the same time, it can be impossible to even hear yourself think. Good soundproofing can make a world of difference.

Noise control in the kitchen can also help you enjoy clearer communication even when appliances are running, which is ideal for family bonding. Also, once you’ve soundproofed your appliances so that their standard noise is muffled, you may have an easier time noticing when an appliance is making noise because something is wrong.
