I avoided installing an AC in my house for the longest time because I felt there was no need to endure the sounds.
While some people find it soothing, I wouldn’t say I liked it at all.
I lived in an area where temperatures were easy to manage, and that my house was fully insulated made it easy to get by without installing one. All I needed was a good gas furnace to help keep me warm all winter long. I did not struggle with cooling my house since it was generally safe to be indoors even when the sun’s heat was scorching outside. However, all these changed when a job transfer necessitated my move. I had to adjust to living in an area where weather patterns were erratic, and it could get too hot or too cold. Unfortunately, my house was not well insulated since it was an old school model. My only option of surviving had an HVAC unit, which was already installed. My experience with the buzzing sound was not good, and I knew I had to find a solution fast enough to cope. I had heard about such adjustments and needed an expert to evaluate the possibility of applying one of the sound reduction methods on the air conditioning unit in my house. The HVAC technician advised on lining the interior of the ductwork using melamine foam. It would serve as an absorber that would reduce noise and at the same time serve as thermal insulation. I was able to sleep well again because I could hardly hear the noises from the drainage pipes.
