Noise control is important.

Noise generated from HVAC equipment can significantly impact Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). Noise control measures are required so that occupied spaces meet ASHRAE standards. Noise levels guidelines depend on the nature of the occupied space.

Common noise culprits:

  • Air handing units
  • Roof top units
  • Chillers
  • Fan coils
  • Air terminal units
  • VAV boxes
  • Condensers

Common noise sensitive sectors:

  • Schools
  • Healthcare
  • Hospitality
  • Office
  • Libraries
  • Arts & Leisure

Commonly missed noise considerations:

  • Duct construction and breakout noise
  • Aerodynamics and energy impact
  • Limited duct lengths or space
  • Speech privacy
  • IAQ impact
  • Budget and/or investment impact

Noisy buildings have an adverse impact to the productivity and well-being of occupants, greatly impacting the quality and investment of the building.

To design and build great buildings, consider how noise control can impact the environment, the system and IEQ including Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and energy consumption.
