Description
Several studies show that noise has obvious impact on occupant comfort and productivity (Tang S K, and C T, 1998). In an indoor environment the main source of noise includes electrical equipments such as television, Other outdoor factors can also influence indoor noise a great deal, for example in busy towns traffic (automobiles, trains and planes) and industrial noise can be a major factor when considering indoor noise.

Use a noise meter to establish if your indoor noise level is within the acceptable tolerance. Noise is measured in decibels (dB). You might just notice a 3 dB change in noise level, because of the way our ears work. Yet every 3 dB doubles the noise, so what might seem like small differences in the numbers can be quite significant.

When the noise level has been proven to be problematic, there are several control techniques that can be employed, some can be introduced quickly and cheaply with little or not effect on day to day activities visit Health and Safety Executive for more information.
