Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Loud heating and cooling equipment contribute to sound pollution.While no cost savings are tied to less sound in your home, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a serious effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Jackson home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a number of things, 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 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.
