Ducted system – This concealed unit in your roof area has multiple indoor outlets and sensors, servicing a whole house, e.g. over five rooms.

Do The Best Heat Pumps Have Different Noise Levels?

A new split-system heat pump will have very low noise levels inside and outside. You can expect a difference in noise ranges (declared by each manufacturer) from nineteen dB to fifty-three dB in the interior. The outside pump units can produce forty-two dB to sixty-nine dB.

But what do these dB numbers mean in your life? Here is a “translation”:

  • During the day at home alone, when quiet, you will probably experience thirty dBA.
  • When driving in your car without the radio on, you will probably experience fifty dBA.
  • A regular conversation will register at about sixty dBA. And wine and that will climb.
  • House chores like using the vacuum cleaner will record between seventy and eighty dBA.

If your interior needs high powered units, then you might need to consider an installation position for the motor that is not near your bedrooms or your neighbours’ bedrooms.

There are many factors that influence your purchase, and you will make the best choice when you get advice from our experts.
