Are you tired of the noises leaking through your ductwork? While your home's HVAC system may excel at temperature control, it likely struggles to reduce noise. A loud air conditioner or furnace can make working from home or even relaxing much more difficult. Luckily, there are several ways you can minimize the spread of sound in your home.
Your vents and ductwork tend to amplify your HVAC system's noises. The shape and material of your vents can play a huge role in sound transmission. Installing insulation and other soundproofing materials will minimize the spread of sound and improve your ductwork's overall efficiency. Minimize your HVAC system's sounds by applying a vibration-dampening product directly to your unit. This will reduce the noises your system makes via
vibration. It's important to note that while HVAC systems do make noise, they shouldn't be making loud, raucous sounds constantly throughout the day. Contact an HVAC technician for a routine check to ensure that your system is functioning correctly.
You can also line your ductwork with a sound-absorbing material like fabric-wrapped foam. This flame-resistant material will also insulate your ductwork and keep noises from traveling throughout the home. No matter which material you choose, always ensure it's safe to be in contact with your air supply. Choosing a low-quality soundproofing material can leak chemicals and particulates into your home. Protect your family and budget by making all HVAC system decisions with the assistance of a trained technician.
