Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Loud heating and cooling equipment increase sound pollution. Although 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 Wheeling home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on many issues, such as the equipment, and the degree to which the compressor is insulated can add to the amount of noise it makes.

Although many heating and cooling systems built today are quieter than ever before, it's a safe 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.
