Quiet Operation

Quiet Operation’s Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Is there really a difference between air conditioner and heat pump sound levels?

Most heating and cooling systems manufactured today are quieter than those produced in past years. But there is still significant variance in sound rating ratings among these products. Insulated compressor compartments, discharge mufflers and patented fan designs work to soften the sound of a hard-working, high-efficiency compressor. Top-panel orifices, compressor wrappers and indoor blowers are all designed to further promote smooth, quiet airflow.

2. Is sound an issue?

The amount of sound generated by a heating or cooling system can have a significant impact on comfort. Inside the home, a low sound level means no sudden blast of air at startup and smooth, vibration-free operation. Outside the home, low sound levels help you keep the peace with your neighbors. This is particularly important, given that many communities have noise ordinances.
