Insulation

Is there any reason to have insulation between interior walls in a shower? Gotta shower to do with one exterior wall and I know it needs it, but do you really gain much from it between a closet and your shower? I kinda figure it might've been good for the fiberglass insert that was removed .

Brad, for heat/cool loss, probably not...but for noise value, yes. We insulate interior walls in the homes we build/remodel strictly for noise issues.

I don't see much advantage to doing the shower walls at all unless they are an exterior wall or a wall between the bathroom and other living space.

I customarily pewt cheap R-11 insulation in all walls dividing bathrooms and bedrooms from each other or any other living space. It's cheap and it does cut down on the noise transmission. Customers appreciate it.

But for thermal insulation just for the shower? I don't think it's of much benefit unless it's a steam shower, of course.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Thanks for the replies, makes sense. The shower won't have nuttin' but a closet on one side and the other 1/2 of the bath on the other. Might just ditch the itchy, 20 year old stuff.
