It may not be the War of the Worlds but it is fast becoming the wars in the neighbourhoods.
The wider use of affordable surround sound and home theatre systems has bought with it significant noise issues '' his system's so powerful it rattles my windows'' was a comment from one enquiry wanting a solution on how he can stop his neighbour's music entering his house?
"I love my new home theatre system but I must turn it down when the kids go to bed, it just booms through the house", can you fix the problem?
Just a couple of the more common problems associated with modern living.
The ''affecting the neighbours'' issue will quickly replace the pool pumps and air conditioner noise as major problems which councils will have to deal with.
At TNC we believe that good planning and knowledge about how to control the unwanted side effects of your new sound system can go a long way in calming the neighbours and letting the kids sleep.
