Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Heating and cooling that make a lot of noiseadd to sound pollution. Although no monetary savings are tied to less sound in your home, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a significant effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Albany home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a variety of factors, such as how old and who manufactured the equipment, and the insulation of the compressor can add to the amount of noise it makes.

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