Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Loud heating and cooling equipment add to sound pollution.While no cost savings are tied to lower sound levels, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a considerable effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Boise home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a number of things, such as the age and make of the equipment, and the insulation of the compressor can add to the amount of noise it makes.

Although most heating and cooling systems made today are quieter than they ever have been, 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.
