HVAC system noise can be distracting and interfere with daily activities. Proper acoustic treatment can help control both system noise and crosstalk.
Continuous or intermittent noise from an HVAC system can be distracting as well as disruptive. While mechanical engineers focus on a system delivering proper airflow, acoustic performance is often ignored.
When determining if an HVAC system requires additional attenuation, two noise paths must be considered; noise that travels through both the supply and return duct system paths, and “breakout” noise that travels through the walls of the ductwork into neighboring spaces.
Airborne noise in an HVAC system is attenuated with the addition of duct silencers, and breakout noise is attenuated with the addition of a dense duct lagging material wrapped around the outside of the ductwork to increase the STC of the duct walls.
Key Considerations for controlling HVAC noise include:
We use best-in-class techniques to examine acoustic problems before recommending a solution
Using data collected from our analysis, we create custom solutions to solve your unique acoustic challenges
Using rugged commercial grade materials, our intelligent acoustic solutions look great, sound amazing, and stand the test of time
Controlling HVAC noise can be a difficult task. It is critical that airflow design is balanced with acoustic performance. With over 30 years of experience with HVAC and duct design, we know how to strike that balance.
All silencers are not alike. Our systems are tested simultaneously for both aerodynamic and acoustic performance with air moving through them.
Just as critical for managing airflow, acoustic louvers help reduce noise generated by the system by acting as a noise barrier without reducing air intake.
Keeping noise inside the ductwork from escaping into the surrounding area can be achieved through a variety of duct wrapping styles.
An often over-looked element for decoupling vibrating equipment from surrounding structures, isolation hangers play an important role in controlling HVAC noise.
As experts in acoustic design, we can help develop an effective, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing acoustic solution that helps your organization improve the quality and productivity of time spent in your facility.
Our project managers will work with you to assess your noise control needs. With a keen focus on delivering a turn-key solution, we can help design an acoustic package to solve any noise issue.
Today, in the tough world of business competition, your brand goes beyond just a logo. When people step into your physical spaces, whether it is a store, office, or restaurant, they enter a carefully curated world that tells your brand’s story. This story goes beyond mere looks – it is about creating a connection that […]
In a recent article, we discussed restaurant noise and some of the challenges of fixing the issue. When we experience a place, it’s not just visual elements that we take in, but also acoustic elements. When restaurants are overly noisy, what should be an enjoyable time with friends or family becomes stressful and we want […]
Virtual meetings have become a staple in today’s business world. Despite the convenience and cost-effectiveness of virtual meetings, they can also present a unique set of challenges when it comes to communication. One of the main issues with virtual meetings is that it can be difficult to read body language and facial expressions, which can […]
