The goal of the Residential Sound Insulation Program is to noticeably reduce the amount of noise that enters each home. While no home can be completely “sound-proofed,” the quality of life in your home can improve.

In addition, homeowners benefit from increased energy savings and, in some cases, there are reduced maintenance costs on new window and door products as a result of the sound insulation improvements.

Best of all, there is no cost for the sound insulation treatments. Specific FAA approved sound insulation improvements are determined by existing sound-insulating characteristics of your home. We acknowledge that the best solution for your home may not be the same solution as your neighbor’s home. We will, however, treat every home as if it is our own. This is why our team of program professionals will be working with each homeowner individually.

Improvements may include:

  • Upgrading windows and doors.
  • Caulking and weather-stripping doors and windows.
  • Increasing attic insulation.
  • Improving air ventilation or air conditioning systems.

The program only covers improvements that reduce noise levels in your home.  Structural repairs, maintenance items, rehabilitation work, abatement of hazardous materials, environmental remediation, and weatherization not directly related to sound reduction is not part of this program.
