Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Loud heating and cooling equipment increase sound pollution.While no cost savings are tied to less sound in your home, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a considerable effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Niagara Falls home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a number of things, such as how old and who manufactured the unit, and the degree to which the compressor is insulated can increase the amount of noise it makes.

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