Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Loud heating and cooling equipment add to sound pollution.While no financial savings are tied to lower sound levels, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a significant effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Grand Island home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a variety of factors, such as the equipment, and whether the compressor is insulated or not can increase the amount of noise it makes.

Although most heating and cooling systems made today are quieter now more than ever, it's a safe 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.
