Business Needing to Muffle Sound from Machine Room

Machine room update

Location: Albany, OR


After some remodeling work, the compressor in the basement was now louder than it had been in the office areas. They found us online and called for an evaluation.


Our Energy Consultant met with them and then investigated the space. He originally suggested closed-cell spray foam insulation to help with the sound muffling. Yet, because there would be a lot of preparation work to tape off pipes, and the fire sprinkler system would not be able to be covered, the decision was made to add R-49 fiberglass batting to the ceiling of the machine room, which is the underfloor of the office spaces.
