Mechanical and HVAC soundproofing is something ignored and unknown. Soundproofing a mechanical room or HVAC system is an often-overlooked solution because many don’t realize it’s even an option. But there are many effective ways to mitigate the noise generated by loud, powerful machinery.
Machine rooms, wood working shops, machine shops, and engine rooms are usually designed as big open rooms, where the sound just bounces off the walls and ceilings, creating an even louder environment. The standard design and layout of these spaces often exasperates the loud conditions, transforming entire rooms into gargantuan speakers, but New England Soundproofing can address these issues with our fire-rated sound barriers and acoustical insulations, creating a safer, healthier, and more productive working environment for you, your family, and your employees. After a treatment by New England Soundproofing, you will be able to work and live in a safer and quieter envirorment. This not only satisfies you, but your employees, customers, and neighbors.
HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems are installed in practically every building, residential and commercial, today. And while these systems are extremely necessary, they can also be unrelentingly loud. Fans and ductwork can rattle and echo as the air passes through, and can easily conduct noises from one room to another. Air conditioning condensers are so loud that most cities and towns have ordinances governing their proximity to property lines.
Sound absorption and barriers will address these problems. Also, fans and ductwork that create a lot of echoing and noise can also be wrapped using our Sound Barrier. AC units located on the ceiling of homes or buiildings create a vibration issue to the unit below them. Isolating the unit on top of the roof allows for less vibration transfer to the unit below.
Have New England Soundproofing come assess your HVAC noise and see what the best solution is for you.
