cellulose, insulation batts, or nothing
« on: May 14, 2001, 01:31:28 AM »
I have a lathe and plaster ceiling.  In addition to the measures described on this site, Iwould like to know should I fill the space between the ceiling and the upper floor with:
a. blown cellulose insulation?
b. tear down the lathe and plaster and fill the space with insulation batts? or
c. leave the air space and add the soundproofing system to the lathe and plaster only?

This prove worthless, if what people who have done it tells us is true.
: b. tear down the lathe and plaster and fill the space with insulation batts? or
Again, this will be worthless, too
: c. leave the air space and add the soundproofing system to the lathe and plaster only?
I doubt this will work either- the problem is the plaster, it should be removed and the ceiling built out as described in our article on using resilient channel and soundproofing materials.

I have read conflicting information regarding blown-in cellulose for soundproofing purposes Ie: ceiling/wall.
www.betterinsulation.com reports that styrofoam & cellulose are effective methods.
however, customaudio.freeserve.co.uk.
reports that styrofoam is ineffective.
has anyone actually tried either ?
