A PROBLEM IN RESIDENTIAL ENVIRONMENT: THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NOISE INTRUSION AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION

In this discussion energy appears in the twofold context of a noise source and of a means to combat noise. The links between energy and noise which are of significance for the purposes of this study are noise input (neighborhood to house), noise output (house to neighborhood), and energy input (input into house, with concomitant impact on community through secondary effects on environment and economy). Brief mention is made of several corrective measures in housing construction which will cut down the energy consumption used to combat noise, Also, a list is presented of typical noise levels from various sources, the tolerable limits from such sources, and the probable public reaction to the peak level from these sources.
