Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Noisy heating and cooling equipmentincrease sound pollution.While no financial savings are tied to a quieter home environment, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a significant effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Kitchener home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on many issues, such as how old and who manufactured the equipment, and the insulation of the compressor 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 good 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.
