One of the most important ways to preserve your health is to get sufficient rest. If you toss and turn because of a noisy HVAC system, it can affect just about every aspect of your life. Depending on the dB level of your HVAC system, it could also damage your heating over time. While you could wear earplugs when you sleep, many do not find them comfortable and that alone can affect getting enough sleep or good quality sleep. The better answer is to address why the HVAC is so noisy and take steps to resolve the situation.
If it didn’t used to be noisy but is now, it could be a sign of a problem that can be resolved with air conditioning repair services. It may only need a good cleaning that can be accomplished with a maintenance visit. Of course, regular maintenance is important for other reasons, including keeping your utility bill reasonable and prolonging the life of the equipment.
If you have an older HVAC system, it might be a good time to consider installing a new one. You’ll not only gain in energy efficiency, but your HVAC contractor can recommend equipment that is known to operate with minimal noise. They can also choose the equipment that is right for the size of your home so that it doesn’t cycle more often than it needs to.
If neither of these is the cause for your noisy HVAC system, there is still a solution. A sound curtain can be put in place to absorb the noise the system makes. Another surprising tip is to have several houseplants in your home. It might sound surprising, but they can actually help with noise reduction.
