Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Noisy heating and cooling equipmentincrease sound pollution.While no monetary savings are tied to lower sound levels, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a serious effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Dayton home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a number of things, such as the equipment, and the degree to which the compressor is insulated can add to the amount of noise it makes.

Although many heating and cooling systems built today are quieter than they ever have been, it's a good thought to compare sound ratings when assessing a new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if the equipment location is near bedrooms or living rooms.
