I just read an article about how to cut noise pollution at home and it got me thinking about what ways everyone here is using to stop that sound from seeping through the doors and windows. What is your strategy?
Noise pollution as in trying to keep outside noise from seeping into your home, or trying to contain your own noise so you don't bother anyone else? I get annoyed at barking dogs when their owners let them bark all day, but I installed shutters that you close from outside and it helps some.
Whether it's keeping my noise in or the outside noise out, I've never actually bothered with any of it. I guess it really hasn't been a problem for me. Some days I play my music loud but none of my neighbors have ever complained. Of course they also play loud music or have parties once in a while and I don't complain either.
I don't seem to have a problem with inside or outside sounds. Sometimes the neighbors down the street have a yelling match but I just shut the door and it gets muffled. We don't play our house music at deafening levels, however in the car is another story.
