Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Loud heating and cooling equipment contribute to sound pollution.While 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 Memphis home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a number of things, such as the unit, and whether the compressor is insulated or not can contribute to the amount of noise it makes.

Although many heating and cooling systems manufactured today are quieter now more than ever, it's a safe thought to compare sound ratings when shopping for a new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if the equipment location is near bedrooms or living rooms.
