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 a quieter home environment, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a significant effect on comfort and enjoyment of your Miami home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a variety of factors, such as how old and who manufactured the equipment, and the degree to which the compressor is insulated can contribute 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 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.
