I rent the top part of a house. I can hear the people below me in the basement clearly. The noise is starting to drive me nutty. I know they are not trying to be noisy so my frustration is with the contruction of the house.
I am pretty sure (not 100%) that the noise is mostly coming from the vents. According to the tenants below they can't hear me but I can hear them clearly. Why is it that I can hear them so well and they can't hear anything from me?
My landlord is a cheap so and so....what I am trying to find out is...what is a simple solution to fix this noise barrier?
The floor/ceiling is not insulated and I do know he will not do anything about that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
