Interior walls

My bf's interior walls in his house are not insullated. Is that common?

Re: Interior walls

Yes... if you mean the interior dividing walls.... typically only the perimeter walls are insulated to prevent heat loss/gain from the outside.

Re: Interior walls

I would say so because most of my interior walls aren't insulated. However I don't know if that was a remediation skimp since my house flooded twice in '84 and '87. I haven't lived in a house yet where the interior walls were insulated but they were built between the 20's and 70's.

I think best practices now are to insulate all walls for sound proofing if not for energy efficiency.

Re: Interior walls

what is the easiest way to sound proofing interior walls? Our little ranch house is noisy room to room.
