The only way to stop sound is using mass. It is a misconception that placing huge amounts of sheetrock will stop all sound from entering an area. It will not. When the sound hits a boundary like a wall or a fence it can spread directly around it, if the wave is big enough, go right through it.

Vibration, such as a furnace will produce, and low end rumble, need to be addressed specifically.

Insulation as a sound isolator is a negative effort. It may heat up the highs but over all, it is only part of a good plan.

Depending on what a person has existing as a barrier there may be a requirement to actually tear down some existing work in order to begin towards getting lower levels contained.

That's what I read anyway.
