Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Loud heating and cooling equipment contribute to sound pollution.While no financial savings are tied to less sound in your home, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a serious effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Louisville home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a variety of factors, such as the age and make of the unit, and the degree to which the compressor is insulated can contribute to the amount of noise it makes.

Although the majority of heating and cooling systems built today are quieter now more than ever, it's a safe idea to compare sound ratings when assessing a new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if the equipment location is near bedrooms or living rooms.
