Air conditioning is a helpful system in any business, but it comes at a cost. The noise generated by HVAC equipment is offensive and loud. Constant noise like the hum of chillers, compressors or cooling towers is aggravating to listen to and potentially harmful to the people and environment closest to it. As a result, many municipalities have regulations on noise levels inside city limits, so there are also noise-compliance issues for companies to deal.
Why HVAC Noise Reduction Is Important
HVAC units put out noise in a variety of frequencies. Some sounds are more likely to affect comfort levels in the surrounding community than others, but all noise can be offensive. Properly-designed sound-absorbing HVAC noise barriers can absorb the offensive noises and significantly reduce it. The result is a quieter system, and an aesthetically-pleasing visual screen.
Employees Need Sound Protection
The Occupational and Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, says that employees can suffer hearing loss along with several other problems when they have exposure to sounds that exceed the 85-decibel level. Employees can have issues from ringing in the ears to depression and loss of productivity at work. Even an increase of just ten decibels while working causes a temporary loss in hearing that worsens with overtime shifts.
Controlling HVAC Noise Can Save Time, Money and Hassle
When you use a sound wall like the absorptive noise barriers at Sound Fighter Systems, the potential compliance and health-related risks are greatly reduced, if not eliminated altogether, potentially saving you money on noise testing and even vibration-related maintenance in the long run.
