Depending on the number of people in your household, you may be spending more time in the laundry room than you care to. And the fact that home laundry facilities are sometimes relegated to a small room in a less-than-ideal area of the house doesn’t make things any more pleasant. Therefore, to improve the environment in your laundry room, it’s important to install enough suitable insulation.
Here’s what to consider when insulating your laundry room:
An average dryer cycle can add significant humidity and moisture to the air. This moisture in the air is transferred along with heat and can infiltrate your walls. This can pose potential health hazards, as well as damage the walls over time. Sound control also is important for keeping the noise from your washer and dryer from migrating to other rooms.
