Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Noisy heating and cooling equipmentcontribute 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 Indianapolis 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 add to the amount of noise it makes.

Although the majority of heating and cooling systems built today are quieter than ever before, 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.
