The commercial HVAC system in your workplace keeps your staff cool in summer and cozy in winter. However, HVAC units can also make a lot of unwelcome noise. At times, this can be borderline intolerable for facility members and customers. We’ll explore some ways to keep HVAC noise pollution to a minimum.
Upgrade the System
Modern air conditioning and furnace systems are quieter and more energy efficient. If your facility still relies on a system from the 1990s, you could be wasting substantial energy and money every time you heat or cool your business.
Rearrange the Room
The noise pollution is greatest at the vents and in the ductwork. If possible, position seats, cubicles, and work areas away from vents. In some instances, a technician may be able to reposition the ducts and airways.
Absorb the Sound
Does the room include a lot of glass and metal? These two components are notorious for creating an echo effect. If possible, try renovating the workspace to include carpet and plaster.
Plants, believe it or not, also do a good job at reducing noise pollution. The leaves and stems absorb sound. Unlike walls with a rigid surface, plants have soft flexible surfaces. This causes sound waves to deform, thus muting them before they reach a person’s ears.
Add Privacy Booths
Privacy booths resemble phone booths and can nearly eliminate all noise. Invest in a booth or two and reserve them for staff members engaged in important projects.
