Whatever your business, if you’re installing any sort of industrial equipment from Air Handling to compressors to heat pumps then of course you would think that it’s common sense to get the quietist kit you can. And it is…..to a point.
And that’s because how Quiet something is depends on a couple of other factors as well as how many decibels it’s throwing in the direction of your neighbour.
So let’s get this straight. Any equipment can be described as quiet, and it might well be compared to other makes and models, but from a noise assessment point of view it can only be described as quiet in relation to the existing background noise, and how far away the equipment is from sensitive receiver (usually though not exclusively houses.)
Which means that sometimes even the “quietest” equipment will need a little extra TLC from the experts to help that planning application go through.
Just so you know.
