Sound systems, TVs, home entertainment systems and video game consoles can produce very high levels of noise.
Please be considerate and check the volume on your devices. You may unwittingly be causing a disturbance!
To avoid problems, you can:
- Lower the volume
- Move speakers away from walls and floors – raise them up if you can. Keep the volume reasonable, taking into account the time of day. If in doubt, use headphones
- Balance the speakers of a home cinema system to fill the room evenly – subwoofer speakers can be especially disturbing
- Some children’s toys can be very noisy – if they are driving you mad they could be annoying your neighbours too. When it all gets too much, give them a quieter alternative.
