Floor Vibrations from 3 smal Motors
« on: December 14, 2005, 12:01:20 AM »
We recently bought and are operating a 15 yr old pellet stove 6 feet away from a shared wall.  It has three sources of vibration, two constant and one intermittant (every few seconds).  Our neighbor can definitely hear the intermittant through floor vibrations and it's driving him crazy.

He says it isn't too bad but it's just noticable to be bothersome.

Our stove is on a slab of granite, on a continuous wood floor, and we are hoping there is something we can put underneath the granite to dampen the noise.  It's probably about 300 lbs altogether.  I was thinking of buying four 4" cork vibration pads to put underneath, will this be enough to stop the vibration from transferring across through the floor?

Vibration Pads with cork centers and neoprene rubber padding on the top and bottom should work well in your sound/vibration situation. Pads are available in 4", 6" ,12" and 18" squares. Properly placed at each corner they will be able to handle the 300 lbs. of weight.
