Cooling Down – reducing HVAC system noise

There is enormous competitive pressure on suppliers to develop quieter HVAC and chiller plant. We’ve applied our engineering skills to design-in engineering noise control modifications for a new range of A/C units. As a result, the manufacturer can now quote sound power levels that are at least 4dB(A) lower than before, at, quite literally, no additional cost to the units whatsoever and with no effect on system efficiency. Moreover, the project was completed within a few weeks.

This has provided the company with a significant commercial advantage and illustrates the benefits of introducing engineering noise control techniques during the development of new products. Quoting the project manager:-

“.. is the unit actually running?! .. That’s an amazing result over such a short timescale”.
