Loud heating and cooling
equipment increase sound pollution.While no monetary
savings are tied to less sound in your home, the
sound rating of a cooling system can have a considerable effect on
comfort and enjoyment of your Roanoke home. The sound level of an
air conditioner or heat pump depends on many issues,
such as how old and who manufactured the
unit, and the degree
to which the compressor is insulated can add to the
amount of noise it makes.
most heating and cooling systems built today are quieter than they ever have been, it's a good notion to compare sound
ratings when evaluating a new
air conditioner or heat pump,
particularly if the equipment location is near bedrooms or living rooms.
