Is sound an issue for heating and air conditioning?

Yes. Noisy heating and cooling equipmentcontribute to sound pollution.While no monetary savings are tied to lower sound levels, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a serious effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Tulsa 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 degree to which the compressor is insulated can add to the amount of noise it makes.

Although the majority of heating and cooling systems manufactured today are quieter than they ever have been, it's a sound notion 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.
