Acoustical Treatment Brings Tidings of Comfort and Joy on ASI Blogs

Acoustical Solutions Reflects on This Year's News of Rising Noise Levels in Public and Private Spaces

Richmond, VA December 14, 2012


2012 saw increased media attention on the issue of rising noise levels in public facilities such as hospitals, schools, restaurants, as well as in urban residences. Outlets such as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and even The Today Show produced stories on the negative and noisy effects of new design trends and increasing population density that include decreased intelligibility, hearing impairment, lowered task performance, and sleep deprivation. A new study has also shown that noisy environments caused by poor acoustics draw on the same limited brain resources as speech content. Another study found that hospital patients take significantly longer to recover from cataract surgery when construction noise is present. ASI Blogs, the company blog of Acoustical Solutions, Inc., discusses these recent developments in our living and working environments and notes how proper acoustical treatment can create more comfortable living and working spaces.
