From Insulation Outlook:

When designing an HVAC system, noise should be one of the primary considerations. In many cases, HVAC systems have served the dual purpose of temperature control and white noise. A certain amount of "white noise" is considered beneficial.

It's considered beneficial because its masking benefits help keep conversations private, have a relaxation effect, and can even help with concentration.

If a system becomes too noisy, however, it can prove disturbing to occupants.  In some cases, depending on the circumstances, may require repair.

 

It's considered beneficial because its masking benefits help keep conversations private, have a relaxation effect, and can even help with concentration. If a system becomes too noisy, however, it can prove disturbing to occupants and - depending on the circumstances - may require repair.

It is important to ensure that the fine line between acceptable white noise and intrusive noise is maintained. The acceptable noise level for a system is based on Noise Criteria (NC) curves, which were established in 1957......   READ MORE >

 

Understanding & Implementing Genset Noise Control

From Consulting / Specifying Engineer:
 

Genset noise-control principles are well understood, leaving economics as the primary limiting factor in implementing noise reduction strategies for specific applications.

 

We're seeing and expanding use of diesel genets for emergency standby power and/or for peak shaving.

Understandnig GenSet Noise Control

With the expanding use of diesel gensets for emergency standby power, peak shaving, and demand response, there is an increased focus on controlling the noise these generators create.

Whether gensets are located in enclosures outside a facility, inside, or on the roof, design engineers are making more efforts to control genset noise and vibration to reduce the effects on neighbors as well as building occupants. Whether gensets run continuously in prime-power applications, intermittently in demand response applications, or occasionally in emergency standby situations or testing, their operating sound levels may require remediation.   While local codes and zoning laws often require.....
